  Huraa is an excellent island to visit for those wanting a more local, Maldivian feel for their vacation.

 While the island has a number of guest houses, it lacks an abundance of large, secluded resorts many of the islands have.  This Huraa-poolallows for visitors to really embrace and interact with the locals.

As with all Maldivian islands, Huraa has an abundance of white sand beaches and is situated in the midst of brilliant, turquoise water.  Snorkeling and diving are very popular activities on Huraa.

The local dive club, Scuba Divine Maldives, offers an excellent dive tour that will take you to various locations where you can swim alongside manta rays and turtles, both of which are plentiful in the

Reef

Maldives.  There are also a variety of dives and snorkel trips that can be booked through various guest houses or resorts.

For the truly adventurous, Shark Safaris can be booked, which allow visitors to snorkel amongst sharks!

 If you want a more traditional beach experience, the island also has a bikini beach, where  more revealing swimwear can be worn without offending local customs (the Maldives are a Muslim nation where visitors are generally expected to wear more modest swimwear when in public).  Additionally, Huraa is a good spot for surfing.

Visitors to the  Huraa island:

should also take time to explore the town and experience the Maldivian culture.  There are a number of affordable restaurants that offer traditional Maldivian cuisine, which is heavily Indonesian and Indian influenced.  

Additionally, visitors should check with their guest houses regarding any cultural events that may be occurring on the island during their stay.  Should you want to visit a spa, bar, or fine dining establishment, the guest houses can also provide cheap entry passes to the nearby resorts, allowing you to use their “public” amenities
