Guraidhoo island

Ultimate guide (April 2022)
Guraidhoo is an inhabited island not far from the main airport of the Maldives (South Male atoll). The beaches are mediocre - with rocky bottom and without palms. However, you can walk over the shallow water to Lhosfushi islet, - beautiful (but still with a rocky bottom), and with bikini sunbathing area. Shore and seabed: sand, stones. [edit]

Useful information [edit]

We recommend you to pay attention to other islands with inexpensive guesthouses: Maafushi and Gulhi. Both are also located on the South Male Atoll.

Also it makes sense to stay in the nearby Kandooma Island, or at least take a day trip. Boat there will cost you a maximum of US$50 for a round-trip. Though that hotel is more pricey than Guraidhoo, it is worth to spend at least a night like a millionaire.
