Maldives on a budget?

How? Let me show you!

Inhabited Islands

This is a ‘secret’ category of Maldivian islands. Well, not exactly. It is more than underappreciated island category that allows for family travel to the Maldives on a budget! Or anyone to have budget travel in the Maldives?

These are islands are where the local Maldivians live. They vary in size from the most populated area in the world of Male to the much smaller islands. They are the ‘lived-in version’ of the resort islands. The beauty is still present it may just need a little help to get there. There are 200  islands that are in this category.

There are only 400,000 Maldivians and 200 islands. These are not densely populated. They are the ‘lived-in version’ of the resort islands. The beauty is still present it may just take a little longer to find it. A short boat ride for example and you are in the exact blue hue and sugar-white sands seen in all the resort websites, for a fraction of the price! You can find one that will suit your budget and needs.
