The Maldives is one of the world’s most popular and sought-after holiday destinations, famous throughout for its astonishing natural beauty. The one thousand two hundred tropical islands which make up this Indian Ocean nation are a picture postcard of paradise: with soft, white sands, swaying coconut palms, and brilliant, azure lagoons.

Addu is one of the most untouched, and interesting Maldivian atolls. With astonishing marine life, including all-year Manta Ray and dolphin sightings, fascinating colonial history, and a spectacular southern hemisphere setting, the atoll is popular with divers, as well as those wanting to get off the beaten path to find their own, untouched slice of Maldivian bliss. Ismehela Hera is on the western edge of Addu atoll. A natural island with its own, small lake, Ismehela Hera is blessed with stunning ocean views, a beautiful beach, crystal clear lagoon, and lush tropical vegetation. Close to the local island village of Hulumeedhu, Ismehela Hera is a great place to explore Addu’s unique cultural heritage.
