Welcome to Vaavu


The capital island is Felidhoo (population 500), though visitors are more likely to go to the neighbouring island, Keyodhoo, which has a good anchorage for safari boats. At the northern edge of the atoll, Fulidhoo is known for its boatbuilding. Rakeedhoo, at the southern tip of the atoll, is used as an anchorage by safari boats taking divers to the nearby channel.
