Rasdhoo

As the only inhabited island in the Rasdhoo Atoll, Rasdhoo serves as a basecamp of sorts for vacationing in the area.
On your second day here, kick back and relax at Veligandu Island Beach and then see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

To find traveler tips, reviews, more things to do, and tourist information, refer to the Rasdhoo trip itinerary planner.

Newark, USA to Rasdhoo is an approximately 23.5-hour flight. Traveling from Newark to Rasdhoo, you'll lose 10 hours due to the time zone difference. Prepare for somewhat warmer weather when traveling from Newark in September: high temperatures in Rasdhoo hover around 87°F and lows are around 78°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 16th (Mon) to allow time for the ferry ride to Male.
