Next March we are planning to go to the Maldives from Manchester UK
Are budget is under £6k and snorkelling from the beach or jetty (been to marsa Alam) and very good diving (he's been on Maldives livaboard) are the most important things.
Not bothered about spa or meals on the beach or golf and would prefer NO butler service.
We will be very active so AI suits us.
Meeru looked good but boat to reef - I get sea sick - Husband is the diver and he is fine on a boat.
Kuredu & Bandos are the best so far.
Any comments or other ideas would be a great help.
Also if you do a seaplane the luggage allowance is only 20kg but 30kg on main flight - how does that work? Divers on holiday take everything.
