Fulidhoo is located on Vaavu Atoll, the least populated atoll in the Maldives. Offers really amazing diving and an authentic Maldivian atmosphere. With only five populated islands, this atoll embodies tranquility and tradition, with an devotion of fishing and music. Being the least commercialized atoll in the Maldives, the beaches are usually very quiet and give you a feeling of absolute peace throughout the island.


Fulidhoo is one of the islands of the Vaavu Atoll, located in the Laccadive Sea. The island is located 55.7 km (35 miles; 30 nautical miles) south of the country’s capital, Malé. It is 0.675 km long and 0.200 km wide, with an approximate population of 400 inhabitants. This island is very special, as it belongs to a beautiful lagoon with wonderful marine life around it.

Vaavu is the smallest of all the atolls in terms of population density. Its low population level has contributed to the preservation of its deserted white sand beaches and impressive natural landscapes. Even among the Maldives, difficult to impress with turquoise images of paradise, these islands are famous for their lush natural beauty.

Small in size and population, Fulidhoo is home to a crystal-clear lagoon in the east of the island and an impressive reef to the west. At dawn, the fishermen set sail and during the day the locals prefer to relax in the shade or swing on the Maldives swings. At sunset, both locals and tourists delight the sunset on the bikini beach, with hundreds of crabs running on the sand.

Along this street you will find a number of souvenir shops and they usually trade twice a week when visitors come from neighboring resorts on the island for excursions.
