Maafushi is a nice and interesting small Island. Сlean, warm sea.
Fabulous coral reef an easy 50m swim/paddle with great reef fish. Great food - great staff - comfortable (immaculate white coral sandy beach with sun beds). Very relaxed - shoes not required. Room kept clean and tidy. Good A/C (needed at night). King size bed, middle soft but comfy, mini bar, fridge, two wardrobes etc, a wood safe - thankfully no TV no telephone - bliss.... what else do you need? All the staff are wonderfully helpful and make the visit all the more enjoyable. Always someone there to help and they are all very approachable. My birthday happened whilst we were on holiday and they made a cake. It was made very special as the lights in the whole dining place are dimmed as the waiters sing and play the drums and circle the dining room before coming to your table with the cake. The snorkelling was average in most areas our excursions. BUT to see the bulk of the wildlife, going on the snorkelling outings is OUTSTANDING. We saw huge sea turtles, dolphins and manta rays which seemed to glide past about 1m from us! Its was brilliant. Although I myself did not personally scuba dive but this island is well known for being close to loads of great diving spots and the dive centre is amazingly equipped and the staff are very professional.
No swimming pool!?! you are never more than 100m from the beautiful clear clean Indian ocean...who needs a pool!
This holiday was truly paradise. I have nothing to complain about; the only thing that upset me had to return home.
