Keyodhoo Maldives Budget Holiday With Day Trips
10 MAY 2017
Maldives Finest is pleased to introduce an amazing budget holiday package that includes full day trips and Half Board meals, starts at $58 per night. No one wants to stay indoors when you are in the Maldives and this package allows you enjoy everyday.
Keyodhoo in Vaavu Atoll is home to some 803 locals. Many young men who used to work in resorts before have now moved back to their home island, to work in booming guest house business. Keyodhoo used to be a popular fishing village. Today there are more guests fishing than the local fishermen.
Despite small population the island is pretty much occupied by the houses and public infrastructure such as school, island office and mosque. Don't be surprised to find a school in such a small island, there are even smaller islands that have it. I have seen one with 200 registered locals of which less than half actually lives on the island. Even that island had a school and exactly 6 students, that was some years back. To cut long story short, Keyodhoo is a small island with a small population that is spread all over the island except few empty areas at the beach. Every island in Maldives have a football ground, Keyodhoo is no exception.
There is a beautiful beach at one side of Keyodhoo. But, this is nothing compared to sandbanks and uninhabited islands. There are two sandbanks in easy travel distance. Most of the uninhabited islands have been leased to different individuals who look after the island while charging a small entrance fee from guests visiting the island. The only free to visit uninhabited island near Keyodhoo is called Bodumohoraa and it’s a beautiful one.

We highly recommend that to use this service for your convenience, otherwise it might be difficult to find the exact speedboat you need to board. There are many speedboats travelling to different islands. If you have the wrong boat coming back to Male' the same day is almost impossible, unless you are extremely lucky.
