Gaafaru island is only one island of Gaafaru atoll, part of Kaafu Atoll – the one that includes also MALE, main city of Maldives and Hulhumale, the airport island. Gaafaru is 61 km far from the Ibrahim Nasir airport.
Gaafaru is not the nearest one of the inhabited local islands, that offer hotel for tourists, but it is one of the closest and still tropical ones. Most of the islands close to the airport are fully used, you can find there more hotels and on such a small area you can already feel the effect. Not only that you meet more tourists and one of the „dream vacation conditions“ is beach only for you, it might happen that you find no free chair on the beach.
There is big white sandy beach for tourists on the island with chairs and umbrellas to use for free. There are no waves coming to the beach so you can easy enjoy the relax in the water anytime. Snorkeling from the beach is possible as well, just choose the high water level time.
There are 5 shops on the island, where you can buy souvenirs and some food, sweets, fruit etc.
There are 4 coffees, where you can sit down and relax drinking traditional milk coffee or black tea. One of them is on the roof with nice seaview with the harbour.
