Island in Lhaviyani Atoll

Newer Older

Lhaviyani Atoll or Faadhippolhu Atoll is an administrative division of the Maldives.

Lhaviyani Atoll is located between 5° 15" and 5° 35" N and between 73° 20" and 74° 40" E. The capital of the atoll is Naifaru. There are a total of 54 islands in the atoll of which only 4 are inhabited, namely Naifaru, Hinnavaru, Kurendhoo and Olhuvelifushi. The formerly uninhabited island of Maafilaafushi was resettled in the 1980s in order to relieve the lack of land availability in Malé. There are four resorts in the atoll, namely Kuredhu, Komandoo, Kanuhuraa and Palmbeach . The only canning factory in the country is in Felivaru located between Naifaru and Hinnavaru. Traditionally, Maldivians call this atoll simply 'Faadhippolhu', without adding the word 'Atholhu' at the end. This is done only with the names of some atolls.
