Since Maafushi is a local island, there are certain rules that guests should comply to. And one of them is that wearing bikini is not allowed in the public places of the island and alcoholic beverages are not availbale from the island. However we do not restrict any of our customers to take sunbathe or wear bikini in some parts of the beach where public accessibility is low. We also offer excursions to picnic islands, sand banks and even resorts where such restrictions do not apply.
Since the population of Maldives follow muslim customs we kindly ask all our customers respect such customs.
