18 Best beaches in South Male Atoll

Ultimate guide 2017


Maldives, Anantara Dhigu Maldives beach
Anantara Dhigu Maldives is a five-stars beach resort in the Maldives. This place is unique by Maldivian standards, as it's not a single island, but a few islets of different size. Thus there is a shallow lagoon without waves, as well as several tiny islands for day trips. Refined luxury is everywhere. That is fine on the one hand, but you loose a chance to feel the atmosphere of the real Maldives. / read more » /

Maldives, Taj Exotica beach
Taj Exotica is a beachfront resort - the closest to the International Airport of Maldives. This is real Maldives from a postcard. Recent years the east of the island was spiked with stones to prevent coastal erosion, but western beaches are still good. There is no reef around the island, so the snorkeling is bad. Also there is no enough seclusion due to the airport, as airplanes often fly over your head. / read more » /

Maldives, Holiday Inn Kandooma beach
Holiday Inn Kandooma is an island resort in South Male Atoll, Maldives. Beach with palm trees is very good and looks more like the Caribbean. Local Guraidhoo island located nearby spoils the view from the good beach, while other side of the island has rocky coast and is not suitable for swimming. Snorkeling is also mediocre on that rocky side. / read more » /

Velassaru Maldives beach
Velassaru Maldives is a five-stars island resort in the Maldives, - close to the airport. In general, this is a perfect tropical paradise.

As for the reef snorkelling, it is also not the best. / read more » /

Maldives, Jumeirah Vittaveli beach
Jumeirah Vittaveli is a luxury island resort on Bolifushi island, Maldives. Every bungalow has its own perfect beach.

The snorkelling on the reef is good, but again you should be aware of currents. / read more » /

Maldives, Adaaran Club Rannalhi beach, aerial view
Adaaran Club Rannalhi is a small island resort not far from the Maldives International Airport. This is a good example of the "well done" island: a lot of trees and palms ashore, white sand everywhere and complete seclusion on the island lost in the ocean. Great snorkeling is the key feature of this place. As for the pure beach vacation it's not the best, as the water edge is full of coral chips. / read more » /

Maldives, Fun Island Resort beach

The north end of the island has a great sand bar, while the west coast is suitable to relax on the beach under the shade of trees. There is also a house reef with good snorkelling. While the hotel is quite basic, the beach itself is so good, that there's no sense to take tours to uninhabited islands. However, coastal vegetation is poor, and the trash can often be met ashore, - but this is quite typical for the Maldives. / read more » /
