is an inhabited island in Alifu Alifu
Atoll, Maldives. Bikini beach is not long, but very nice with picturesque palms hanging over water. Entry into the water is uncomfortable due to the broken corals. Snorkelling is great both on the house reef, as well as in the lagoon located to the west off the island. Shore and seabed: sand, stones. 
Hotels  Himandhoo Inn
is the only accomodation option on the island. The service and fares (room US$100 per night including taxes) are the same as on other local islands in the Maldives.
The hotel offers excellent ocean excursions (diving, fishing, sandbanks, swimming with whale sharks) at cheaper prices than on expensive island resorts. And the level of privacy will be much higher, as there are maximum six tourists on the island at a time. Find hotels in Himandhoo
