New island Maafushivaru & Underwater Pics – Maldives Travel Diary Day 7 & 8
today I’m writing to you from a new island. We just arrived at Maafushivaru and have already fallen in love with the island. The people here are great (no snobs), there are many options to go diving or snorkling (including sharks, mantas, turtles, wale sharks etc.), the food here is amazing and the whole atmosphere on the island (or rather two island, which I will tell you more about later) is wonderful 🙂
Yesterday we spent the day at Velassaru. Unfortunately we haven’t been so lucky with the weather all three days on Velassaru which is unfortunate as the island is really beautiful. But of course the colors are the most vibrant when the sun is shining.
This morning shortly before our departure we saw blue skies and lots of sunshine. It was the first time where you saw the real beauty of the island.
Of course we had a nice breakfast at Velassaru before our flight 🙂
We still tried to make the best of our last day on Velassaru and went snorkling and diving. Here you can see our pics. We shot them right in front of our water villa.
Monday after breakfast we left by seaplane to Maafushivaru.
This is how we were welcomed by the hotel 🙂 So cute!
Instead of a water villa like on the last two islands we are staying in a pool villa this time. This is almost better as it is also located directly by the beach.
Have a look at this infinity pool 😀
In love with Maafushivaru!
For dinner on our first night we had amazing Japanese food together with the Austrian hotel manager and his wife. Both are wonderful people and we had a great time while enjoying sushi and the best beef ever!
Maafushivaru consists of two islands: One is the hotel island and the other one is a private island. Tomorrow evening we will even spend a night on the private island. It doesn’t get more romantic than that… haha 😀 Of course I will take you with us for a bit 😉
