The Area

The Dhaalu Atoll is a cluster of 56 coral islands that stretches for 38 km across the clear waters of the Indian Ocean. Palm fringed beaches, sheltered lagoons and lush tropical vegetation are the typical scenery in this exotic part of the world.

The atoll has only recently been developed for tourism and only a handful of islands are inhabited, one of which is the 3km long Kandima, which borders a natural lagoon.

Prior to tourism some of these island were known for the skilled jewellers who traded with other islands in the region, but nowadays the main industry is the luxury resorts peppered throughout the atoll. The clear seas and healthy coral reefs create superb scuba diving opportunities and at certain times of year there is a good chance of sighting manta rays and hammerhead sharks.

To reach Dhaalu Atoll one has to fly from the international airport at Male, to the capital of the atoll, Kudahuvadhoo. From there it is a 20 minute boat ride to Kandima.
