The largest economy in haa alif atoll


Opened on 14 May 1969, Ihavandhoo School serves as the public school in the island, providing primary to higher secondary education. Initially, the school was named "Ihavandhoo Madharusaa", when it was owned by the local people. The school started offering secondary grades in 1998, preparing students for international GCE Ordinary Level examinations, with A-Level grades in 2003. The school became a government owned school in 2000.


A harbour has been dug to solve the problem of getting into the island. An area of 13,150 m2 (141,500 sq ft) was dredged in 1992. The harbour was repaired in 2000. This harbour plays an important role in the economy of the island especially the fact that majority of the islands working population are fishermen who had to use the harbour every day.

On 11 November 2010, the government started a project costing US$4,490,678.94 to build a new harbour. The project is yet to be finished. According to MTCC, the contractor of the project, as of 7 September 2011, 36% of breakwater construction has been completed. This new harbour has an area of 35,945 m2 (386,910 sq ft).
