Local Island Visit
Experience the ‘real’ Maldives by visiting one of the local neighbouring islands. On this trip you will see Maldivian local houses, local shops and a village mosque. Stroll down the sandy streets and take a peek of what island life is all about. See the women lounging in an undhoali, children going to school or, if you’re in time, see the fisherman bringing back their catch of the day. If you are interested in marine life conservation, visit the turtle rehabilitation centre on one of the local islands and learn how the local volunteers rescue, rehabilitate and reintroduce the turtles back in the wild. On a local island excursion you will discover the laid-back pace of an island life, where Maldivians live a simple and often traditional life, a world away from resort life.
