Gan Laamu island

Ultimate guide (October 2022)
Gan Laamu (L.Gan) are group of islands in Laamu atoll, Maldives. Total length of the highway is 17 km (including bridges). This is the longest stretch of land in the Maldives. Further to the north, there is a separate uninhabited Baresdhoo island - being the exact location where Rogue One: A Star Wars Story movie was shot. The beaches are beautiful with excellent snorkeling on the house reef, where you can walk right from the shore. The island has many cheap local cafes and shops, and just a few tourists. But there is a lot of garbage everywhere - both on the coastline, as well as on the roads. In fact, there is no garbage only on the hotels' beaches, in the villages and near the sandbank, where you can walk from the northern side of the island. So this is not the best spot for scenic walking around the island. Shore and seabed: sand, stones. [edit]

Hotels [edit]

Reveries Diving Village is a three-star hotel with rooms' fares about US$90 per night - including all taxes. The hotel is very good, with great service and with dedicated bikini beach featuring sunbeds and daily cleanups. Value for money is great, while the service is quite the same like on some private island resorts. These are also some other hotels on the island. Please note that when choosing a hotel, you should look only for options with a private beach.

How to get there [edit]

Fly to Maldives international airport (MLE). Next fly to local Kadhdhoo airport (KDO). Cost of domestic flight Male-Kadhdhoo-Male is US$250 for adult or US$200 for child (below 12 years old) - including all taxes. These fares are valid only if your hotel makes a booking, since basic fares are much more expensive.
