The Maldives is a long and narrow country formed by 26 natural atolls. Some atolls are in the form of a number of islands by time and in the form of isolated reefs, which could be classified as smaller atoll formations. All land above the surface in the Maldives is of coralline origin. The atolls of the Maldives form a quite regular chain and, especially in the northern and central atolls, an arrayed structure is apparent. There are broad and deep channels in between some atolls. The origin of the word atoll itself is in the language of the Maldives. ‘Atoll’ (from Dhivehi ‘atholhu’) is now used in many languages worldwide.

Traditionally, Maldivians call the atolls ending in ‘-madulu’ or ‘-mathi’ by their name without adding the word ‘Atoll’ at the end. For example, it is correct to write simply Kolhumadulhu, without adding the word ‘Atholhu’ at the end. This is also the case in the atoll known as Faadhippolhu.
