Thoondu Beach in north Fuvahmalah Island is a hugely popular beach destination in the Maldives. Hundreds of people visit it every day and the number doubles during peak travel season. The strong currents may it a dangerous place to swim, but the appeal of the beach lies in its beauty and surfing opportunities.
The sand at the beach is formed by small, shiny pebbles rather than grain that sparkle in the sunlight and are very rarely found anywhere else in the world. Many come to Thoondu Beach to collect these pebbles as souvenirs. Also, the beach sees a unique phenomenon wherein part of the sand moves away from the shore towards the reef, creating a small lagoon in which visitors can swim. This phenomenon’s said to only occur on this island. It may not be a bikini beach, but Thoondu Beach’s natural beauty and unique conditions draw travellers from all over the world. Connected by Fuvahmulah’s airport, you can visit by daily flights between the island and Male.
