Funadhoo Island, Maldives Overview

Funadhoo Island is the former capital of Shaviyani Atoll in north Maldives. Its name is derived from the local ‘funa’ flower that is indigenous to the country. The island is still developing and does not have many modern amenities, but it remains a great location for swimming and snorkelling.

The pen-shaped island is surrounded by a coral reef which has dried up in some parts, but the other parts still house beautiful marine life. There are also the ruins of an ancient mosque and tombstones that date back to the 13th century. Located 218 kilometres from Male, Funadhoo Island is in one of the least accessible atolls and you’ll need to charter a sea plane or use the public ferry to reach.
