About Maafushi Island in Maldives

Lying in the Kaafu Atoll at a mere 27 kilometers away from capital Malé, the bustling 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.  This elongated island houses almost 3,000 people but is far from being overcrowded. Maafushi Island Maldives has a tourist zone to its North. This zone is completely dedicated to tourism because at this place one can find guest houses, restaurants,  gift shops, and Maafushi Island hotels. To its south is Maldives’ only prison. Right at the heart of the island is a central mosque, a school, stadium and administrative offices. The addition of guest houses has led to a boom in tourism, as well as in local population with several locals moving over to tap into the growing tourism trade.

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.

Maafushi Island in Maldives amazes tourists with it’s never ending charm and surprises them at every step. It is also one of the places that take you close to the rich Maldivian culture and tradition.
