Maldives > Uligamu


Uligan or Uligamu is one of the inhabited islands of Haa Alif Atoll and geographically part of the Ihavandhippolhu Atoll in the Maldives. It is an island-level administrative constituency governed by the Uligan Island Council.

Uligan is an outpost in the northwest Indian Ocean. It is the final stop most people make on the way from Thailand before they enter the Gulf of Aden or sail directly up the Red Sea. One of the major sources of income for the islanders is by selling souvenirs and ship provisions for passing yachtsmen.

An airport is planned to be built on this island, to serve Haa Alif Atoll.

Energy Production

Maldives made history with the implementation of the world’s first hybrid AC Coupled Renewable Energy Micro Grid in Uligan that will help reduce the dependence on fossil fuel and toxic emissions, which in turn will contribute to reduce the effects of climate change.
