Culture Break on Local Island of Guraidhoo

Get an insight into the 'real Maldives' with a short stay on the island of Guraidhoo in the South Male Atoll. In addition to enjoying time on beautiful beaches and snorkeling in the warm waters, you'll get to know many of the locals of this typical fishing island through meals with local families, traditional 'hedika' tea in a local cafe and plenty of time to wander on your own. A 30 minute walk around the island highlights locals going about their daily routine; carpenters at the small boat yard constructing traditional dhoni boats, locals drinking coffee in the many small cafes 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.
