|Area||11 km2 (4.2 sq mi)|
The total land area of all islands in the group is less than 11 km², but the total area of the atolls measures about 370 km².
- Farquhar Atoll (with two larger and about eight smaller islets)
- Providence Atoll (with 2 islets, Providence Island and Cerf Island)
- St. Pierre Island
- Wizard Reef (submerged)
There are only two settlements. The main settlement is on Île du Nord (North Island) of Farquhar Atoll, and the other one on Providence Island of Providence Atoll. There are records of Maldivian mariner presence in the group from the 20th century, when a trading vessel from southern Maldives lost its course and reached Providence Atoll.
