best budget island

Like everyone, we want the best on a budget! We've been looking at All-Inclusive, the Garden bungalow on special in Kuredu is about AU$200/nt, we'd prefer beach front but it's $340.. Are there any other resorts we should look at considering our budget? To go all that way (from Australia, but it's long flight stopover etc), that stepping out of your room to the beach sounds lovely! :-)

Depending on when you are going and what you are looking for Angaga might fit in your budget.

Can I suggest you take a look at the top FAQ on the right hand side. It lists things for posters to consider and which will help us help them.

Eriyadu in the North Male atoll might also fit.

The islands which are at the budget end include and within reasonable distance of Male airport would include:

Biyadhoo - rooms in blocks but only greenery between you and beach a couple of feet.

Filaholhi - some rooms but not all in blocks only FB

Summer island Village - Majority of villas on beach but a couple in blocks,

then Eriyadu which i thought was a similar price to Vilamendhoo which is $285 fb per room you can upgrade but you have to add $400 seaplane return pp.

Was there any other reason for looking at Kuredu other than the price , as this is one of the larger islands and for some its a bit more commercialised, so is there any other criteria you want other than price and AI and does the quote include the sea plane costs.
