Feydhoo’s story is a curious one.
In the 19th century, the people now living between the leafy streets and tight-knit housing blocks here were the inhabitants of nearby Gan island (more on that one later). When the British came in the run up to WWII, Gan was transformed into an airbase, and the locals were shipped out to live on the next island along in the Seenu Atoll.
That was Feydhoo, which is today a pretty picture of lived-in Maldivian life.
Come and stroll the winding walkways and sample seafood curries with the locals – the welcome is always warm.
