Mauritius vs Seychelles vs Maldives – Which Island is Right For You?

When it comes to tropical destinations in the Indian Ocean, you have a number of islands to choose from. Some of the most popular to visit for beach-forward vacationers are Mauritius, the Seychelles, and the Maldives to name a few, and they are all wonderful countries to visit if you get a chance.

But if you can only go to one and you're having trouble deciding between which to visit, you're not alone. While the destinations look similar on the surface, there are a few key differences between them that we wanted to highlight in this one. After reading, you'll have a better idea of which country is best for your needs and interests!

Note: Due to their size we are not including Madagascar and Sri Lanka in this article. This post is purely looking at beach-forward island destinations in the Indian Ocean. We hope to visit Reunion soon to add it for comparison purposes!

Fulidhoo Island Guide – What to See, Do, Eat, and Experience

Fulidhoo is one of dozens upon dozens of local islands in the Maldives and is one that is quickly becoming a popular destination for tourists.

This is due to many reasons, but two of the most important are the island's size (it is about 2000 feet long by 800 feet wide) and its location relative to Male (about an hour by speedboat). Couple that with a fairly decent infrastructure for visitors as far as local islands are concerned and you have the makings of a really great destination to visit and unwind for several days!

In this one, we wanted to share some of the biggest things you should know before visiting Fulidhoo!

Conrad Rangali Review – The Perfect Maldives Hotel Stay

If you're reading this and are trying to decide if you should visit the Conrad Rangali in the Maldives, I'll make it easy for you. The question is not a matter of if you should visit, but rather when and for how long. 

I can safely say that the Conrad Rangali was the highlight of our Maldives vacation, and, in fact, it is the first resort we've ever visited where we could imagine returning again in the future. Considering most guests we met were on their 2nd, 3rd, or even 4th visit to the property, I can also safely say this- we are not alone in that thought.

In this review, we're going to share why that is.

Notes: As with all of our Hilton stays, we used points for booking this hotel. Our ~$1,300/night overwater bungalow cost 95,000 points per night and we used a buy four get the fifth-night free promo to extend our stay. As such, our bill was reduced by nearly $7,000. This should be kept in mind when reading and will be addressed at the end. Likewise, outbound links in this article go to Booking.com; however, if you are a Hilton status member we recommend booking directly for the most perks.
