Travel Tips

Absolutely! Visiting the islands of Maldives can be a truly magical experience. Here are some travel tips for your visit to Fuvahmulah, Hulhumale, Male, and Eydhafushi:

Best Time to Visit:
The weather in the Maldives is pretty consistent throughout the year, but the best time to visit is between November and April to avoid the monsoon season.

Route and Accessibility:
These islands are well connected by both sea planes and speedboat transfers from Male International Airport. It's recommended to arrange your transfers in advance with your respective hotels or resorts.

Altitude and Acclimatization:
The Maldives has the lowest altitude in the world so altitude sickness won't be a concern.

Accommodation and Booking:
Maldives offers a host of stay options ranging from luxury resorts to budget guesthouses. A good practice is to book accommodation and all necessary transfers well in advance.

Clothing and Essentials:
Pack lightweight clothing suitable for a tropical climate, as well as swimwear and beach essentials. Sunscreen is crucial, and insect repellent can be useful.

Health and Safety:
Before you travel, it is advisable to take out comprehensive travel and medical insurance. Avoid tap water and stick to bottled water. It's also a good idea to know emergency services numbers or nearest hospital.

Local Etiquette and Respect:
Even though Maldives is a Muslim country, resorts are more relaxed about clothing compared to local islands. When visiting non-resort islands such as Male or Eydhafushi, women should dress modestly and men should not be shirtless. Alcohol consumption is prohibited on non-resort islands. Be respectful to the local customs and traditions.
