Deserted island adventure in the Maldives
In the Maldives there are many unhabitated islands where, for a day, you may feel like Robinson Crusoe. Most maldivian resorts, offer day tours to deserted islands by private boat, letting to explore new beautiful places and do additional snorkelling.
The dhoni is approaching a deserted island, about 25 minutes from Thudufushi.This island was used as an heliport before starting the floatplane service to the resorts, but it is now unhabitated.
