Gaaf Alif Atoll , Fuamulah , Addu : February to 1st Week of April | 7 Nights 8 Days

Huvadhoo is the second largest of the Maldivian atolls and the second largest in the world (in terms of overall surface area). It consists of a circular-shaped ring of reefs with a smaller, thumb-like, extension of at the northern end enclosing a deep central lagoon (up to 85 m in depth) that is studded throughout with numerous smaller patch reefs, coral knolls, faros, and small coral islets. The outermost reefs of the atoll form a discontinuous barrier to the open ocean made up from 40 reef segments separated from one another by deep passages connecting the open waters of the Indian Ocean with those of the interior lagoon, making for some fantastic diving and marine life sightings!
