Maafushi is a local island with an extensive tourism infrastructure suited for budget travelers, but with all the amenities a resort island could offer. Bikini Beach is its main attraction. The Maldives is a Muslim country, and as this is the only beach on the island where people are allowed to wear bikinis, this is also the place to be for tourists from around the world. Bikini Beach is located in the heart of the touristic part of Maafushi. Therefore, various restaurants, cafés, hotels, guesthouses and diving schools are literally just around the corner. Please be sure to be dressed respectfully on the short way from your room to the beach.
