Welcome to Dhaalu

In the north of the atoll are the so-called 'Jewellers’ Islands', Ribudhoo and Hulhudheli. Ribudhoo has long been known for its silversmiths and goldsmiths, who are believed to have learnt the craft from a royal jeweller banished here by a sultan centuries ago. Hulhudheli is traditionally a community of silversmiths whose many craftspeople still make jewellery, beads and carvings from mother-of-pearl. There are guesthouses on both islands attracting a small but growing stream of independent travellers.
