No dejen de conocer esta isla de Maldivas, realmente vale la pena, la playa tiene un hermoso restaurante, que te atienden como si fueras una divinidad, además cuenta la playa con reposaras y sombrilla... more »Do not miss this island of Maldives, it is really worth it, the beach has a beautiful restaurant, they serve you as if you were a divinity, also has the beach with free rests and parasols! If you are in Gulhi besides the beach restaurant, you have to go to eat at a local café that serves a WONDERFUL meal, just enter the place, they serve you water, which is included in the menu and is the most beautiful and also cheap of the island!
When you come to the Maldives, you expect a dream beach with corals and white sand. In Gulhi, the sewage system (from the toilets i.e. piss) goes right into the bikini beach. You can see the blue sewage tubes going into the bikini beach. There is no fish under the water. Everything is dead. It smells bad outside. There are plastic bottles floating all around. I do not think that it is safe in terms of hygiene to swim there. The worst part is that there is a clean beach on the other side of the island, but it is only allowed to Muslims. We tried to go there anyway but we got yelled at that this beach was not allowed to foreigners. We were forced to go back to the dirty beach. The excursions in Gulhi are twice more expensive than in Maafushi for instance. The restaurants are also very expensive and with bad quality compared to other islands (Maafushi, Diffushi, etc...). Same with the hotels. The price absolutely does not match the value. Finally, the locals are aggressive. We wanted to share with them, learn about their culture. But they only see foreigners as money and we could feel that they hated foreigners. Small note for single women: be aware that the bikini beach is full of muslim men harassing girls. I think this is a dangerous place for women to travel alone. After 2 months spent in the Maldives, I recommend you to go to Diffushi or Fullidhoo or even Maafushi. Avoid Gulhi at all cost.
