We selected Ellaidhoo by searching both for the best house reefs in the Maldives, and for the best budget locations, and this was the one island that showed up on both searches.

Let me start by saying this is my sixth island in the Maldives since 1999 so although I can't claim to be a regular visitor I can claim some knowledge of other resorts there. My first comment is about the speedboat trip to the island. It's not the easiest trip. If you are in anyway hesitant about it then use...
