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 guest houses 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 are no other beach on the island that let you wear 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

Maafushi Island in 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 resorts. 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 the local population with several locals moving over to tap into the growing tourism trade.

    • Trip to Maldives

      After booking previous 2 years with Travel Triangle, this time it would have been a Total disaster had not Apurva from travel triangle coordinated and arranged alternate resort. My initial booking was through Kesia Holidays and my contact point Amit did a big goof up and for almost a month I was not given a clear picture by him or the contact points from Travel Triangle that my booking actually is not even confirmed with the resort. So did settle for whatever was available 4 days prior to the departure. Had a bad experience.

      Hotel is good to stay but if you are vegetarian then, please don't select this hotel for your trip. In vegetarian menu there were salad, pasta, and bread that's it. Hotel staff was good, we special liked a day tour of exertion trip that includes snorkeling in three reefs, lunch on sand bank, and dolfin watching.

      Travel Triangle is a very good site for booking trips within budget and they give amazing options for your choice of your budget. They also give options of various agencies according to our budget. Mr. Ishan was the representative of travel petals who guided us throughout the process and trip. We are very thankful for him. Starting from the selection, payment, installment dates, tickets, vouchers, flights, cabs, etc were arranged perfectly and comfortably. Thank you so much Travel triangle and Travel Petals for our memorable trip. We went on a honeymoon trip to Maldives which is an amazing place. The resort Adaaran select Meedhupparu is an excellent resort where we had free food, snacks and drinks in our package. The hotel resort was much comfortable than the way we thought it would be. And the beach view from our room was just mind blowing. The unforgettable view was the view of the sea from the swimming which is just heaven. Thank you Travel triangle and Travel Petals for our unforgettable amazing trip.
