Fua Mulaku – Get Lost in the Blue

Fua Mulaku – Get Lost in the Blue

Fua Mulaku is located around the south of the Maldivian archipelago. It is thought of as the smallest of all atolls due to the place being made up of only one island. However, this single island is the largest of all islands in the Maldives and is a fertile ground where many crops are grown. Mangoes, oranges and pineapples not cultivated anywhere else on the archipelago are grown here. The sea surrounding the island is a special azure blue and the inviting sandy beaches are ideal for relaxing on and tasting some of the juicy tropical fruit grown on the island. Take along the cameras folks for this solitary island is indeed a sight to behold.
