It was on a holiday that I took my time to have a vacation on one of Maldives’ islands. That Island is called Maafushi.
It took more or less of an hour from Male to Maafushi, that is, if you took a speedboat ride. It will take you hours if you opt for a regular boat ride. It costs $10 for the speedboat.
After that bumpy, or rather “wavey” ride, There it was. There’s even a sign to make sure you don’t end up on the wrong island.
Once I’m there, I went to the guesthouse where I made my reservation. It was on the other side of the Island. But it wasn’t that far. According to my guide, the very accommodating representative of Velana Hotels, the island is like 50 hectares. It will only take you around 10 minutes before you reach the other side.
On my way to the Guesthouse, being an artist, some of the shops caught my eye because of their creativity.
I came two hours early of my check-in but they allowed me to went in in-advance without any additional fees. Cool right?
Once you enter, you’ll notice that there’s a dining area for the guest that also serves as a restaurant for the non-guests. They call it the Kaalamaa Restaurant.
I left my things in my room and went outside to take some photos. I went first to the balcony upstairs which is above the resto and then outside where they have these seats for guests to relax and have a great dining experience beside the beach.
Then I went beyond where I stay in and roam around the island. The island may seem to have issues on garbage disposal so I kinda took most of the photos in macro.
Okay guys, I’ll end it here. i hope you enjoyed the pics. 🙂
