Muli (Dhivehi: މުލި) is the capital of Meemu Atoll, and the proposed capital for the Medhu Province of the Maldives in the Indian Ocean.

History[edit]

Muli was one of the ten Maldivian islands worst affected by the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami.[2]

Geography[edit]

The island is 138.83 km (86 mi; 75 nmi) south of the country's capital, Malé.[3] The land area of the island was described as being 37.4 ha (92 acres) in 2018.[4] However, in 2017, a land reclamation scheme was completed, which increased the land area by 40 ha (99 acres),[5] but which may not be reflected by the latter-dated figure.
