Ukulhas is one of the best islands in terms of natural beauty and the level of service among the Northern Ari Atoll islands.

Ukulhas looks like a pearl surrounded by clear lagoons and coral reefs, stretching about 0.25 square kilometers and being home to about 1,000 locals. Ukulhas is located about 70 kilometers east from Male, on the edge of Northern Ari Atoll. The eastern part of the island glows with a snow-white beach washed by turquoise waters from one of the most beautiful lagoons of the atoll.

Fish sold at $200/kilogram elsewhere is served as a staple food around here. In the lagoon, sometimes you can see schools of fish appearing as moving dark spots.

Locals, like most Maldivians, are very friendly and peaceful and gladly relate tales from their daily life and even go as far as teaching traditional crafts to visitors.
