When we stayed in Dhuni Kolhu, Maldives, we had the chance to sail to a neighboring (non resort) island called Thulhaadhoo filled with colorful homes, beautiful smiles, unique hammocks (that I HAD TO swing on since I am obsessed with hammocks). There are no designated streets or sidewalk since the ground is all sand. It’s customary to take off your shoes when you enter a store or home. Check out the serene beautiful colors of the homes, the humongous breadfruit plants, and the beauty of it all. Oh, did I mention that there are bats - that have a wingspan of 36″ wide? they are awesome! Check out the photos below.
The main fruit grown on the island is from the gorgeous lush breadfruit tree - shown above. See the round green objects in the trees? Those are the breadfruit. Aren’t they humongous! You will also see in the photos trees growing from INSIDE the homes, hammock style twined chairs, the contrast of colorfully painted homes, oh yes and the fruit bats that visit the island for the breadfruit. Some homes even go to the extent of surrounding the breadfruit with plastic bottles to keep the bats away. I personally found the bats adorable (okay, so I may be a bit weird!), though, the bats existence is very important bec they help pollinate - hence the lush humongous breadfruit.
TREE GROWING FROM INSIDE THE HOME FOYER - I LOVE IT
DID YOU SPOT ABOVE THE PLASTIC JUGS
COVERING / PROTECTING THE BREADFRUIT?
We were so glad that we got to visit the island. And I got to play (I mean, test for professional reasons only, of course!) in their handmade hammocks. Weeeeeeeeee.
