Upon arrival at your guesthouse you will have time to settle in before exploring the island and familiarizing yourself with the layout or taking your first dip in the hotel pool.
Following breakfast head out on a snorkeling tour to discover the underwater world of the Maldives.
The afternoon is free for you to enjoy as you please. Relax on the bikini beach or for those feeling energetic participate in the various optional watersport activities on offer.

Optional diving trips can be organised for certified divers.
Today there is the opportunity to get active with 2 hours of watersports available. This includes rental of SUP, kayak and snorkeling equipment at a timing to suit you, just discuss with reception at the guesthouse but we would recommend late afternoon allowing you to enjoy sunset from the water.

Maafushi was once a very typical Maldivian local island but since the introduction of local tourism Maafushi is proving a popular destination for those wishing to experience the Maldives without paying resort prices. Maafushi is located in South Malé Atoll and is only 90 minutes away from Malé by ferry boat or 30 minutes by speedboat. There are two beaches on opposite sides of the island, one of which is a tourist bikini beach. With over 70 guesthouses some with 6 floors there are plenty of accommodation options to meet all budget needs. There are a variety of local cafes and guesthouse restaurants, some situated on the harbor and with water sport and excursion providers all eager for your business Maafushi provides the ideal destination to discover the Maldives on a budget and mix with other tourists.
Located 25 miles from the capital, Malé, Fulidhoo is located in the heart of the Maldives. Tiny in size and population, Fulidhoo is home to just 300 people who are excited to show the gems of their home island to guests. These include the famous crystal clear lagoon on the east of the island, and a breathtaking reef on the west. Part of Vaavu Atoll, Fulidhoo is famous for its local culture including dances performed by the islanders. Locals are proud of their long and remarkable history, and are always willing to share it with visitors. Vaavu Atoll is a microcosm for rich biodiversity and the local culture of Maldives, with exceptional reefs perfect for snorkeling, marine rich diving spots & fascinating Maldivian culture.
