Getting There & Getting About

International Airports

Internal Transport

There are a number of internal air services, linking Malé with Kadhdhoo, Kaadedhdhoo and Gan. Some companies also operate twin-otter and float plane services around the Maldives; these are often used to transfer visitors from the airport to the resort islands or are used for trips around the islands.

Although most visitors tend to remain on their resort island for the duration of their stay, there are ferry services between islands along with local charter boats. Speedboats connect the airport with Ari Atoll and some outlying islands.

Individual islands rarely take longer than half an hour to cross on foot, although taxis are available in Malé.
