Located in its own atoll between Gaafu Dhaalu Atoll and Addu Atoll, the island of Fuvahmulah is the only one-island atoll in the Maldives. It has many distinctive features that make Fuvahmulah different from rest of the islands in Maldives. Fuvahmulah has a fish and a bird native to this island. That fish and bird are not found in any other part of the Maldives. It is also one of the few islands that have fresh water lakes.
