Hanikandu Faro (S Malosmadulu)

Characteristics

Description

Hanikando Faro, at the NW extremity of the atoll, is separated from Kari Faro, about 0,8 NM S, by an opening into the lagoon. Dukandu, an island, lies in the middle of the inner end of the opening.

Kari Faro is a reef enclosing a lagoon, with the islets of Iwafuri and Fahris on its S side.

From the opening between Hanikandu Faro and Medu Faro, about 1.3 miles NE, a deep channel leads E to the NE side of the atoll.

Islets and reefs on the S side of the channel extend E from Hanikandu Faro.
Sudaroa, about 6 miles farther E, lies at the E entrance of the channel.
Kumadu lies 1 mile E of Sudaroa.

The N part of South Malosmadulu Atoll is triangular in shape. There are numerous openings into the main lagoon on the N and E sides of the atoll.

There is a wide opening into the lagoon between Olugeri, close W of Hitadu, and Boduffnur, about 2.8 miles farther W. A rock shoal, with a depth of 12.8m, lies in the opening.
