budget trip to dive house reef and enjoy culture of islands

We are planning a trip for 10days in the beginning of January. We are not interested in resort type experience and prefer a quiet friendly guesthouse. We are hoping to stay somewhere where there are some exploring options as we like to bike around, see beaches and explore small town, try independent small local restaurants, meet people, see how the islands are in everyday life. We love to dive, but don't always love to spend all day on boats. We especially like areas where we can do house reef repeat times. Are there any destinations that meet these preferences? any ideas would be welcomed! thankyou so much

If you want somewhere less busy Keyodhoo is worth investigating

Nasih,

Another advertising post; another breach of forum rules.

This forum exists for travellers to share their knowledge and experience, not for your to push your hotel in any thread you fancy.

Thank you.
