Fuvahmulah, Maldives-Holiday

Mysterious “beach cusps” observed in Fuvahmulah

I was baffled and amazed to see the picture uploaded by Nasih Thaath in Fuvahmulah online that unfolds the mysterious beach formation in the northern beach -thoondu- of our island. People say everything about Fuvahmulah is unique and mysterious. That i s true. Thoondu is a phenomenal place.   It is the most breathtaking and mysterious beach in the Maldivian archipelago. Twenty years ago, the white sandy beach was so vast that it stretched hundreds of meters across  the northern tip of our island, creating natural phenomenon that puzzled and attracted thousands of people. The edge of the sand adjoining the beach was so slanted that we used the base of the coconut leaf (beedi) to glide down the sand. It was skiing. Hold on! Lets look at the mysterious beach formation in Thaath’s picture. Some pictures similar to these have gone viral on the internet in other parts of  the…

Fuvahmulah Trip – The natural beauty of the Maldives

It was long back until last month when I last went to Fuvahmulah in 2009 on a vacation. That previous trip wasn’t that good as we had to stay at home most of the time which was specially organized for the circumcision of my son. We stayed for 16 days, could hardly visit to any friends or go anywhere but could only make my motor bike license which made that trip worth having gone. This time it was for a short holiday of 10 days, we enjoyed a lot though. The shortest holiday but the awesomest, I must say. I met many of my schoolmates and classmates plus my friends and childhood friends which was the best part of our vacation. It seemed that everything was special about the island trip that I made from 29th May till 10th June, felt like home unlike other times and willing to go…

The most vulnerable island of sinking nation – Fuvahmulah

Fuvahmulah is comparatively one of the largest islands in Maldives. Similarly, the environmental threats facing this island are comparatively large too. Recently, the troubles has taken a new twist with reports of severe erosion filling the big headlines in newspapers and with government officials having forced to answer questions relating to the huge devastation facing this island with a vibrant population of about 10,000. No matter how critical the condition is, how urgent it is to make a start now, no real action is seen in progress as yet, but the usual spin and constant lies of relevant authorities. These incidents did not start instantaneously. It was predicted much earlier and is now predicted to see worse circumstances in the coming days. During September 2007, a big portion of soil adjacent to the lagoon broke off from the mainland and collapsed into the sea from four different areas near the…
