Nice beach with crystal clear and turquoise water. There were umbrellas at the beach so you can be at the shadow (the sun is really burning on sunny days). At the beach were some guys who asked us if we wanted to stay under the umbrella. We said yes.

After few hours of sunbathing he asked us some payment for the sunbeds and staying under umbrella. He didn’t mention any prices first so we were quite confused and annoyed about this kind of payment requirment. First he told us to pay 15$ but was finally okay with 10$. So as an advice: really recommend to ask if some service is gonna cost something. We felt like were fooled. Usually people at Maldives have been so kind and pure to us.

Near the beach is also some souvenirs sellers (jewellery, clothing etc.) and every time if passing by those sellers tried to get us to buy something.

There were also some shards of glass at the beach, so be careful if you have small children or you are bare foot.

Beach is basically ok but there are couple of disturbing things.

Negative things:
- We felt like we were scammed because we were not told that the use of sunbeds and umbrellas cost you dollars. There is no signs or anything regarding this and still the staff are offering you sunbeds and then after the day are asking for money.
- There was some broken glass on the beach
- People are selling some souveniers in front of the beach and every now and then they are bit aggressive

Positive things:
- Nice views and lots of room for people

Lovely shallow beach with all possible shades of blue. At the time of our visit, the beach was generally quiet and there were only a few other people besides us. There is no public toilet in the area, it can be found at the beachfront restaurant and costs $ 1. The beach was tidy in the mornings, but we still found some shards of glass. There are numerous sweet little crabs on the beach that were great to follow.

Gulhi or Bikini beach is just a wonderful place to be. The water is incredible and warn. If you swin, more or less, 200 meters from the shore you'll be able to see the reef with a lot of sea life. Also the beach its not crowded!

An excellent island with a beautiful bikini beach. The island is really small so it doesn't have as many food and hotel options as Maafushi but the beach is a hundred times better. You could do snorkel and near the canal you can see a lot of different fishes, baby black and white tip sharks and sting rays.

The most beautiful beach in the Maldives. Fine sand, crystal clear sea that changes color during the day in all shades of blue and green. Not a lot of coral. Lots of deck chairs on the beach. Locals prepare freshly squeezed juice - the price is a little more expensive, $ 10. The same goes for a large bottle of water, which you can still buy for $ 1 at one of the many shops on the island - a minute’s walk from the beach.

Well worth visiting this little island just off the resort. Very quiet with great snorkelling. We arrived by kayak, but you may arrive by the resort boat.
