Impressions of Velassaru Maldives

June 11, 2017

I must come back with Coco!

Maldives: 390 000 people dispersed over 90 000 square km

Capital: Male 133,412 people and an area of 5.8 square km

Average ground level: 1.5 meters over sea level, highest point 2.4 meters

Biggest challenges: garbage disposal ( currently sent to Thilafushi, artificial island built in 1991, can be seen from Velassaru ) and high risk of submersion due to the rising sea levels and

Plan B: relocate the population to Sri Lanka or India

Crazy fact: new resorts being built as I write

    Hi, I really liked your post. Next year we will travel my family and I to Velassaru and I have loved reading your review. Many thanks for this great post
    Can I ask you a question? Who made you the video of the Spa? Yourself?

      Hi Dolores, thank you very much. I made a video with my cameras and a small tripod, it was quick.
      Hope you’ll enjoy Velassaru.
