    Mulah is unsuitable for tourists who want to stay longer then 2 days or a beach vacation. We stayed for 12 nights. I had lots of contact in advance with the owner of the guesthouse, who let me believe that we actually could have a beach vacation there. This is the main reason for the negative rating. The locals are very friendly but they obviously don’t care for tourists and have no concept of tourism. Above and under water outside the village the island is completely trashed. The Bikini beach can´t be used because it has plastic and (broken) glass bottles and sharp-edged metal pieces all over the place. It´s also not convenient for swimming: the water is shallow for a long time. Also it´s not an official bikini beach: when families come there one isn´t allowed to be in there in a bikini. There is no reef around the island. Under water you see only old trash (cans and all kinds of garbage) and surprisingly many fish. Maybe if you have never been snorkeling before, it´s ok. The nearby reef isn´t worth mentioning (dead corals) and lots of fish but nothing special. If you want to eat fish you have to catch it yourself. We managed to get very well grilled fish one time at the restaurant of the owners brother. The guesthouse has three floors. In the first and second floor there is one bedroom with a huge glass front and in the 3rd floor there es a terrace with kitchen. The rooms have TV that we didn´t use, fridges and one had a water cooker. We bought two sun lounges prior to our arrival bevause there are non on the island. We didn´t get the promised sun umbrellas, but we wouldn´t have known what to use them for, since the bikini beach practically doesn´t exist. The host promised all kinds of things (a bikini beach good for swimming, sun umbrellas, windows to open in the bedrooms) and to meet us at the jetty in Male but never showed up there. This wasn´t a problem we did find the speedboat on our own. It just would have been much easier, if we wouldn´t have to search for a person there but had known the name of our speedboat instead. Pro Guesthouse: Large rooms, low price, Roof terrace with view (while standing), Kitchen with everything you need (missing items can be bought in the nearby store), Clean linen and towels, No cockraches in the rooms in 12 nights, Working washing machine, Very kind and good English speaking contact person (Asif) Contra Guesthouse: One bedroom has no windows to open. So one is forced to sleep with AC, The second bedroom has windows to open but gets very hot during the day, The hardest beds I ever slept on, diesel fumes from nearby parked fishing boats who leave their motors running for 6,7 hours. We have been unlucky with the weather: For 12 days the sea has been very rough. So we didn´t have the possibility to go on boattrips. We didn´t use the offer to spend the day at the nearby resort island Medhufushi ($ 40,- one trip).
