Depending on the type of island, it’s also possible that you may even just find yourself to be one of just a handful of tourists staying there. Notably, be warned, you might never want to leave.
Note – many guesthouses in the Maldives are called ‘Ocean View,’ ‘Ocean Front’ or ‘Seaside,’ but be sure to check their real location on Google Earth, as this is not always the case, as many of them find these out the hard way, and ended up staying smack bang in the centre of the island!
