Ultimate guide (August 2019)
is one of the southern atolls in the Maldives. There are just a few islands
, - happily, all with excellent beaches. So you won't see another island with tourists nearby. There are also not many people - both on the resort island, as well on the local islands. The distance from the international airport is considerable, so the road is hard. But transfer fares are comparable to those in the central atolls. Shore and seabed: sand, stones.
