Fuvahmulah-Travel Attractions - Best Black Sand Beach

Fuvahmulah is located in the administrative areas of the Gnaviyani Atoll  The name of the island literally means, “island of the Areca nut palms,” in the local language.  The island is about 4.5 km by 1.2 km with a submerged reef extending an additional three km southeast of the island.

Traditionally, Fuvahmulah was very difficult to access due to the fact that it didn’t have a lagoon and the island is heavily impacted by ocean swells.

However, in the early 2000s, a harbor was built on the southeast tip of the island and in 2011, a domestic airport further opened the island up to the rest of the country.
