Vilamendhoo

This small island in the South Ari Atoll, 900m long and 250m wide, offers 1.5km of white beach and an excellent house reef very close to shore, so fantastic snorkelling and diving is on your doorstep.  

 

There are villas on the beach or over-water, and a choice of buffet or a la carte restaurants. The island caters well for both families and couples, with a family pool and playground for kids while other facilities, including another pool and some bars and restaurants, are for adults only.
