Package Overview

Stay on the southern island of Fuvahmulah and not only enjoy the uniqueness of this Maldives Island but return home and amaze your friends with your Maldivian menu! Combining the opportunity to learn how to cook traditional Maldivian food with discovering the culture and tradition of the Maldives and plenty of time to enjoy the things for which the Maldives is renowned. Fuvahmulah is the nearest atoll to the Equator and the first atoll in the Southern Hemisphere; it has many distinctive features which make it quite unique. It is a one-island atoll and the second largest island in the Maldives (if not for land reclamation) and includes a diverse range of habitats ranging from tropical woodlands and wetlands to freshwater lakes, well-vegetated marshland areas, white sandy beaches of different variations and pebble texture, plus gravel beaches and fertile agricultural lands greater in area than any other island in the Maldives. The two freshwater lakes in the island, plus the many number of swamps and marshland areas give habitat to different plant and animal species not found anywhere else in the Maldives. The wetland areas of Fuvahmulah are mostly made up of dense vegetation of different kinds ranging from ferns to reeds traditionally used for weaving mats to an abundance of water spinach and plant varieties such as Mango, Pineapple, Screwpine, Banana trees and many more. Fuvahmulah is also home to farmland areas where locals grow different crops such as cucumber, tomato, carrot, cabbage, pepper, capsicum, eggplant and ladies' fingers which makes Fuvahmulah the ideal destination for a culinary holiday.International Flights Single supplement for guests not wishing to room share Travel Insurance Drinks, snacks and other personal expenses Tips for guide11-1031-12
