It was time to say bye to Holiday Inn and move to another resort, Adaaran Select Hudhuranfushi Via Maafushi & Hulhumale.Maafushi is one of the most famous Public Island in the South Male Atoll. With lots of Guest Houses/ Hotels, eateries and a "Bikini Beach", Bikini beach is a rarity on Public Islands in Maldives. Maldives, being an Islamic country poses many restrictions on clothing.Maafushi is heaven for Backpackers & Budget travelers, because it offers reasonably priced food and accommodation.Many Operators here offer variety of excursions at very reasonable prices. When I say reasonable, it is reasonable from Maldives's standards. Don't compare it from anywhere else. The excursions prices starts from 20-25 USD and can go upto 165 USD. This 165 USD excursion gives you a chance of living the luxury resort life for a day ( mostly lunch inclusive). Mind you, only day and not the night.If you are looking for budget trip in Maldives, Maafushi is the place. And from Mumbai you can have a 4 day trip to Maldives in about Rs 35,000.
