Vaavu is the smallest administrative unit in the Maldives archipelago. The atoll consists of 19 islands, 5 of which have a permanent population - Fulidhoo, Keyodhoo, Rakeedhoo, Thinadhoo and the atoll's capital, Felidhoo Island. For tourism, Vaavu was opened in 1975. Here is one of the most popular diving spots in the Maldives - Fotteyo Kandu. The Vaavu Islands are also known for their stunning coral reefs. On the eastern side of the atoll, the reefs are protected from the effects of the El Niño current and are preserved in their original form. The unspoiled nature of the ocean is Vaavu's greatest asset. On several islands of the atoll there are quite developed guesthouses, the main share of which is on the island of Fulidhoo. There are also several resorts on Vaavu. Read more about the most popular hotels and guesthouses on the islands of the Vaavu Atoll.
