The first guests at Fushifaru Maldives, located at northeastern Faadhippolhu atoll, were given a proper Maldivian greeting at the pier. They were welcomed with the traditional bodu-beru drums and the sounding of a conch shell. In the ancient days, residents of every island were alerted to important events by the blowing of the sea conch, and so it drew the staff to the pier who at once demonstrated that their services were top-notch and satisfactory for holiday seekers. The guests reached this small gem of an island after a 35-minute seaplane ride from the Male’ International Airport.
Fushifaru Maldives is a small island, but they offer much. For starters, the island is right in the middle of two channels that connect Faadhippolhu atoll’s inner lagoon to the Indian Ocean. Fushifaru Kan’du, the larger of the two, is a National Marine Protected Area. It teems with marine flora and fauna that would make underwater photographers swoon. Divers find the channel highly appealing. There are three renowned dive spots there; one of them, the Fushifaru Thila, is the single most extraordinary diving spots in Maldives, considering that it is home to a large marine cleaning station.
Fushifaru Maldives is now the custodian to this exquisite marine wonderland and is geared to preserve its ecosystem, while at the same time sharing all of its glory with visitors from all over the globe. You can opt to go snorkeling and still witness the glorious ocean life. Or you can check it out without getting wet thanks to the semi-submarine.
Only a few meters away from Fushifaru Maldives stretches a lovely sandbank whose shores are gently washed by the turquoise waters of the lagoon. This sandbank makes for a surreal private picnic spot. Activities like paddle boarding can take you there as well, and you can explore the shallows populated by tiny darting fish scintillating in the tropical sunshine.
Accommodation options at Fushifaru Maldives include sunrise and sunset Beach Villas – also available with attached private pool, just an upgrade away – and Water Villas suffused with absolute bliss.
