Maakurathu island

Ultimate guide (April 2022)
Maakurathu is a local island in Raa atoll, Maldives. The beach is superb - with white sand, palms, being quite comparable to the coast of luxury island resorts. There is a bikini area with parasols and sunbeds (each tourist has its own sunbed), as well as a long green coast. Most of time you will be the only one on the beach. In addition, there is a beautiful uninhabited Kudakurathu island nearby, reachable by boat as a daily tour. Shore and seabed: sand. [edit]
This beach ranks #2 of the "Best islands in Raa Atoll"
