Experience The Real Maldives

Dhigurah island is located in the south part of Ari Atoll, only 20 minutes away by plane from Male. The island is one of the longest in Maldives and indeed that is what Dhigurah means in Dheveli, (Maldivian local language)....long island. The beach is 2 and 1/2 KM long and leads to a sand bank which is perfect for sunset watching wildlife watching and walks. There are two schools, a medical centre with a Doctor and 630 local people who are happy to share their beautiful island with all our guests.
With respect to local religion there is no alcohol available on Dhigurah, however guests who would like a drink can visit a nearby resort only 10 minutes away.
Guests are reminded to wear shorts and tee shirts as a minimum when walking into the village but bikini sunbathing can be enjoyed right in front of Boutique Beach, minutes away. 
Boutique Beach supports local initiatives aimed at improving the lives of our villagers and often sponsors school prizes and projects. We have worked to help reduce the plastic bag use on the island by providing all families with cotton carrier bags and carried out beach cleaning projects.
Guests can learn to cook Maldivian style, play Bodu Beru drums, see local crafts and watch or play one of the many sports taking place on Dhigurah ...football, volleyball, badminton, bashi...a ladies game where the ball is hit backwards.
