Descripción

Hauwandu, about 0.8 mile W of Ihavandu, lies at the SE end of a section of the barrier reef which extends about 9 miles NW, then 3 miles NE; of the eight islands and islets on this stretch of reef, Umbala and Hatefuri were inhabited in 1970.
Umbala, with a large village, lies about 0.5 mile NNW of Hauwandu, and is the principal island of the atoll; its natural harbor, formed between the island and the seaward side of the reef, provides good anchorage for numerous fishing craft.
Hatefuri, about 4 miles farther NW, has a fishing village on its NE side.

Matari, about 0.8 mile NW of Hatefuri, was used as a cemetery and had a flag staff and small temple on it; elsewhere it was well-wooded.

The islet of Kandufuri (Kankolufuri) lies on the above stretch of reef, near the NW point of Ihavandiffulu Atoll. Good radar returns have been reported from the islet at 15 miles.
