How to Reach Spots for Exploring the Islands at Maldives

You can plan your air-travel hassle free from all the major destinations as there are direct flights from Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Kolkata, Bangalore, Pune and Cochin that fly to Male airport. With all major airlines operating frequently, your travel while departing from India also gives you options to land at Hanimaadhoo International Airport located in Haa Dhaalu Atoll, Hanimaadhoo Island.

Visa Terms

Maldives offers a free 30 day visa on arrival and you can easily find assistance for the same at the airport that welcomes you. Please ensure that you have all the necessary documents like passport, return ticket handy at least till the time you leave the airport after reaching. The Maldivian policies are easy and lets you extend your visit to a total of 60 days by applying at the department of immigration and emigration with a fee of MVR 750 (subject to change).

Flights to Maldives

All the South-East Asian destinations including India, China and Sri Lanka connect to Maldives with utmost ease. Located in Hulhule this airport stands at a 10 minute ferry ride from the capital. Over 30 international airlines including Cathay Pacific, British Airways, Spice Jet, Qatar Airways etc. operate flights daily. And your treat of overwhelming encounters start even before you land; watch out for (probably) the most beautiful runway you will ever land over.

Commuting Within Maldives

The most frequented mode of travel in Maldives is by waterways and the sea planes are the fastest way you can commute within the islands. The local boats, “Dhoni” are the cheaper charter boats and can be arranged prior. You will be supposed to pay as per the prescribed and the distance travelled.

Chartered boats are an alternative to the above mentioned ‘Dhoni’ and can be hired from Male where a captain and his crew members accompany you. It is apparent that they are expensive and eat up a good chunk of your total expense. As a solution, budget travelers can opt for a public ferry which connects the remote islands.

Note: Please keep in mind that the place doesn’t offer local metered taxis which we presume to have at most places today. Do plan accordingly. Maldives does have taxis with fixed prices which operate for local sightseeing and seldom travel.
