To explore further, head for Rihiveli, which is 25 miles away to the south of Male. The main island is surrounded by two deserted islets, the East Island and Bird Island. In the day, visitors can go for excursions, big game fishing, parasailing, sailing or diving in the protected areas of Embudhoo and Guraidhoo Kandu.
