  • Especially sailed to the island on a boat, succumbing to the temptations of our guide. The island is really big and beautiful, all 13,800 and lots of various services. But personally we don't follow it sailed to the Maldives. Want to comfort-for this purpose there are Turkey, Egypt, the Bahamas or Miami. The reef completely empty next to this island. Then there is marine life there, but an order of magnitude smaller than say next to our Kalaafaanu Retreat, where we rested for a week. There really is a wild fantasy fishing paradise! So, if you want to Mafuši in the South Ari Atoll-go here.

  • Sailed here on a boat from the island, which is located in the middle of the Southern atoll. Succumbed to our advertising guide. Really big and beautiful island. Very much all kinds of marine life. It was especially remembered swimming with a whale shark, but is very annoyed by the abundance of people especially on the beach screaming little children. It was felt that we got to the beach at Maafushi. Still I prefer wild and deserted Islands. Animals next to them no less, but people almost never happens. Fly over 8000 km to get to Antalya or Sochi is not for me.
