The largest and longest natural island in the Maldives, with a size of 595.60 hectares and an infinite supply of green and blue, is the island Gan of Laamu atoll. One of the Maldives' most exquisite and lengthy white sand beaches is on this island. Tourists would keep discovering the blue lagoon and the vast reef system that is home to an abundance of marine life and coral gardens. The 18-kilometre causeway connecting the four islands of Gan, Maandhoo, Kadhdhoo, and Fonadhoo gives Gan a distinct vibe from the rest of the Maldivian islands. The island is not only locally popular for the fairy pond or freshwater pond called “Paree Fengandu” but also have a large historical ruin, “Gamu Haiy Theli” (last Buddhist temple of the Maldives) and Goatha Miskiy area which is a historical mosque spot where visitors can learn the rich history.
