is an inhabited island in Vaavu atoll
, Maldives. There is a nice bikini beach, but without any tree's shadow. In addition the entire west end of the island is wild and quite beautiful. Big hotel can accommodate too many tourists during the peak dates, but you may take tours to the uninhabited island located nearby. Shore and seabed: sand, stones.  Find hotels in Thinadhoo
Hotels  Plumeria Boutique
is the only hotel on the island. Rooms' rates start from US$160 per night, which is rather expensive for the local island. And the high rise building is not what we want from the small island, especially in the Maldives.
However, a hotel claims to some luxury, though it's more like a Turkey - with jet skis and crowd on the beach struggling for sunbeds. In fact there is no luxury, no alcohol, and you'll get quite the same in ordinary cheap guest-houses located on the other islands. Find hotels in Thinadhoo

Now there are five (!) hotels in Thinadhoo island. So it's not a problem to get cheap fares. Few guesthouses are managed by the italians, and have tasty cafes.
The entire west side of the island is a bikini beach. So no problem with tree shadow, and a lot of space to avoid other tourists.
There are two uninhabited islands near Thinadu island. The first one has good snorkelling reef, while the second one has great beach with white sand. Daily tour costs $35 per person including the lunch.
As for now this is the best local island for me in Maldives! It always has some tourists, but not so overcrowded like Raasdu or Toddu.
