You can stay on the local Island beaches and even snorkel from the shores. On local islands, bikinis aren't really worn, nor do men walk around with only shorts. Living among the local Muslim population you generally wouldn't strut around half-naked as you would in a resort village. This is all part of the experience and shouldn't be seen as a drawback - there is plenty of opportunity to soak up the sun and pose for those fantastic holiday beachwear photos on the uninhabited islands.
The island council will also permit a special area in the beach for tourists where they can freely swim in bikini..
In local islands following dress are minimum requirements:-
Men : T-Shirt and shorts
Women: T-Shirt, blouse, Shirt and skirt or shorts which hides down to ankle.
In uninhabited islands however , tourists are free to wear bikinis and all types of swimwear.
I stayed at Azoush for 5 nights and I had a great time. Arriving at the island I felt very welcomed. The staff and also the other inhabitants of the island were really kind and friendly. The food was very good. My room was clean; there were some problems with the power but at last everything worked out well. Azoush is not a resort but if you walk to the beach through the jungle (it takes about 15-20 minutes) and see the beautiful beach and the ocean you forget about any missing of luxury. I was also taken to the uninhabited island for free on my last day which was a nice experience. If you decide to stay at Azoush notice that you have to pay your bill with cash and the only possibility to get cash is by using an ATM at Male. I've been there with my credit card but luckily I could meet one of the guest family at the capital to take me to an ATM and to hand him over the money.
Finally I would definitely come back to Azoush again! Thank you Mohamed for the great experience.
Azoush Guesthouse is a slice of paradise. I spent 5 days there on the beautiful island of Fulhadhoo. The guesthouse is clean and colourfull and the staff is just amazing. Forget about the resorts. Here you get to live on a local island, meet the friendly locals and get to know their culture and taste their food. From the island, the guesthouse provides day-trips. I especially enjoyed octopus-hunting with a local fisherman, the trip to an uninhabited island and all the snorkeling around the island. The island itself is so beautiful, and everything you ever imagined about the Maldives. The best thing is that you almost have the beaches to yourself, since there are no tourists on the island. I highly recommend this guesthouse. I will come back for sure!
