Families are sure to enjoy regular visits to Milk Lab for its refreshing selection of ice cream and frozen yoghurt alongside vegan sandwiches and slices of cake. Or they can opt to take a short dhoni boat ride to Crab Shack – a truly unique dining experience not to be missed. Serving fresh seafood and light bites in a barefoot chic setting along the island’s sandbar, it offers a memorable toes-in-the-sand dining experience that stirs the imagination of deserted island adventures.
As much as lazing by the pool and sampling the wonderful cuisine are the cornerstones of a relaxing beach holiday at Finolhu, there are times when a little more excitement is needed, especially with restless children to keep entertained.
The Oceaneers Kids Club at the resort offers a wide choice of activities for children aged from 4 to 12 years. Likewise, the whole family can enjoy a magical trip out on the lagoon together in the Penguin Semi-Sub. Snorkelling, scuba diving and non-motorized water sports are also available, while moms can indulge in a little “me time” at Fehi Spa or take part in the resort’s wellness offerings for a little privacy and pampering.
