With over 1,000 islands spread over 90,000 square kilometres, choosing the right island to stay on can be confusing for visitors to the Maldives. And it doesn't help that all the islands are so gorgeous too. While many islands look similar to each other on the surface, they actually have their own charm and varying details that make them special. So if you're looking for the best Maldives island to visit whether you're on a honeymoon or a family vacation, check out the blog below.

Kani Island

Kani Island is located about 20 kilometres north of Malé. This resort island houses the Club Med Kani Resort which is an all-inclusive resort which provides food, drinks (including alcohol), activities, and excursions to their guests. You can stay in rooms on the beach or even get an overwater suite with a gorgeous panoramic view of the ocean. There are plenty of entertainment options on the island including performances, parties, snorkelling, and even excursions off the island.

Malé Island

Malé is a very urban island and is also the capital of the Maldives. While it's usually dismissed by visitors for other island resorts, Malé has a lot to offer families and honeymooners alike. You can join a tour to visit the Grand Friday Mosque, National Museum, local fish market, Tsunami Monument, and even play some water sports.

Hulhumalé Island

Hulhumalé is a reclaimed island connected to Malé by the Sinamalé Bridge. Although it may not be the most glamorous island in the archipelago, its lack of crowd makes it a good choice for people looking for privacy at an affordable price. You not only have the usual gorgeous Maldives beach here, but also easy access to Malé, snorkelling, and scuba diving tours as well.

Gasfinolhu Island

Gasfinolhu is a small island north of Kani island. It's covered with private villas on the beach or over water, each with their own private pool. At Club Med Finolhu Villas, you get the usual all-inclusive perks from all-day dining to exciting excursions. With its private nature and with turquoise waters just a few steps from the villas, this island is great for couples on a romantic getaway.
