Yesterday, I got a chance to visit Kudahuvhadoo Island, though not for a leisure trip. Me and my 15 expat colleagues went there for medical as our work permits are due for renewal.
But even though it wasn’t a leisure trip, I made sure I’ll have photos to bring home.
Kudahuvhadoo Island is located in Dhaalu Atoll and it is way bigger than other islands. When I say bigger, it means you can’t walk around the island – actually you can but it will be a long walk. So there were motorbikes everywhere and I saw a few cars too. This island has bigger medical facilities than the other local islands, I saw an ATM and a bank, and a domestic airport will be opening soon.
I’ve taken some photos which will show you a different side of Maldives, the one that is far different from the usual impression about the country – luxurious resorts, beach vibes, snorkeling, under water restaurants, etc.
There was a small cafe where we had our lunch. It looked like a carinderia with monobloc chairs and tables with plastic mantle on. I had Bami Goreng for lunch which really looked just like an instant fried noodles mixed with some beef and chicken slices and sausages
But never mind the plastic chairs and tables and the menu with only 15 dishes on it because just look at the amazing view.
