Things To Do
Around the Island
Historical Malé: Savor a visit to the Malé, the world's smallest capital city, accessed by a 15-minutes luxury speedboat ride. The small, exotic and easy-going city buzzes with activity in its shops and markets. The museum with a wide range of historic relics, the 400-year-old mosque, the "Hukuru Miskiiy" with some of the finest coral carvings, the Islamic Centre, the Munnaaru (Minaret), the shrine of Abul Barakath Yousuf Al-Barbari, the former presidential palace, the Sultan Park, the National Museum and the tomb of Mohamed Thakurufaanu present a fascinating insight into the country's unique history. Sumptuous samples of Maldivian treats tantalize the taste buds at the local fruit and vegetable market. The fish market displays an array of freshly caught fish. Authentic Maldivian souvenirs are available at a traditional art and craft shop.
Bird's Eye View of Maldives: Apart from its magnificent marine life, the Maldives is blessed with coral reefs, turquoise lagoons and white sandy beaches. Our seaplane flight allows you to fully appreciate this picturesque country from the air. Your camera will be indispensable to capture the natural beauty of these tropical islands, resembling tiny pearls studded in a vast aquamarine canvas painted by the ocean, frame by frame. The plane lands at your feet on the beach and will take you on a 25-minute flight within the Atoll.
Fishing by Twilight: For centuries fishing has been the lifeline of the Maldives. The local fishermen employ a variety of techniques to catch fish that vary according to the type of fish and the time of the day. Guests at the resort can look forward to enjoying a stint of sunset fishing, also called night fishing, at the magical sunset hours along with sweeping views of the sunset whilst aboard an authentic Maldivian Dhoni. The charming wooden boat anchors by a reef close to the resort's island. With fishing lines, tackle and bait you can try their luck in catching reef fish such as Grouper, Red Snapper, Squirrel Fish, Skip Jack Tuna and Barracuda. You would be served your prized catch for lunch the next day, depending on the palatability of the fish. The chef would be more than pleased to prepare the fish according to your liking.
Sunset Cruise: Sunsets at Emboodhu Finolhu Island are special and spectacular. Enjoy a luxury cruise around the lagoon in the resort's customized speedboat and savor a stunning display of the changing hues of the sky and sea tinged by the setting sun. Enhance your enjoyment with a fine wine or champagne from the resort's exclusive wine room. Share this beautiful romantic cruise with a love one for an unforgettable experience.
