Dhigurah is located 96 km southeast of Male in southern Ari Atoll. The length of the island is almost 4 km, and the width (in the widest part) is 300 m. The island narrows in a southward direction and ends with a sandbank. In the local language, Dhivehi, the name of the island can be directly translated into ‘Long Island’ and has consequently the longest beach of the atoll (and in one of the longest in Maldives). Its surrounding waters are known to be a famous whale shark area.
