The island nation with its pristine beaches and vast marine life is known as one of the luxurious destination. For us it was one of our must see destinations. So finally we went to fulfill this wish of ours on a moderate budget.

Day 1

We reached Male at night so we decided to spend the night in Male city. The airport is on the island adjacent to Male city. Tickets for the 15 mins ferry to Male city can be purchased at the harbor outside the airport for ~ $3.

Day 2

Since we were supposed to board the speedboat to our resort in the afternoon, we explored a bit of Male city. Some of the attractions in the city are the artificial beach, Friday mosque, Tsunami monument and museum. Male is a small island. Exploration on foot can be done in around 3 hours.

We went back to airport for our speedboat to Fun Island Resort. Fun Island resort is located on Guraidhoo around 45 mins (by boat) away from Male.

The resort offers a lot of activities like diving, snorkeling, parasailing, sunset cruise, island hopping, dolphin safari, fishing competition etc. We opted for dolphin safari and fishing competition. Apart from all these activities it has a beautiful beach to sit back and relax.

Most of the resorts in Maldives have gala dinner (charges extra) for Christmas eve and New Year's eve. For the occasion, the resort was beautifully decorated and had various cuisines to choose from.

Day 3

Started the day with sunrise, clear blue sky and crystal clear water. Then we took a boat to Robinson Island which was a complimentary tour from resort.

After a couple of hours well spent in Robinson, we came back to our resort. Rest of the day we spent in the resort itself.
