With plenty of things to do, Maafushi Island has a bustling, upbeat atmosphere and a holiday resort vibe.
Kick off your visit on the 21st (Sat): kick back and relax at Bikini Beach, get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, and then look for gifts at Angolo Souvenir shop.

To see photos, more things to do, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read Maafushi Island road trip planning website.

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates to Maafushi Island is an approximately 8.5- hour combination of bus and flight. You can also do a combination of car and flight. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Abu Dhabi to Maafushi Island due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Abu Dhabi in November, plan for a bit warmer nights in Maafushi Island, with lows around 30°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 21st (Sat) early enough to travel to Rasdhoo.
