- Comment: Should be merged into List of islands of the Maldives. I've already finished the merging. — Stevey7788 (talk) 22:20, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
This list ranks the top 10 islands of the Maldives by area. Some islands in the Maldives, although geographically one island, are divided into two administrative islands. For example, Gan and Maandhoo in Laamu Atoll. For such cases, this list ranks the entire (combined) area of the geographical island. Inland water bodies such as lakes and ponds are included in the total area.
|Rank||Island||Atoll||Total area (km2)||Total area (sq mi)||Population (2014)|
|10||Filladhoo-Dhapparu||Haa Alif||2.6||1.00||562 (Filladhoo)|
The combined area of Malé, Hulhulé and Hulhumalé exceeds 9 km2, which surpasses the area of the largest natural island in the Maldives. However, these three as a whole are considered to be a city, not an island.
