Fuvahmulah Adventure

Fuvahmulah (Dhivehi: ފުވައްމުލައް) is an island (atoll) in the Maldives.
The island is also known as “dhivehi baseans “Island of the Areca nut palms”, Fuvah (or “Fua”) in the local language. The original name of the island could have been Mulah, but was called Fuvahmulah (the Mulah with the areca nut palms) to distinguish it from Boli Mulah – another island in ancient Maldives.

But to me, it is now the island of the sharks, as I experienced some wonderfulshark encounters – and the island gave me my first pictures and footage of the elusive thresher shark.

I dived with Fuvahmulah Dive School ( and stayed in Veyli Residence, a small, pleasant hotel. Check out the website for more info and prices.
