Vaavu atoll

Ultimate guide (July 2024)
Vaavu is an atoll in the Maldives, located just to the south of South Male - the central atoll. It has no luxury island resorts, but there are five local islands. Beaches are not the best in the country, but not bad anyway. In general, this is a great place for the island hopping - searching for the new experience. Shore and seabed: sand, stones. [edit]
This island ranks #15 of the "Best atolls in the Maldives"
