Fuvahmulah is the nearest atoll to the Equator and the first atoll in the Southern Hemisphere; it has many distinctive features which make it quite unique. It is a one-island atoll and the second largest island in the Maldives (if not for land reclamation). It includes a diverse range of habitats ranging from tropical woodlands and wetlands to freshwater lakes, well-vegetated marshland areas, white sandy beaches of different variations and pebble texture, plus gravel beaches and fertile agricultural lands greater in area than any other island in the Maldives.
The two freshwater lakes in the island, plus the many number of swamps and marshland areas give habitat to different plant and animal species not found anywhere else in the Maldives. The wetland areas of Fuvahmulah are mostly made up of dense vegetation of different kinds ranging from ferns to reeds traditionally used for weaving mats to an abundance of water spinach. Plant varieties include mango, pineapple, ccrewpine, banana trees, and many more. Fuvahmulah is also home to farmland areas where locals grow different crops such as cucumber, tomato, carrot, cabbage, pepper, capsicum, eggplant, and ladies' fingers which makes Fuvahmulah the ideal destination for a culinary holiday!
The traditional food of the Maldivians is based around fish, specifically tuna, chilli, and coconuts; while white rice and roshi, a flour based flat-bread, are staple items. Fish is normally smoked, fired, barbecued, or roasted. Pork products are strictly prohibited. When eating on local islands, it is worth noting that Maldivians traditionally eat with their fingers; therefore, food is not always served piping hot. Tap water is perfectly safe for brushing your teeth; however, you are advised to drink bottled or boiled water. All food on local islands is halal.
