Is Milaidhoo a man-made island?

Feb 06, 2022 Milaidhoo Moments

We Love Nature

Many visitors to the Maldives often wonder about these islands scattered in the Indian Ocean and how they came into existence.

At Milaidhoo, we love nature and being located in the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, which includes the world-famous Manta Ray feeding site in Hanifaru Bay, we treasure the natural beauty of our genuine, tropical island paradise. Other resort island might look and feel a bit different.

What is the difference between a man-made and a natural island?

The island resort of Milaidhoo is typical of the Maldives. It began as a sand bank formed by the rhythm of the tides over eons, washing sand onto a reef base. Passing birds dropped seeds which grew into plants and coconuts floated ashore and took root, gradually creating a stable, tropical island. What is the difference between a man-made and a natural island?

An artificial island can be created by filling a shallow lagoon with sand. An island formed by nature looks much different as plants and trees as well as the reefs around it are natural, not cultivated.

Is Milaidhoo a man-made island?

No, Milaidhoo is totally created by nature. The island has been evolving for thousands of years, changing its shape as the tides washed more sand ashore.

When Milaidhoo was being developed as a resort, the developers made sure to retain the natural beauty and ambience of the island. Where possible, trees and plants were left in place. This is why you might see a tree growing through a villa deck. You will also find the reef has been preserved, as its protection was paramount during the resort’s construction.

The lush greenery and vibrant house reef surrounding the island are natural and could hardly be achieved by man’s re-modelling of nature.
