Maa Kandu & Kuda Kandu          

Maa Kandu & Kuda Kandu. Since the island of Kaashidhoo is located in the midst of the Kaashidhoo Kandu, or Kardiva Channel it is often referred to as having two parts. From the two parts, Kuda Kaashidhoo Kandu is the channel south of Kaashidhoo Island.


Gan is the southernmost island of Addu Atoll in Maldives. It is the second largest island of the atoll, after Hithadhoo, and measures 2.2561 square kilometres (0.87 sq mi) in area.

Gan Island has now a hotel catering for tourists and is connected by causeways to the neighboring islands of Feydu, Maradu and Hithadhoo.


Kaafu is a region of the Maldives. Malé, capital of the Maldives is naturally located within the North Malé Atoll, but it is not part of the Kaafu administrative division.

Dhaalu is another atoll in the Maldives. Some of the islands in this atoll have remains from the Buddhist period, but none of them have been properly excavated yet. Mysterious mounds known as hawittas are found in Kudahuvadhu. The old mosque of Kudahuvadhoo, possesses some of the finest masonry in the country. Gemendhoo in Dhaalu was abandoned after the Tsunami of 2005 destroyed the buildings.
