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.
