Addu Atoll, aka Seenu Atoll, sees itself as the southernmost atoll of the Maldives. It lies south of the equator and is heart-shaped. Precisely, Addu Atoll is the location of Addu City. This City consists of the inhabited areas of Addu Atoll, namely the natural islands of Hulhudhoo, Meehoo, Maradhoo, Feydhoo, and Hithadhoo. The uninhabited Island of Gan also comes under Addu Atoll. Overall, there are approximately 19 other small uninhabited islands and sandbars also to be mentioned here. Addu stands as the main centre for economics and administration in the southern atolls. This large atoll is visited by the tourists to enjoy its mesmerizing islands, beaches, and scenic beauty. Addu coral reef is protected against storms by an unsubdivided coral reef and is that the home to a spread of distinctive fish, mammals, and birds. The corals here escaped the 1998 bleaching event that destroyed the rest of the coral reefs in the Maldives but has been affected by a more recent event in 2014, but the reef is slowly recovering.
