Maldives, a paradise opened for everybody

by Dushicheva Oksana  from Russia

White sandy beaches, azure water, coconut palms are always associated with Maldives. And Maldives are always associated with huge expenses. Hah! But no more! Do you want to go there and spend not more than 2000$ per two weeks? Thoddoo Island is welcome!

About 1,5 hours by speed boat from Male airport and you’re there.

The weather is always ideal: 29-30 day time and about 26-27 – at night. Locals say, that it’s same all over the year, just in June and July can be raining in morning time. The owners of Guest Houses will meet you on the pier and drive to by scooters – the biggest and fastest transport. Through small streets with small houses you reach the place. Guesthouses are only about 4-15 rooms. The owners will do everything for your comfortable stay!

Every morning they will serve for you two breakfasts in one – continental & Maldivian with chapattis, beans and fruit! Then you are full and ready to go! Beach is about 10-15 minutes from all the hotels (there are no guesthouses on the beach). Your way will be through the tropical farm! You can see how the papayas, bananas, some other fruit and vegetables are growing, how people love there plants, how carefully they water twice a day and harvest. Sometimes they give you the fruit just for your happy smile. Maldivian – are so kind and polite people! Their hearts are so full of love!

The beach is not huge but like a dream! Only white sand, clear unbelievable water, not strong current and waves (good for children). You can sunbathing under hot rays of sun and when enough – continue enjoying the time in the natural shadow under the palms. Magic is that the sand never hot – even in the middle of the day! Sunbeds are very comfortable and free of charge.

There is a reef, so you can do wonderful snorkeling, watching hundreds of different fishes. But the place is so calm, that you can’t surf there.

And you’re not allowed to go in bikini to other beaches due to Muslim religion on Maldives.

If you want to eat out of the guesthouse, there are couple restaurants with very tasty food. Prices are not high. But you should know, that alcohol is forbidden on Maldives (they serve it only in resorts).

If you want to find some fruit, you can buy it in the small shops. You can find there also chocolate, sweets, ice-cream (it’s a puzzle – 70% of food in the shops are some kind of candies. So how the people are so thin there???). Coconut sticks – are the candies they do by themselves! It looks like 15cm stick covered with palm leaf – very tasty I should say!

About 30% of the island area is ranked by small buildings. We found mosque, school, football field, volleyball place and several small streets full of local life. It was such a pleasure to walk through them and see how people live. They don’t need much! Just a modest single-floor house, painted in light colors, a lot of children, several banana or papaya palms, a cat, bicycle or scooter and sun all over the day. If you like to see the sunset, the other beach is welcome. As in every magnificent place, sunsets are every day spellbinding and different – the right place and time to dream, sitting on the stones and hugging each other! My dreams were about next visit to this small paradise.

Finally good news about Maldivian fauna: you will small geckos, beautiful birds, flying foxes, millions of ants; nothing dangerous, even there are no dogs, because it’s also forbidden.

Some scats and small sharks you can see at night near the shore. But I’ve seen them only on another island – and that is another story! This experience is only about Thoddoo. Maldivian Islands are about 1192 – so each of them has each own character and secrets! I wish Maldivian Paradise to everybody!!!
