Gan was a RAF base until March 1976. British troops were situated here during the Second World War and there is a War Memorial built by the British on the island. Maradhoo Island close to Gan has a building that was used as an Armory by the British forces during the war.
The ‘British Loyalty’, a cargo ship was torpedoed by the Japanese during the War lies on the seabed inside the Atoll near Maradhoo. It is one of the best wreck dive sites in the Maldives, along with its unspoilt marine life and verdant dive points. The site is just a short Dhoni ride away from the resort therefore at a prime location for diving and snorkeling. Divers who expect an abundance of reef fish may be disappointed with Addu Atoll. But those who want to see wrecks, large manta rays, Sharks, turtles and generally big fish all year around, well be delighted with the diving.
