You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Abu Dhabi to Maafushi Island due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Abu Dhabi in April, plan for little chillier days and a bit warmer nights in Maafushi Island: temperatures range from 37°C by day to 32°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Wed) early enough to travel to Male.
