A unique setting. In comparison to most of the islands on the peripheral reef system, the island of Faathiyehuttaa has beach all around the island.


The island is located to the immediate west of Fares Maathodaa on the same reef system. The island has a rocky shoreline all around and exposed beach rock.


This island is our Coral Reef laboratory and the reef system around the island has good potential as a coral reef research habitat. The island has large potential for the study of beach dynamics and beach morphology.
