Maradhoo-Feydhoo (Dhivehi: މަރަދޫފޭދޫ) is a district of Addu City, in the Maldives. The district borders the district of Maradhoo to the north, as they both share the same natural island, and the district of Feydhoo to the south. After Addu City became a city, the Maradhoo-Feydhoo district got extended to include the previous administrative island and district of Feydhoo. The district has only 1 village known as Feydhooburi (translates to North Feydhoo). People still often call the village with the district's name.


Refugees of Feydhoo were transferred to Maradhoo during the British rule in addu atoll. Those people were placed in the houses of Maradhoo and later the land of maradhoo was given to these refugees. The area was later named as Maradhoo feydhoo and a separate island office was built. Though at that time it was believed that The people of Maradhoo did a big favour for refugees from Feydhoo Island, people of Maradhoo now believe that Mradhoo people did not favour to them, but did benefited from them in a way, that they accepted these poor people in their homes only for the sake of rashan that the people of Maradhoo feydhoo were getting from the Govt. If then Maradhoo people did not accept them in the land of Maradhoo, they could have got a better land in return,


The district has a size of 0.103 km2 of this, 0.25 are on the island of Maradhoo with a population of 1100, 0.673 are on the island of Feydhoo (5200), and 0.13 are on islands between them.
