Diffushi vs Huraa or other local islands

Hi all, we are planning a short 3-day trip to Maldives after 2 weeks in Sri Lanka. We would like to stay in a local island and we are doubting between Diffhushi or any other island between Male and Diffushi (like for example Huraa).

We are in a low budget, but as we will only stay 3 days in Maldives we are thinking that the fast ferry would be a better option than the public one. How can we check prices and schedule for these ferries? Do they stop only in Dhiffushi? Or we could stop in the islands in between like the local ferry? Our plan is to relax in the beach, so we would like an island with bikini beah. And also to do some snorkeling tour and maybe try to see sharks.

Would a good idea be to stay in Huraa (or some other similar island) or better go to Diffushi, even if fast ferry would be more expensive because it's further away? Is it worth it?

Thanks in advance!

Sara

Hi, I've been to many local islands but these two. The best way to book a speedboat or any kind of transport is to contact your accomodation. They know better cause there is usually minimum info about transport companies online.

I'll queue thdm from the most recommended: Feridhoo, Fulhadhoo, Fodhdhoo, Omadhoo, Hangaameedhoo, Bodufolhoodhoo, Mathiveri, Fehendhoo, Gulhi, Maalhos, Guraidhoo, Himandhoo. Perhaps Gulhi is for you, it's very close to Male.
