Descrizione

The Powell Islands consists of two islands on a detached reef of their own with very deep waters. Etingili is the NW island and Alifuri is the SE island. Alifuri is inhabited.
It is reputedly the home of finest dhini builders in the country. The government-owned Alifushi Boat Yard continues the tradition, producing a modern version of the dhoni.
The channel between the Powell Islands and Maduni Faro (on the N Malosmadulu Atoll), about 3 miles S, is deep and free from known dangers.
