The island, close to the equator, differs in several ways from the “typical” Maldives island and thus offers even experienced Maldives vacationers new impressions: Relatively large with 4.94 km², there are several villages with the appropriate infrastructure, a park as a “green lung” and an airport. Here tourists are not separated from the population, but experience Maldivian everyday life.
But the most striking thing is that Fuvahmulah is located alone in the Indian Ocean and not in an atoll. There are no nearby neighboring islands that form an atoll, nor are there any shallow areas; here the coast and the high seas meet directly.
Welcome to the heart of Fuvahmulah, where guesthouses offer a genuine taste of island life. These cozy accommodations capture the essence of Maldivian hospitality, providing an immersive experience for travelers seeking a more authentic stay. With a range of options, from traditional-style inns to modern retreats, Fuvahmulah’s guesthouses offer a home away from home.
