Faafu atoll

Ultimate guide (August 2023)
Faafu 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. [edit]
This island ranks #5 of the "Best atolls in the Maldives"

Hotels [edit]

Filitheyo Island Resort is the only island resort in the atoll of Faafu. As for inhabited islands, the choice of accomodation options is great, while the fares are below the average standards in the Maldives. And after all of that, there are bikini beaches everywhere, so you won't have to take expensive excursions.
