The Addu Atoll region
ADDU ATOLL- ADDU CITY is unlike other atolls of Maldives, Addu Atoll or Addu City possesses a natural anchorage within the atoll basin, as the atoll is land-locked with large islands surrounding the atoll. This results in a natural harbor that is very calm and safe for sea vessels at all times, and is not affected by seasonal changes. The atoll possesses four channels, which lead into the inside.In the north are the Kuda Kandu and Maa Kandu in the south,the Gan Kandu and the broad Villingili Kandu is to the southeast.
There are unique features in the islands of Addu Atoll.The islands are protected from the storms and high waves of the Indian Ocean by barrier reefs. Coconut palms, the national tree, are able to grow almost everywhere on the Islands. There are small lakes, wetlands, and marshy taro fields in the islands that are unique. Also, White tern known as the "dhondheeni" by Adduans gives the Atoll a uniqueness as it is found only in Addu Atoll in Maldives.
Addu Atoll also possesses particularly rich whale and dolphin fauna. A great diversity of species has been found there. Addu Atoll is the only area in the Maldives that was not affected by the 1998 global coral bleaching. The south of the Maldives was spared from the “too warm” major ocean currents (El Niño); the bright and healthy corals start at the top of giris and thilas (about 1 meter [3 ft] under the surface) and slope down with the reef to a depth of 30 meters (98 ft) or more.
Climate is warm, humid and yet made pleasant enough by the cool breeze wafting in from the sea. The climate, similar to the rest of the islands in the Maldives, is determined by two monsoons. The rainy South-West monsoon begins during April and continues until October, while the generally fine North-East monsoon prevails from December to March. The mean daily maximum temperature is 30°C while the daily minimum is 25°C.
Hulhumeedhoo can be described as an island village where the surrounding sea is a rhapsody in blue, hugging one of the largest beaches in the Maldives. From the sky, it looks neat with thick vegetations and long straight roads, and the silvery stream of Kilhi.
It is located 73.23°E of longitude, and 0.58°S of latitude, stretching approximately 10 km long along the eastern rim of the atoll.
