Dhoonidhoo, a wooded islet, lies about 0.8 mile NW of Funadhoo.

A large silver tankstands on the E central part of the island; a breakwater extends about 25m N on the N side of the island.

Small vessels, during the Southwest Monsoon, can moor on the E side of the circular reef about 0.8 mile NW of Dhoonidhu. A vessel can secure to an anchor set in the coral of this reef, with a stern anchor laid out to E. Two anchors on the SE side of Dhoonidhu can be used in the same way.
