Ukulhas Island is an inhabited island with about 1000 people. It measures just 230 m across and 1000 m in length, making it one of the smallest inhabited islands in the Maldives. It was the first island to introduce waste management and is still known for its cleanliness. There are two smaller mosques, which dutifully call to prayer. The local people are chilled and seem easier to get a smile from than on other islands. The west side is one long gorgeous bikini beach lined by shady trees and palms and the house reef is one of the better. With a bit of patience, you will be able to spot sharks and stingrays from the pier at night time.
