Fuvahmulah

one & only

Fuvahmulah is unique and the most beautiful island in the Maldives, which is located on the equator between two South Atolls -Addu and Huvadhoo. Unlike the other two thousand Maldivian islands, which are coral reefs, Fuvahmulah is of volcanic origin, which makes the island more similar to the Indonesian islands Bali or Gili. It is the only island of the Maldives archipelago with fresh water lakes, lush tropical vegetation - the island is covered by mango trees, coconut palms, papaya, and different kinds of flowers.

The treasure of the island is the unique white pebble beach, which is included in the list of ten unique beaches of the world. Over millions of years, under the influence of ocean currents, unique reef formations

and several kinds of pebbles were formed.

The population is 14,000 people, the locals having their own dialect, which is quite distinct from the official Maldivian language “Divehi”.  Local houses are spacious, having huge, private back yards, patios, surrounded by a beautiful front garden with gorgeous flowers and fruit trees.
