The Ambitious Project That Created The Artificial Island Of Hulhumale

Many people dream of going to Maldives with its white sandy beaches and magnificent underwater world. However, there are secrets underneath the water that a visitor must never miss – the underwater sculpture Maldives that have become a safe breeding ground for marine life. Visitors can reach the underwater sculptures by boat and snorkel above the works of art.

Hulhumale is a reclaimed island that is located 8 kilometres from the northeast coast of Male, the capital of Maldives. The artificial island is the most ambitious and biggest development that was made in the city. The reason why the new island was established was to meet the needs of future housing and industrialization and relieve the congestion that is faced by Maldives.

The plan for Hulhumale is to centralize the small island nation’s population and at the same time provide a safe home for migrants from the other islands. Since the development broke ground in 1997 with a total area of 432 hectares, the city has become the home to more than 40,000 residents. The island also boasts of a multitude of mega projects the likes of which have never been seen in Maldives.

Through the management of government-owned Housing Development Corporation (HDC), Hulhumale is on its way to becoming a sustainable city that can foster creative entrepreneurship for the country’s dominant youth population. Hulhumale is prepared to offer modern solutions that will solve any social challenges.

Because the city is connected to an international airport, it won’t be long before the country sees investments that will pave the way for economic resilience for a country that is highly dependent on successful tourism products. It is expected that Hulhumale will transform Maldives from a purely luxury tourist destination to a diversified and prosperous place with new economic possibilities.

There are many tourist destinations all over the world where people can experience white sandy beaches but nothing compares to the unique beauty of underwater sculptures Maldives, an underwater beauty that can be found underneath the waters. You can make early reservations to enjoy both nature and art or dine in gourmet cuisine by the light the moon and nature as the perfect backdrop.
