only about 20 mins by boat.. great trip for about 2 hours.. learn about maldivian history, visit utheemu palace.. the home of the first national hero of maldives. see how life is on an inhabited island... unlike some other places... the residents dont put an a show when tourists arrive..they just along with their daily life which keeps this place...
