HA. Gallandhoo

The rocky 12-hectare island of Gallandhoo is located at the Southern tip of Haa Aliff Atoll. Within the vibrant and rich reef of Gallandhoo resides coral gardens that house schools of magnificent marine life, while the white sandy beaches are frequent hatching grounds for turtles of various kinds. It is also home to a great number of Lesser Noddies, which can be seen here throughout the year, especially during sunset. The current President of the Maldives, President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih, declared this island an environmentally protected conservation island in 2019, under the Environment Protection and Preservation Act.
