Diffushi - Faadhippolhu Atoll

Position           05:22.875 N 073:38.733 E

Date                 1755 (UTC+5) Monday 14 March 2016

Distance run    48.0nm over the ground

 

A break out from a comfortable anchorage and 48nm south and east took us to Diffushi and a late arrival at a secure anchorage on a sandy shelf inside reef at the eastern edge of the Faadhippolhi Atoll.  At the NW pass into the atoll we passed the Huravalhi Reef Resort which their web site says that they will be open for guests in April 2016.  They looked to have a little way to go but here was definitely activity.

The Huravalhi Resort – more beach huts than Frinton and Walton together and a longer pier
