Maafushi is one of the most renowned islands within the Maldives, and was even proposed as becoming a capital of one of the provinces. It is truly a fascinating place.
Best Time to Visit
If you’re looking for the best rates, then you should visit during the wet season from May through to November where tourist traffic tends to be a little low. If you wish to experience the nation’s culture then early October, during the Eid celebrations, is an ideal time to visit.
Where to Stay
As you may have expected there’s many a luxury resort in Maldives to be found in the nearby vicinity, such as Anantara Dhigu Maldives Resort. Given that this island is one of the bigger ones in the Maldives, you can even find more affordable options.
Exploring the Island
You don’t require a vehicle to traverse the island since it’s not that large. There are two beaches to explore, a public one and a westerners’ beach. The strict Muslim restrictions aren’t applied to the latter so visitors can wear their bikinis without concern.
Visit a Picnic Island
Although this involves travelling outside of Maafushi, this is truly an essential experience that allows you and your buddies to enjoy a picnic at an island completely to yourselves. These are easily organised by entities such as the Maafushi Dive Club.
