Maafushi island

Ultimate guide (March 2018)
Maafushi is a budget island in Maldives, South Male atoll. Kaani beach is the main spot, where bikinis are allowed. There's also another good beach called White Shell nearby. Many years ago it was the first local island, which opened extremely cheap hotels. Beach and seabed: sand, coral chips. [edit]

Useful information [edit]

We recommend to pay attention to more secluded Fulhadhoo island, as it's much better than Maafushi. There are also two other local islands just nearby - Gulhi to the north and Guraidhoo to the south.
