A New Millennium in Reethi

  • A see-in the new millennium beach break - 120 island resorts to choose from in the Maldives.
  • The flight to the capital, Malé was tedious. It was a very cramped charter plane via Colombo.
  • The seaplane from Malé to Reethi was far more acceptable - great views of the islands and reefs
  • Our island was tiny and could be circumnavigated in less than ten minutes.
  • We had our own strip of powdery white beach - it was peaceful and gorgeous.
  • The house reef was a few hundred yards too many away for comfortable access. The aquamarine lagoon was clear and shallow, so the swim wasn’t too daunting - until I disturbed an octopus who shot out of the water in front of me. My scream woke up every one dozing on their sunbeds. The sights were suitably rewarding when I finally arrived - the coral teemed with tropical fish and turtles. Swimming alongside a turtle is incredibly relaxing, they look so serene.
  • The food wasn’t great –it’s all imported of course. The island is much too small to grow anything.
  • New Year’s Eve brought live music and fireworks, with a flaming sign - Happy Last Second of the Second Millennium’.
