Your decision to visit Addu Atoll is a choice see a very different side of the Maldives. It is certainly not the usual tourist experience.

Your hourlong flight from Male International Airport to Gan will be unforgettable. From a vantage point up in the sky you will see Atoll formations islands and of course the blue ocean glittering below you. Before landing in Gan you will notice that the island is larger than the usual Maldivian isle.

With its very substantial length of 5 km and width of 3 kilometers it is what we would call a real island. The resort nestled in a sleepy corner of the island about 1km away from the airport is called the Equator Village because it is situated on one of the rare Maldivian resorts lying south of the Zero Degree Latitude.

All the islands in Addu Atoll are connected via a series of causeways. The length of all the Addu islands come up to approximately 18 kilometers.

Gan which is one of the four largest islands has a population of 25000. Since this allows you a rare tourist opportunity to interact with locals excursions are a must in order for you to get an impression of the real way of life of Maldivians.

Gan was a RAF base until March 1976. British troops were situated here during the Second World War and there is a War Memorial built by the British on the island. Maradhoo island another in Addu Atoll has a building that was used as an Armory by the British forces also during the war.

The British Loyalty a cargo ship was torpedoed by the Japanese during the War lies on the seabed inside the Atoll near Maradhoo. It is one of the best wreck dive sites in the Maldives along with its unspoiled marine life and verdant dive points. The Equator Village just a short dhoni ride away is therefore at a prime location for diving and snorkeling.

Hotel guests are allowed to move freely among the islands to experience the local culture and the way of life of Maldivian people. The Equator Village has free bicycles for our guests who wish to explore the islands on their own. Apart from the local life the Addu islands also boast the lushest vegetation in the Maldives. There is also a white sandy beach just 100 meters away from the hotel for the guests to enjoy.
