Veligandu, offers comfort and pleasure at the end of your journey. There are a few places - even in the Maldives - that can compare to the island's natural beauty. Encircled by beautiful beaches of fine powdery sand and a huge sandbank of 80 metres on one end, Veligandu is a haven of peace and tranquility, the perfect place for a relaxing holiday. The designs of the resort's architecture, right down to the final touches, are authentically Maldivian. Apart from the thatched roof and the fine white sand on the floor, Veligandu offers real Maldivian charm, a high standard of services, friendly and experienced staff; it has an extra-ordinary elegance that is almost beyond compare. This is the real Maldives.A short scenic flight of 15 minutes that will carry you over some of the beautiful Maldivian islands and reefs, will take you to the landing platform right at the edge of the sand bank that Veligandu is famous for.

RECREATIONAL FACILITIES: If you are considering tanning seriously, consider Veligandu seriously. Veligandu in local language means a large stretch of sand, and this is virtually what the island is. A large L-shaped stretch of white sand that stretches out into the crystal clear aquamarine lagoon that surrounds this sandbank in the Indian Ocean. This is the stuff that a beachgoer's dreams are made of.

DIVING: Diving off Veligandu - The Dive sites around Veligandu offer the same underwater grandeur that Maldives is well known for. However the dive school advises that the sites' degree of difficulty is lower than some advanced divers may expect. Day excursions are organised for advanced divers who would like to experience more difficult sites. The house reef of the resort is about 150 metres away from the beach. However the long jetty of the resort takes you right over the edge of the reef from where you can step down into the waters over the reef. Masks, snorkels and fins are available from the dive school. Night diving on the house reef is available until 10.00 p.m. every night. The hammerhead point is one of the most exciting attractions around Veligandu, where the chances of sighting these magnificent creatures are quite high. Boat trips are available everyday of the week. Full day, early morning, and night dive excursions are organised regularly. Independent diving is available at the house reef. All the dive sites are within reach in 10 to 60 minutes by boat. Single dives and dive packages are available for certified divers
