An extensive range of guided excursions for those looking to explore what lies beyond the Resort. Meander through the narrow streets of capital city, Malé, and discover its markets, mosques and minarets. Or, take a trip to Huraa, a tiny local island that lies 20 minutes north of Gili Lankanfushi, to meet with some of its inhabitants and see their exquisite handcrafted products.

You can also try your hand (and luck) at local-style fishing or embark on a more serious deep sea fishing adventure. Island hopping trips include the chance to stop and snorkel as well.
