Maafushi Island Activities (Maldives)

Lying in the Kaafu Atoll at a mere 27 kilometers away from the capital Malé, the charming Maafushi Island is the largest and most popular island in the Maldives. One can travel from Male to Maafushi Island by using local transport such as speed boats, public ferries, and more. Maafushi Island in Maldives amazes tourists with its never-ending charm and surprises them at every step. Maafushi Village Ethereal Inn, Summer Villa Guest House, and Narnia Maldives are popular guesthouses worth staying.

This elongated island houses almost 3,000 people but is far from being overcrowded. It is also one of the places that take you close to the rich Maldivian culture and tradition. If you are on a Maldives tour, go through our essential information column to get some more information.

Things to Do in Maafushi Island

Much of Maafushi’s natural charm is left untouched by urbanization or development. The sandbar to the North of the island offers a plethora of Maafushi Island activities such as sunbathing, and snorkeling, while the Furafathi sandbar to the West in the middle of the sea is teeming with natural underwater flora and fauna. Maafushi island also offers other exciting activities such as fishing, diving, and picnic island excursions. There are also late-night fishing programs to enjoy. Night fishing, in particular, is quite relaxing and many local groups arrange fishing trips with guides, equipment and in some cases even meals.

Attractions of Maafushi Island

Let’s take a look at what are the best experiences to cherish on an expedition to Maafushi Island.

Beaches

If sunbathing is on your list, then you can head to Bikini Beach which is located on the northern side of the Maafushi Island. Apart from this beach, there is no other beach on the island that let you wear a bikini. However, you can always enjoy some time at other public beaches and the water sports beach for some adrenaline rush, solitude, and rejuvenation.

Snorkeling

While exploring the turquoise waters, snorkeling is one of the best activities to partake in and witness a myriad of colorful corals and fishes. You can also enjoy a rendezvous with dolphins, and have a fun-filled experience.

Sandbank

A landform comprising a sandbar in water, the sandbank of Maafushi Island is one of the hundred most beautiful sandbanks in Maldives. Considered as a perfect rest spot, here people can enjoy some blissful moments while cherishing some spectacular views.

Dolphin Safari

Dolphin Safari is another attraction to keep you hooked while exploring the island. This activity lets you take a glimpse of some turtle reefs and fun-filled dolphins that may just make your day. Irrespective of how old you and your tribe are, a dolphin safari is a must to experience.

Luxury Resort Excursion

Book an excursion to the luxury resorts of Maldives Island, and get to experience a royal sojourn with a sumptuous buffet lunch. On Maldives excursion, if you couldn’t get to book a stay on any of its luxury resorts, you can still choose to explore these resorts for a day.

Maafushi Island Travel Guide

This zone is completely dedicated to tourism because at this place one can find guest houses, restaurants, gift shops, and Maafushi Island resorts. To its south is Maldives’ only prison.

    Jay's 5 days trip to Maldives

    Thanks to Nausad and Footprint holidayz for arranging our whole Maldives trip hustle-free. As it was a birthday gift to my wife they really help me to organize this trip in a way that really made my wife's birthday very special. From selecting a resort to make special arrangements for her birthday N
    ausad help me in every step. After initial booking, I got a lower rate than Footprint Holidayz but at that time as Nausad explained that no one can beat them in terms of service so do not compromise on service for just a few thousand for any international travel and after completing my trip I really agreed to his point now. So all people on Travel Triangel who are planning their trip and looking for first-class service, just go for Footprint Holidayz without a second thought.

    I came to know of travel triangle through a friend who had used this to plan his honeymoon. Naushad responded the earliest to our query, and gave us great tips on what to look for. We had a great time at Maldives on our honeymoon, with no small thanks to Naushad and his team. He made sure we got the
    best deals, and had the best trip possible. Everything was very well planned, and we had absolutely no issues with anything at all. The resort was brilliant, with the location and the services provided. Most complementary stuff that was provided was absolutely worth it, and he was able to give us a great worth for our budget. Thanks Naushad and the team and Footprint Agency.
