The Island: Dhiffushi

Dhiffushi is home to a mesmerizing underwater world and its own house reef which is more than 10 km long housing colorful corals, breathtaking varieties of fishes, and other marine flora and fauna. 
Snorkeling in this paradise is absolutely amazing! You may even spot Turtles, Stingrays, and little sharks! 
This beautiful local island in the North Malé Atoll has a magical vibe and offers a lot of activities besides relaxing at the white sandy beaches and crystal clear blue waters. Diffushi is 0.95 km in length and 0,2 km wide. It was one of the first non-resort islands in the Maldives proving that you don’t need to pay for an expensive all-inclusive resort to have the amazing Maldives experience.
As it is the most eastern inhabited island of the Maldives, you are able to witness the sunrise first in the country. You will find one of the best diving sites close by.
Remember that this is a local island and therefore alcohol is prohibited and we want to respect their cultures and religion.

Diving – If you are interested in diving please let me know, as wonderful diving spots are just around the island and you are also able to learn how to dive.


Watch the locals everyday life

Fishing is a key part of local island life on the Maldives, and many islanders rely on it for their livelihood. Fishing boats can be seen departing from the islands early in the morning, and the catch of the day is often sold at the local fish market. In addition to fishing, some locals also engage in agriculture, growing crops such as coconuts, bananas, and papayas.


Explore the Island´s beauty

A unique aspect of the island beauty of the Maldives is the bioluminescent plankton that can be found in the waters around the islands. At night, these tiny organisms emit a blue-green glow, creating a magical and otherworldly atmosphere. Visitors to the local islands can take nighttime boat tours or swim in the bioluminescent waters for an unforgettable experienc
