Local Island Hopping Excursions

When holidaying in the Maldives, it is all too easy to succumb to the picturesque luxury of resort life – especially when staying at Komandoo Maldives where the villas are private bolt holes and the dining is exquisite but it would be an opportunity missed to not see what life is like on local islands too. The excursions team at Komandoo has curated three fascinating experiences where you can immerse yourselves in the rich culture of our island nation.

Hinnavaru Island Trip & Snorkelling
Take a visit to a nearby local island, Hinnavaru, the second most populous island in the Lhaviyani Atoll, and get a glimpse of the true Maldivian way of life. In addition to visiting Hinnavaru, this excursion also includes time to snorkel at one of the nearby reefs.

Felivaru Tuna Factory Tour
Take a tour and immerse yourself in the traditional Maldives fishing islands of Felivaru, as known as home to one of the largest tuna factories in the Maldives. Followed by snorkelling in one of the best spots nearby.

Naifaru Turtle Sanctuary & Island Tour
Spend half a day visiting the capital island of Lhaviyani Atoll, where you experience true Maldivian culture and see a local hospital, school, mosque and most importantly the Turtle Preservation Sanctuary.
