Maldives – Medhufushi

A much smaller island classed as a five star but I would rate it a good four star.

One buffet sand floor restaurant with an option of a la carte dining on the stilts over the sea close to the bar area. One side of the island can be very windy with the other side quite calm.

The island consists of beach villas and water villas some of the beach villas are not directly on the beach and some are interconnecting or two bedrooms. Water villas are lovely with a bed facing out to the sea, large veranda with a Maldivian swing and steps into the lagoon.

Great white beaches but there is a lot of broken coral due to the Tsunami.

Food quality is excellent lots if choice, one bar which is quite large and has different areas, sports (dart board, pool table), arrival and departures and an area where the disco and crab racing takes place once a week.

Water sports on offer include windsurfing and kite surfing, there is not a great amount of marine life as there is no house reef however there is still plenty to see and they do offer snorkelling trips out to other areas.

Transfers are by seaplane.
