Morning all
Like many others, am a newbie here. Have read the reports on trip advisor but a web site dedicated to the places is excellent.
Me and my beautiful fiance are flying out from Gatwick to Male on 29th August and cant wait. The reports are incredible that you all write and Im like a cat on a hot tin roof - waiting impatiently for the day.
Not that Im counting but I can give you it in days and hours if you want!!
The photos look incredible. The sea - is it warm? Can you really swim with the fish? It just looks like heaven and paradise all rolled into one.
Heres to the 29th and 37 more sleeps!
Kev Very Happy

Welcome

Yes the sea is warm, its a warmer than your body temp so feels lovely. The fish are everywhere. Take your own snorkel and mask but hire the flippers if you have not already got them. We do take our own but its the same every time, weight in the case!!! who is going to take them in their case and not take as many clothes.

You and your beautiful finance will love the island. What accommodation have you booked?

Why not set up your ticker thingy. it will count the days for you. The instructions etc are in the in the General Discussion. Key Days to Meeru calculator into the search bit and it will bring them up for you to set it in your signature.

Have a lovely time

Linda

Hi - I cant tell you to be honest as I forget where my better half and I will be staying. She booked it for us - kinda like doing the honeymoon first and get married sometime next year. Just a couple of 40 something year olds wanting an incredibly romantic time together in paradise. I know its on dry land as im not that swift looking at gaps between wooden planks - not looking forward to the boat transfer - thats nerve wracking enough. Yet I love swimming and will happily bob around in the sea. I have this thing about loving being in the sky (Im a glider pilot) and can sit up there for hours riding thermals alone, but bobbing on a boat.... less said. I will go on the trips though cause if they are important to my beautiful fiance, then I will take a couple of tablets and go along.
Staying at a hotel night before just outside country club - got parking there for the two weeks included in the over night bed and breakfast price. use their pool, gym etc and then head to LGW - three miles away with extra leg room seats paid for and ready to chill.

Hi Kevin

We have always found that after such a long flight and the build up of excitment we actually forget that we are even on a boat crossing. We were there a few weeks ago and we were just sitting there looking for dolphins and looking at all of the other islands as we past them and after about 40 minutes we were both just scanning ahead for our first glimpse of the Asian Wok ....best sight ever!! Meeru is such an amazig place, take in every moment.

Enjoy

Donna
