Informations about Mathiveri island

In the island, there is a medical centre which provides basic medical care. There is a school for local children, but it’s only up to 10th grade and for the next grades the children visit a school in Male. You can find 3 mosques, police station, and court located opposite the port there. There is also a diving centre, 4 restaurants and several cafés. The speciality of the island is a stingray beach where you can see many stingrays having a rest, and also some small sharks. Right next to the tourist bikini beach is a private sandbank (Mathiveri Finolhu) to which you get by swimming or walking – it depends on the water level. It’s the only sandbank you can visit for free whereas in the other islands you will pay for the entrance a lot of money.

We can manage you a visit in many luxury resorts during you stay at the Mathiveri islan
