Best of the Maldives: Sunniest – Dhigufaru

Dhigufaru - beach

Sunniest time of the year. Well, the longest amount of sunshine in the day (depending on your time zone). Not that it matters that much at the Equator where daytime doesn’t vary all that much. Still an occasion to call out another quirky resort distinction. After visiting nearly 100 resorts, Dhigufaru did strike me as the “sunniest”. Essentially, the property was developed from an existing sand bank. As a result, the foliage is less dense, less tall and less mature. Walking around you feel the sky and sunshine everywhere. Conversely, many parts of many resort islands have dense canopies that can almost feel like tunnels of greenery.

    Well, if we adopt this criterion for “sunniest”, there are currently some around 😉 (see i.e. Fushifaru).

    I’m definitely open to other nominations. It was just a characteristic that struck me about Dhigufaru when I visited and then when I found out that it was essentially a sandbank, it had an explanation as to why the foliage canopy was so thin.
