Feydhoo (Dhivehi: ފޭދޫ) is one of the inhabited islands of the Addu Atoll (formerly known as Seenu Atoll). It is the southern most inhabited island of Maldives.The people of Feydhoo are former residents of Gan. Gan was a very fertile island with its coconut palms, breadfruit trees, yam, binbi and numerous other types of trees flourishing. Even during the Second World War, the people of Gan were economically self-sufficient.

But in 1956/1957 they had to leave their livelihood they had been enjoying for so long, forever because The Royal Air Force of Britain leased the island to build a Military Base on the island and all the residents were moved to the next island to Gan in the West, Feydhoo, a less fertile and much smaller island whose own residents were moved to the Eastern side of Maradhoo. in 2013, the districts of Feydhoo and Maradhoo-Feydhoo were united to one district.
