Island Description

The tiny island of Vaavu Thinadhoo is a tourism success story untold. This is an island with only a few people and few guest houses. The guests live freely among locals and there is mutual love and respect on both sides. The island provides guest with a real living adventurous version of holiday which typical resorts do not provide to their guests.

Do not mess up this island with another Thinadhoo located in the atoll Gaafu Dhaalu – in the south (ie, further south) of the Maldives.

The island is divided into two parts: a village in which 120 people are officially registered. And in fact, only about 40 people live. There are very few local islands where you can see like that. Between the village and the bikini beach stretches the jungle. Virtually no rubbish. It’s clean and well maintained. The road to the beach takes 5-7 minutes of walking.

Only a couple of shops, two dive centers and a café you can find on the island. Surprisingly, there are few guest houses packed mostly with Italians and a hotel where Eastern Europeans usually spend their holidays. There’s no school, stadium or hospital on the island

Despite its rather small size Thinadhoo can boast one of the best bikini beaches in Maldives.

Besides the beach and the house reef you may discover the neighboring picnic island and several sandbanks where you can make a barbecue or simply spend a day far from civilization.

If you’re tired of snorkeling around the island you can visit one of the closest outside reefs. Not to say that night snorkeling with sharks is definitely a must! That point is near Alimatha Resort you can enjoy the company of nurse sharks which are completely safe and friendly for human. There you can meet around 20-30 sharks! Isn’t that impressive?

There are many activities available at Thinadhoo, such as Maldivian fishing, sorkeling, diving, water sports and other island (both inhabited and uninhabited) excursions as well as sand bank trips.

Thinadhoo is perfect for families with children, romantic couples and those who likes private, comfortable and quite retreats.
