How to Get to Fulidhoo Simon about to board the ferry Fulidhoo is in the Vaavu Atoll and can be reached by public ferry from the capital Male. Are you planning your next adventure?
Peter, Australia Feef was an excellent host and the breakfast was superb Ahmed, USA Great location, all the furniture made by the owner, very original: Air condition is working very well. Ahmed, Maldives Very nice location.
Despite its small size, Fulidhoo has a mosque, school, health centre, community centre, council offices, and a number of general stores selling snacks and basic supplies. He took us fishing, we went snorkelling and fed the stingrays. We loved feeling like we had an island to ourselves.
Some plastic bottles wash up on the beach. Mohammed - the manager - is a very nice guy, dedicated to please his guests and make their stay unforgettable. Where to Stay on Fulidhoo When we were on Fulidhoo at the end of April there were only two guesthouses, but a few more are due to open soon. There are no over-water bungalowsno sunset cocktails, no infinity pools, no cafes lining the beach.
They also arrange snorkeling trips. There are only three ferries a week. We heard it can sell out the weekend starts on Fridays hereso we arrived at the Villingili Ferry Terminal a few hours early. Charming little dining hall with sandfloor and handmade furniture. Instead, we felt blissfully relaxed and enjoyed lazy days of walks, swims, and naps.
We even loved the lack of restaurants—we ate every meal at our guesthouse, which made things easy.
The sandy main street that runs down the centre of the island also has a number of souvenir shops selling colourful sarongs and dresses, but they only open twice a week when guests from a nearby resort come to visit. The guesthouses prefer you to pay with US dollars, but they allowed us to pay with a mix of Maldivian rufiyaa and dollars.

In the early mornings, fishermen paddle out to sea on surfboards and at sunset hundred of crabs scamper in the sand. It was served with roshi flatbreads and fruit.
