An administrative division of the Maldives, Vaavu Atoll consists of Felidhu Atoll and the Vattaru Reef. It is located just over 60 km from the capital Malé, and is accessible by speedboat in approximately 90 minutes. Vaavu Atoll has 19 islands, of which five are inhabited. The atoll has the lowest population density, which means much of its beautiful beaches are deserted. It is relatively less commercialised in comparison to many of the other atolls.
Fishing and scuba diving are popular activities to be enjoyed by those who visit Vaavu. Diving schools found on the islands offer PADI courses, if you want to make the most of the magical marine life which can be found in abundance in the reefs here.
