Hulhule island (Kaafu)

Characteristics

Description

Hulule, about 0.6 mile E of Funadhoo, bears some tall coconut palms; an airstrip runs the full length of the island and joins it to an islet close S. Airport buildings and a small village lie along the central part of the W side of Hulule.
The Malé International Airport is located on this island along with some official premises, e.g. Maldivian Bureau of Meteorology.

A channel, with a depth of 1.2m and subject to silting, gives access to small piers on the W side of Hulule; two large yellow mooring buoys were laid close WNW of the entrance.
Breakwaters extend N and S from the entrance to the 1.5m channel.

The airport control tower, a white building with a red roof, is a conspicuous landmark. A radio mast, marked by red obstruction lights, stands about 0.25 mile N of the airport control tower, E of the 1.2m entrance channel.

One hotel, the Hulhule Island Hotel, is located on the island. This hotel is more for transit passengers over-nighting as opposed to a true resort hotel.
