Island Description

Fulidhoo is the most northern of the inhabited islands of Vaavu Atoll in the Maldives.

The Island is famous for Maldivian cultural events like Langiri, a traditional dance with drums and Thaara.

Fulidhoo is a typical Maldivian Island with very friendly neighbors. The island is popular for friendly sting rays, big sandy beaches, nurse sharks and good diving.

Getting to Fulidhoo Island from Male is actually a pretty easy affair as it’s only about 57km away from the Capital city, Male’ - meaning there are plenty of boats running to the area.

With the local beach located next to the jetty and many of the hotels facing the pristine turquoise waters of the lagoon, the other side of the island faced out onto the ocean with a nice cool breeze that was needed from the heat.

At the end of the island is the bikini beach big enough to host the few tourists staying on the island. top up your tan whilst swimming in the clear waters of the lagoon, perfect for relaxing

The island is actually pretty renowned for the local dancing and performances, so make sure you check them out one night as they’re often on for free at the cafes and local stadium

Some Things to do:

Whale Shark Snorkeling – every so often the resorts run a whale shark snorkeling excursion

Snorkeling Day Trip – if you’re not scuba diving join the crew of Fulidhoo dive for a snorkel trip instead and check out the stunning coral gardens around the island

Stingray Feeding –Originally local fishermen used to throw their scraps to the stingrays so they came in close to shore for a free meal. Now its a nightly thing more aimed at tourists. If you do go and watch it please just don’t touch them!

  • Scuba Diving – you can enroll in scuba diving and dive in one of the most interesting dive spots in Maldives
  • Kayaking in the lagoon – a much better way to enjoy the waters around the island – grab a paddle and enjoy the views
  • Fishing, Snorkeling, Suntanning etc
