Relax on Ukulhas Beach
Surrounding the island is the pristine white sandy beach of the island. Beaches in Maldives are always a notch above the rest and one of the main assets of the country. This is the same with Ukulhas as well.
The beach in Ukulhas is tidier than the beaches in the other local island due to the endless efforts of locals living in the island. It has been also extended in recent year making it one of the longest bikini beaches among the local islands. The beach is known to get muddy during the rainy season but is generally a clean place with free umbrellas and sunbeds scattered across.
Walking on the beach, gazing into the sunset with your loved one, with grains of sand stuck beneath your feet while the gently crashing waves washes them away is a priceless feeling.

The reef of the island is home to varieties of underwater creatures from turtles to devil fishes to sharks and manta rays. The current in the water is just right to explore through these depths of nature and not too strong to make life difficult for you.
The best time to go diving is in the morning where the water is clear and not muddy. Exploring the ocean is a must in Maldives as it is the heart and soul of the country.
