Description

Cette grande île de 5km de long sur 3 km de large fut une base pour la marine et l'armée de l'air britanique de 1912 à 1974. Pour cette raison l'île est très bien équipée et la plupart de la population parle anglais.
L'île voisine de Viligili dispose d'une des plus belles plages de l'atoll. La plongée sous-marine permet de découvrire de nombreuses épaves et une faune pélagique importante.
Une digue permet de visiter l'une des quatre îles avoisinantes, où vivent de pêche et de cultures potagères, environ 20 000 maldiviens.
