Maldives 2nd part; Kuda Bandos and the Sandbank

4-days quick solo trip in the island countries of Indian Ocean
February 25 to March 01, 2014 


Upon arrival on my booked accommodation in Hulhumale, I immediately asked the Inn desk officer for assistance for my itinerary on succeeding days. After couple of minutes, I agreed to the travel tour suggestion for tomorrow's plan. Customized full-day island tour that includes the following; pick-up/drop-off from my hotel, lunch, refreshments, speedboat ride, visit to Himmafushi (local island), Kuda Bandos (uninhabited island), sandbank and Baros (high-end island resort), and entrance fees. All of them for $150 per pax but I negotiated it for $140 only, payment can be given upon boat departure with invoice exchange.

Just a few minutes away from the island of Bandos lies Kuda Bandos, an uninhabited island surrounded by the vast Indian Ocean. Cloaked in a veil of lush greenery, this little island in the Maldives offers seclusion in the heart of paradise for those in search of it. Ideal for newlywed couples looking for privacy, Kuda Bandos is a dreamy retreat where you can spend hours with your loved one enjoying the amazing sunsets, the crisp sea breeze and the white sandy beaches.
