Activities: Turtle snorkeling, Under water diving, Susnet  cruise, kayaking, Aqua Zumba, and many more.

Don't forget : Your atleast 50+ sunscreen, book your  activities on the very first day  to have planned days further.

Caution: If going for beach swimming, aware that your mobile phone is not with you, as the sea salted water will directly damage your phone. Don't go away to the defined area as all this areas have high tides which can be dangerous.

This is the best part of the resort you have private ocean view open washroom, a beautiful deck and a perfect place to be. The words will not be enough to specify the beauty of this villa.

Caution: If you are planning to swimming in your private water villa area be aware about the water levels and the marine creatures.

After shifting we had lunch in one of the restaurants of the resort and went for a walk on beach. After which we went to get ready for beach party, yes live music, white sand, dreamy nights and tour partner what else one need. It was nice experience. After dancing on couple of songs we relaxed on the deck area of the beach and watching clear sky from there is just as peaceful as fresh breezes. This is really a me time which will take you to another world.

In night you will find water level up , and the fishes swim under your water villa. This experience actually takes you to marine life which is mesmerizing and never to forget experience.

We had a great relaxing days, far from the world, in this island and visiting this place will never go wrong for sure.

Next day was the last day and we boarded our flight. You can get some soviners for your loved ones from airport of Male . We took a wooden photo frame, a candle....

Here I'll only suggest to just visit this place once in your lifetime. You will definitely thank me after this trip.

"ON EARTH. There is no heaven .......
But there are pieces of it."
One of them is definitely Maldives.
