Dhaalu or South Nilandhoo Atoll is the most southern atoll on the western central chain of Maldivian Atolls. It is 30km long and roughly 20km wide, located 50km west of Meemu and separated by the Dheburideetheree Kandu from north Nilandhoo Atoll. There are 46 islets to be found with only eight of them inhabited. The largest island Kudahuvadhoo is also the start of the 40km long Kudahuvadhoo Reef, the largest unbroken reef in Nilandhoo. Some of the other islands are Velavaru, Hulhuvehi, Bulhalafushi, Gemendhoo, Kiraidhoo, Kadimma, Vaani and Eboodhoofushi.

Dhaalu is one of the most remote atolls you will find on the Maldives with plenty of opportunities to be the first on a dive and to explore whole parts of reefs. It is diving in rich waters with many fish and extremely healthy coral formations.
