Tourists love the island of Gan for its picturesque coves, green palm trees and small fishing villages. On the islands there are about 20 sites suitable for diving. Gan Island hotels in the Maldives are not diverse. A few years ago, the only hotel on the island was represented. However, the infrastructure is rapidly developing and today several hotels of different categories are presented to the choice of tourists. In hotels you can use the services of a spa. Also to the attention of tourists are private beaches, where no one can interfere with enjoying the nature of the island.
Gan is the second in terms of infrastructure development island of Maldives after the capital - Male. Only on these two islands there are cars. The main transport in the Maldives is the so-called dhoni - boats, which the locals drive quite virtuously. True, to get on such a boat for a long distance is quite difficult - this type of transport does not have great speed. Seaplanes are more convenient for moving between islands. You can also go fishing on dhoni to catch exotic species of fish. Caught seafood in local restaurants can immediately cook and serve.
