Addu Nature Park – Satisfy your tropical wanderlust
Cycle through the forestry trails of the undisturbed natural ecosystem that embraces the Eedhigali Kilhi and canoe alongside baby sharks and mantas through breathtaking mangroves, before snorkeling at the tip of Koattey to experience the exquisite underwater beauty to end your day with a warm chai while watching the golden sun as it dissolves into the skyline. If you’re a keen history fanatic, make sure you ask for a guided tour – the facts would blow your mind away!

An open community library that defies the traditional behind the wall concept of a library. Foh Keesa makes reading as relaxing as possible, as you read a book of your choice from the “Keesa” – Dhivehi name for a satchel used to carry valuables in the olden days. Under the shade of coconut palms on the shoreline, sipping on a coconut from the nearby stall, sitting on a joali – a traditional chair made from sticks and weaved rope, with the soft monsoon breeze against your hair, this would be pure bliss for any book lover.
Let the savory aroma of the exquisite dishes prepared by the world class chefs at Suvadive Café enchant you as the aroma lets you taste the food before it reaches your mouth. Apart from this, the name Suvadive holds a captivating story of history, from which you could get a glimpse of the British colonial and Suvadive era of the city while enjoying a freshly brewed coffee through the mosaic art on the walls. All in all, the mouthwatering food combined with the calming ambiance created by the ever so perfect play list and Instagram worthy fish pond would take your dining experience to a whole new level!
