Asdu Sun Island
- Location : Male' Atoll , No of Rooms : 30
At a distance of 32 kms North of the airport, a lush tropical paradise in North Male' Atoll, ASDU is famous for its live house reef jealously guarded and protected by it's management.With 30 bungalows facing the beach, it's one of the smallest, and probably the most informally managed, resort island in the Maldives. The management endeavours to retain the traditional simplicity and the natural balance of the island, while providing varied services/facilities for an enjoyable and satisfying holiday
The natural beauty of this tiny island is in its white sandy beach that recedes to crystal clear waters of the lagoon and in its exotic coral reef abundant in tropical fish of unimaginable colours. The fish literally swim with you and occasionaly nudge you for new acquaintance.
The reef, about 20 to 30 meters from the beach, is ideal for beginner-divers and for snorkeling. For the experienced diver there are the special off-shore reef diving spots as well as the channels that open to the Indian Ocean to have a rare glimpse of what life is with the undersea predators.
Some of the best surfing areas are in close proximity to Asdu – special trips can be arranged for guests who would like to go surfing.
