Other Things to do in Rasdhoo
Bikini Beach and House Reef
The Bikini Beach stretches on the south-west edge of the island.
The whole island is sitting on a reef, in fact it is a part of it. While the corrals have suffered under
elevated water temperatures in the past years the waters surrounding the island are filled with marine life.
Snorkeling along the beach in the shallow water is great experience.
Perhaps the most breathtaking and amazing place to visit in the Maldives is
the nearby chain of uninhabited islands and sandbanks.
What is so unique about it? First of all, there is a lagoon, where you can
see a real 50 shades of blue with a beautiful reef in the center. A lot of fish live on the reef and you can
encounter them really close.
You can walk on water!
The second thing is the ability to walk through the water between these islands
and sandbanks. There is some magic in the sandbanks. The outer reef of the lagoon is rich in marine life, here you
can see sharks, stingrays, and turtles.
There are sometimes very strong a currents between Rasdhoo and the Madivaru
sandbank, so please refrain from trying to swim there.
Between Rasdhoo and Thoddoo there is an area where a groups of dolphins gathers in the
evenings. They are very friendly and follow the boat. Sometimes they swim so close that you could almost touch them.
Usually it is an evening or nightime activity. You do not need to be a professional
angler to catch a fish in the Maldives. It is enough to have reels and fishing lines. You can ask to cook caught
fish at your hotel (in most cases this is free of charge, but depends on the hotel).
It can be arranged either on the beach or on the sandbank. Based on our experience,
the beach is not the best place, because there is almost always someone nearby. For this reason, a sandbank will
be the better solution. After all, there will be no one else except you. The maximum level of privacy is guaranteed!
