The East side is the Atoll edge and therefore too rough for swimming but has great sunrises!

I suggest you choose the West side (sunset side) – they have done some sand pumping but made it ‘au natural’! beach is long narrow and natural – snorkelling excellent – and they have cleared some of the sea grass – but also – little fishes and turtles go in there – so they have left some as natural habitat environment.

Dining / lounging around in day time great as : 3 x swimming pools and 3 x bars next to each other.

Building structure is typically Maldivian resort style – all sandy floors etc. There are a couple of lakes on the island – have not idea what they doing with that.

The majority of the dive school staff are all 'Maldives' experienced professional divers and have an excellent range of unspoilt dive sites, definately worth doing a scuba course if you havent dived before.

The island is 4kms long so great for cycling. Excursions good as lots of opportunity for local islands and lifestyles, something you dont get to see on most Maldivian resort islands as well as seeing the historical island of Gan.

Hope this helps you Lindsay :-)

Personally I think this would feel like a 'resort' as opposed to a small intimate island in the indian ocean.Not something I would be looking for,so thanks for the info ,one to cross off the list for me too.

Someone forgot to mention --lots of concrete and Gan is an old militry/ airforce base, linked to local islands . It is also the furthest from Male--requiring an internal flight after a 12 hour journey from the UK..

I don't think there is loads of concrete. Yes Gan was an old milatry base but that isn't the island. You catch an internal flight from Male to Gan then quick 15 min speedboat to Herathera. Bit like Male you wouldn't want to stay there but you just pass through.
