Is wearing swimwear inappropriate on Maafushi Island ?

My husband and I are considering staying on Maafushi Island for a week but are uncertain on as to whether we can swim at the beaches there or whether we can wear swimmers. we are both in our 50s and would not be wearing swimmers that are too revealing. I would wear a one piece and my husband, boardshorts.

Kuoni offer it, and by shopping around Kuoni holidays can always be found for less than on their website.

If you can forego the surfing, try Bandos, it's close to male, reasonably priced and possibly less of a marmite island than biya,,,

If you wear bikini/two pieces, that is inappropriate. So just bring one piece ;)

Hi

Bikini /two pieces fine for resort islands only on local islands without privates beaches is there a problem. I think this has already been pointed out
