There are two beaches on opposite sides of the island, one of which is a tourist bikini beach.

These include the famous crystal clear lagoon on the east of the island, and a breathtaking reef on the west. Part of Vaavu Atoll, Fulidhoo is famous for its local culture including dances performed by the islanders.
