Local Island Visit
Experience the real Maldives on this visit to a local island. You’ll be welcomed to the island with a fresh coconut drink before you set off to explore. The trip includes a visit to a local house, souvenir shops and a boatyard where traditional boat-building skills are still used today. Wander down sandy streets, watch fishermen bringing back their catches of the day, women playing ‘bashi’ and children on their way to school. Discover the laid-back pace of island life, where Maldivians live a simple, and often traditional, life a world away from the luxury resorts their country is famous for.
