Our backpacker breaks are designed to either work as a self-contained budget Maldives experience or as a start to an independent stay in the archipelago.

Our backpacker packages are based on the local island of Guraidhoo.

Guraidhoo in South Male Atoll, it is a typical fishing island with about 2,300 inhabitants, sandy roads and palm trees. A 30 minute walk around the island highlights locals going about their daily routine and the carpenters at the local shipyard traditionally constructing typical local dhoni boats. Guraidhoo is a regular stopping point for safari boats and local shops have quickly adapted by offering all kind of souvenirs and a handful of local restaurants and coffee shops. Scuba diving is interesting in this area of Maldives Islands and during the season surfing, kiting and windsurfing here is excellent.

All of our guesthouse accommodation is handpicked to provide a balance of comfort, good service, local atmosphere and value for money. We have chosen a selection of locally operated guesthouses that provide comfortable clean rooms, friendly service and good food. All rooms have en-suite bathrooms, AC, ceiling fans and complimentary WiFi, whilst water, tea and coffee is always available. Most of the guesthouses are single or double story comprised of a maximum of 10 rooms. Some are set facing out to the ocean with a terrace or balcony. Others are built around a private garden or beach area, but in each you can be assured of a warm welcome.
