The Addu Atoll is one of the remaining undiscovered dive sites in the world. I haven't seen coral reefs that are this vibrant and in such good shape in the past 30 years. Every reef is home to a large number of fish. If you want to explore the outside of the atoll, you can leap onto barriers that descend to the Indian Ocean's floor. You pass past "farms" of gorgonian fans that are between 10 and 50 metres tall. Sharks will occasionally suddenly appear, scan the divers, and then go. As we descend farther, we can see tunas of 300 pounds circling us.

The massive Sulzer engine is covered in yellow snapper as it swims inside the vast engine room. All of the diving in Addu is pure, unspoiled, undamaged, and bright. You won't see any other divers, which is the best possible outcome. The proprietor of Aquaventure, Marc Kouwenberg, agrees that everything in our world is about people.

Excellent guesthouses, the bulk of which are located on Maradu-Feydoo, can be easily reserved through our colleagues at Aquaventure in Addu Atoll. We'll stick to Gan's history, though, and base ourselves at the Equator Village Resort for this particular journey. This is the most unlikely yet completely adorable hotel in the Maldives. The Equator Village Resort, once the Royal Air Force Station, has undergone a thorough makeover. A series of adorable little cottages with palm-fringed fronts and tin roofs make up the rooms. The interiors, however, are spacious, entirely air-conditioned, and equipped to world standards. The former sergeants' mess is now home to the bar, restaurant, and brand-new pool.
