Top choice in Ari Atoll & Around

Dhigurah is a charming, clean and friendly local island with about 600 inhabitants and around ten guesthouses. It's a very long island, with an absolutely stunning white-sand beach down one side that extends into a giant sandbank that sometimes connects Dhigurah to the LUX* Maldives resort to the south. There's a bikini beach, several cafes and lots of souvenir shops along the main street. It's a wonderful base for a diving and beach holiday.
