Excellent snorkeling,tight budget!

Hello,

I have found some budget resorts with good snorkeling,like Angaga ,and viladhu,but the seaplane tickets are so expensive that it's not budget anymore!

Is there any closer resorts with excellent snorkeling (from the resort) that are closer to Male int.airport?(Biyadhoo is fully booked)

Please help,we need to book soon since we r going end of November.

Thank you very much

you are going to have a hard time on such short notice. first of all .. nothing is going to beat the snorkeling in south ari atoll .. angaga, vilamendhoo, maayafushi are your best bets,

the only one with decent snorkeling close to male and besides biya that comes to mind is makunudu. give them a try ?

Eriyadu and Makunudu, both in the North Male Atoll.

Weird question I know but crucial to me really!

Is there cockroaches everywhere or just the resorts I am picking!

Was just reading about Vilamendhoo and it seems there s quiet a bit of them....

That's my nightmare unfortunately!

What can I do now?
