Any Good ???

Hi all

Given the fact that the most important part of our holiday is snorkelling would any of these islands fit the bill ..

Reethi Beach

Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu

Velassaru

Olhuveli

Vilu Reef

Chaaya Reef Ellaidhoo

Filitheyo

Komandoo

any advice appreciated

DarrylPaula - please please look at Robinson Club - the reef is amazing. If you can wait I am going to Athuruga on 6th for a week to refresh my memory and will then be able to give direct comparison. The food is ace too.

Ellaidhoo snorkelling is better than Reethi's. No idea about the rest. Kom does sound good.

Thanks MF ;-)

We normally go AI but this time we are thinking HB because we are not big drinkers and normally don't eat lunch ,

Does anyone think this would be a mistake ?

Not a mistake. You don't want to be eating 3 times a day and not being able to fit the snorkelling in. .....

Unless you are aeeiously foodies ...
