There you may spend the entire day swimming and snorkelling around the island; finish up with a marvellous BBQ right on the beach.

An excursion to one of the inhabited islands of Maldives is ideal for a dose of culture. There you will see how the fishermen are at work while the children play on the beach. Sit down for a chat with the locals, watch the women at work and understand the traditions and culture observed by these humble folk.
