My boyfriend and I visited Embudu back in May. I'd firstly like to thank all the people who have left reviews on trip advisor, all the positive feedback convinced us to choose Embudu over the other islands. What can I say, it was beautiful! You can walk round the whole island in 20 minutes, so there's no need for shoes, however I always wore shoes in the restaurant. If you love fish/snorkelling/diving then this island is a MUST! The house reef is amazing. Before we left for the Maldives, We created a list of all the marine life we really wanted to see (manta rays, turtles, lion fish, sting rays, sharks, barracuda etc) and by swimming round the island, up to 3 times a day, we soon had seen everything on our list. My highlight was being able to swim beside a huge manta ray that had come close to the reef to get to the cleaning stations. The rooms were basic, very clean and modern, so if you want luxury, this isnt the island for you. The staff were very friendly and polite and always happy to have a chat. There was a large variety of food and the desserts were amazing. There's plenty of diving excursions, but not many snorkelling. If you wanted to snorkel at a different reef, you'd have to tag along with the divers and then you wouldn't have a guide, but we didn't feel the need to do this with the house reef being so good. We were full board, so didn't get our drinks included, but this was perfect for us as we aren't drinkers, so would only have to buy a few bottles of water a day at $2 each. If you want to drink lots of alcohol, cocktails etc, then it may be worth you going all inclusive. I would go back to this island In a heart beat, it really is a paradise and I enjoyed being cut off from the world for 2 weeks.
