Addu Atoll (Seenu administrative unit) is a small roughly triangular atoll on the southern hemisphere just south of Fuamulaku Atoll (Gnaviyani). It is the most southern atoll in the Maldives and a popular location for travelers and divers around the world. The main islands of Addu are Gan, Feydhoo, Maradhoo and Hithadhoo in the west all connected with each other by bridges. In the east we find the islands Meedhoo and Hulhudhoo (combined as one island) and Villingili. There are many other uninhabited islets popular for scuba diving and well worth a visit. Hithadhoo is with a population of more than 10000 inhabitants the capital of the southern Maldives rivaling Male as the most important city. If you are looking for a great selection of places to stay, visit Hotel in Maldives for more information.
The action thrilled Kuda Kandu Corner at the outer reef in front of the famous Kuda channel is one of the top dives in Addu. The British Loyalty is a huge oil tanker which was torpedoed by the Japanese in the end of WWII, today overgrown in the best soft and hard corals and a fantastic array of fish is living near this wreck. All diving and snorkeling is excellent but most dives tend to be on the outer side of the northern reef.
