    Maldives....not for me!!.

    Yes nice in some ways but me and her indoors prefer places with stuff going on and things to see.
    Only went as friends asked us to join them......big expensive error!.

    It was the island of Kuredu,seaplane flight was great,accommodation and food also great,but the sheer boredom of all but nothing to do was a struggle for me.

    My watch enjoyed it.....

    Agreed. Two weeks on Kuramathi. Nice place but far too many Russian gangsters and apart from a bit of catamaran sailing, a day trip to another island and my wife learning to dive, I was bored out of my crust.

    Ohh and I took one good pic...

    We've been to Kuredu twice. 1st time was wonderful, very quiet and simple. When we went back in 2001 they'd started it up and there were some very unpleasant Russians there.

    Not for us either. 10 days in 2017 and we were bored. There was no Maldivian culture, the "house" reef was tired and worn out and there were rats, or tree hamsters as they called them, everywhere. Food and drink were excellent, room was very good but we wanted something more to do. Never again, thanks.

    We had our honeymoon on Kuramati in 1995, blissfully quiet, no contact with the outside world. I’d go again, wife won’t as the honeymoon was so special it cannot be replicated.

    Tell her you'll give it a good go.

    I'm guessing there's puddles out there with more depth....

    We spent two weeks on the island Fihalhohi for my 40th, 16 years ago this week. Loved every minute of it and would go back without hesitation.

    I read somewhere that these islands should be underwater by now.
