Vilamendhoo by a mile for me.

The reefs are both excellent but Vila is a much prettier island with more beach, not completely all round the island but good stretches as opposed to Ellaidhoo which more or less has one bit of beach where everyone tends to gather.

We did not enjoy all of the food at Ellaidhoo....however it was 3 years ago to be fair. No other choice of restaurant unlike the newly refurbished Vila which has several alternatives albeit not part of AI.

Returning to Vila in September....the only other island we've done repeat visits to is Reethi Beach.

Another vote for Vilamendhoo. We looked at Eiladhoo but quickly realised Vila was the much better choice.

Have done both. We had a better holiday overall on Ellaidhoo, neither has a lot of beach space which would put me off returning to either. Agree Vilamendhoo is prettier and has less wave breaks..

To add we stayed in a WV on Ellaidhoo and went to Vila before the refurb. I think that Vila could possible feel less crowded now because although more rooms the added pool, restaurant and Wv's may spread guests out.
