What you will win

OVERVIEW

Our cultural breaks are designed to either work as a self-contained budget Maldives experience or as a start to an independent stay in the archipelago be it on a local island or resort.


Guraidhoo also in South Male Atoll, it is a typical fishing island with about 2,300 inhabitants, with sandy roads and palm trees. A 30 minute walk around the island highlights locals going about their daily routine; carpenters at the small boat yard traditionally constructing typical dhoni boats, locals drinking coffee in the many small coffee shops and children playing simple games in the street. Sit and watch the sunset alongside the locals on the public beach or kick back in a traditional seat called a ‘jolie’ and watch the world slowly pass by. Guraidhoo is a regular stopping point for safari boats and local shops have quickly adapted by offering all kind of souvenirs and a handful of local restaurants and coffee shops.  Guraidhoo offers an insight in to the ‘real Maldives’. 


ITINERARY

Day One:

Arrive Male International Airport where you will be greeted by our representative who will assist you with your public ferry transfer to your local island in South Male Atoll. The ferry operates every day excluding FRIDAY and leaves Male in the afternoon taking 120 minutes to journey across the Indian Ocean to Guraidhoo. You can choose to sit up top and view the beauty of the many Maldives islands that pass you by, keeping your eyes open for dolphins or sit inside, amongst the fruit and vegetables, mattresses and electrical items that have been purchased that day and chat with the locals.

Upon arrival at your guesthouse you will have time to settle in before having a guided tour of the island and experiencing traditional ‘hedika’ - Maldivian savoury and sweet short eats served with black tea at a local cafe. 


Day Two:

A traditional Maldives breakfast is taken at the home of a local family before being taken out by boat to enjoy a 90 minute guided snorkeling trip to nearby reefs to discover the underwater world of the Maldives.  The afternoon is yours to relax or for those feeling a little more energetic take advantage of the many water sport options available including snorkeling, surfing in season and diving. Dinner this evening will be taken Robinson Crusoe style on the beach (subject to weather conditions).


Day Three:

Following breakfast you will be taken by speedboat to typical Maldives sandbank. Here you have the opportunity to swim, snorkel or just lie back and relax before eating a picnic lunch and then enjoying more of the same!  This evening enjoy dinner with a local family at their home allowing you to true access to Maldives local life.


Day Four:

Following an early breakfast you will transfer by early morning public ferry to Male and on to Male International Airport or your onward destination.
