This established, informal resort is one of the larger islands and it's particularly popular with divers.

There’s no shortage of outdoor activities at Kuredu. Divers flock here for the surrounding marine life and the easy access to nearly 50 spectacular dive sites. Prodivers is the island’s excellent PADI dive centre and it also has a dedicated snorkelling centre, with guides offering trips around the colourful house reef and further afield. The watersports centre here is the largest in the Maldives, and the sheltered lagoon is the ideal spot to try windsurfing.

There are four main buffet restaurants, and you’ll be allocated one of these for your meals depending on your room type and location. For à la carte dining, choose from The Far East, with authentic Asian cuisine, delicious seafood and vegetarian dishes at The Beach, and Mediterranean cuisine at Franco’s with herbs and spices fresh from the island’s greenhouse. Of the seven bars, Babuna is the liveliest with evening entertainment, whilst Sai Kotari is a pretty tea house at the end of the jetty, serving speciality teas and coffee cocktails. It’s particularly lovely after dark, when underwater lights showcase the night-time activity of the surrounding marine life. New facilities include a large kids' club with indoor play area and outdoor playground.

As a larger island, there’s a real choice of accommodation, ranging from the traditional, simply furnished Garden Bungalows to the romantic Jacuzzi Beach Villas with a Jacuzzi in the open-air bathroom, and the Sangu Water Villas sitting on stilts over the lagoon.
