How to Get: Transfers

Addu Atoll is a 75 minute flight south of Malé International Airport(VIA). Gan International airport is Addu City's main air gate. The airport is currently served by domestic carriers Maldivian and Flyme, as well as SriLankan. Private jets are also able to land and park at Gan due to its new international status. SriLankan Airlines operates daily between Colombo and Addu City. South African Airways flys weekly to Gan international airport from Johannesburg.

A cheaper and more adventurous way to get Addu City isa a cargo boat from Malé that's run through the atolls anchoring at some islands along the way. Although this jorney may take 2-3 days, it definitely lets you enjoy the beauty and interact with lively locals.

There are 3 banks in Addu atoll, Bank of Maldives, State bank of India and Maldives Islamic Bank. ATMs are available and you can usually withdraw cash from your credit cards. There are 2 post offices located in Gan and Hithadhoo.

Hithadhoo it is about 13.5 kilometers from the Gan International Airport. There are several ways you can reach your hotels in Hithadhoo island from the airport.

  • By bus: There are local buses that you can take from the Gan International Airport to Hithadhoo. Travel time is about 25 minutes to reach this place by bus. The rates are also affordable in Bus.
  • By taxi: You can also use taxi services from the GIA to this place. The rates are a bit higher than the local bus services, but taxi rides are very much comfortable.

The Island

The islands on the atoll's western side have been linked by a man-made causeway that links the islands of Hithadho, Maradhoo, Maradhoofeydhoo, Feydhoo and Gan, an extent of 14km. Getting around is fairly easy there. You can rent bicycles or scooters. Taxis are always available. Bus services and ferries are also regularly operated. It is also nice to walk around the island.

Hithadhoo is the second largest island in the Maldives with a surface area of 525.7 ha. It has a length of 6.8 km and a width of 1.8 km at its widest point. It is also the second largest inhabited island in Maldives with population about 12,000 residents. Because of their educational and intellectual background derived from their ancestors, the locals are a friendly, hospitable and peace loving people, at the same time reserved and in control of their emotions. In Addu old customs and Islamic traditions are respected, while allowing the necessary changes in lifestyle to be compatible with modern development. No one sleeps in the streets, or goes to bed hungry. In this sense, being a small atoll in a small nation has its blessings, for everyone knows each other and is willing to lend a hand. The livelihood is mainly based on Fisheries and tourism. Three tourist resorts, together with Gan international Airport and Hithadhoo Regional Port, operate in Addu City. Small scale agricultural farming exists and most people are employed by state and government institutions.

Hithadho island has a lush vegetation, mangroves and marshy taro fields which are unique throughout the islands of Maldives. The part of the island south of the town is lushly vegetated with palms and shrubs, whilst the northern end of the island consists of a partially stony, unreal scrubland, which can be explored only on narrow trails. These habitats are home to a various species of seabirds, fish and crustaceans. In addition, there is a huge population of fruit-bats and wild ducks, fowls and cats in the wild.

There are many types of indigenous tropical fruits and vegetables which is the basis of the local cuisine in the early days. Plantain, breadfruit, taro, yam, tapioca, cassava, mango, banana, guava, papaya, watermelon are some of the common locally grown produce.

Hithadhoo Town is marked by dusty roads, narrow lanes, leaning houses and dense vegetation. Island traffic is generally quite colourful, particularly when hundreds of island school children dressed in a multitude of differently coloured school uniforms are queueing up for the bus.

The Beach

There is no official tourist beach on the island. Of course, you will find beaches near your guesthouse, but this is not the beach you should post on Instagram. In most places, the entrance to the water is rocky, so coral shoes will be just right.

But if you want to swim and sunbathe in a bikini, we recommend going to the north eastern tip of the island. It's about 20 minutes by bike from Hithadhoo's center. There are no amenities on the beach except shady trees. Here, in addition to white sand, you will also find a good house reef snorkeling.

Called as Koattey, these reef offers a great snorkeling that's safe for people of all ages. The reefs have a unique coral formation and abundant marine life. The house reef are easily accessible. The clear waters and the perfect temperatures make the snorkeling experience absolutely wonderful.

Diving

Addu Atoll is the only area in the Maldives that was not affected by the 1998 global coral bleaching. Divers looking for large, colourful coral colonies of all species and forms will not be disappointed. Addu Atoll is internationally famous for its wreck dives, large manta rays, sharks, turtles and bigger fish in general, all throughout the year, as opposed to an abundance of smaller reef fish. Addu Atoll is one of the few places in the Maldives where giant manta rays, with wingspans of 5 metres plus, can be found throughout the year. The channels and outer reefs of this atoll are also home to a number of shark species, hawksbill and green turtles, and abundant schools of large fish.

You'll find the dive school at Equator Village on Gan island. The Diverland's team of PADI instructors offer fun diving trips and a full range of dive courses from the entry-level Open Water Diver certification up to professional Divemaster. Once here you will soon be enjoying some of the very best diving the Maldives has to offer.
