Vilamendhoo was the 2nd island we visited in Sep 2011. We were looking for an affordable island with a great coral reef and this island fit the bill. In fact it is still up there with the best Maldivian reefs we have seen to date! The island isn’t the most romantic and it can feel slightly over crowded (only by Maldivian standards), with some ugly erosion. But the reef makes up for anything lacking above water. We loved the plate coral on this island – simply stunning.
