Hello. We're planning a trip to the Maldives and will stay in one of the guest houses on a local island as opposed to a large hotel on a private island.
Can anyone advise on local islands that are less an hour (by speedboat) from Male? We'd ideally like somewhere that it's appropriate for women to wear bathing suits, offers a lot of day trips, has resorts within water taxi distance we can have dinner at, and has a beautiful beach. So far it looks like Kaani beach hotel on Maafushi fits the bill. Any other recommendation on great guest houses?
