Maafushi Island

With plenty of things to do, Maafushi Island has a bustling, upbeat atmosphere and a holiday resort vibe.
Kick off your visit on the 29th (Sat): discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, then look for gifts at Angolo Souvenir shop, and then enjoy the sand and surf at Bikini Beach.

To see photos, traveler tips, ratings, and tourist information, you can read our Maafushi Island road trip website.

Kolkata (Calcutta), India to Maafushi Island is an approximately 9- hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight; or do a combination of train, bus, taxi, and flight. You'll gain 0.5 hours traveling from Kolkata (Calcutta) to Maafushi Island due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Kolkata (Calcutta) in August, plan for a bit cooler days and about the same nights in Maafushi Island: temperatures range from 36°C by day to 30°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Sat) to allow time to travel to Male.

Male

The tiny but densely populated city of Male represents a contrast to the laid-back beach resorts found in much of the rest of the Maldives.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Hulhumale Beach and Artificial Beach. And it doesn't end there: look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas, browse the eclectic array of goods at Male Fish Market, admire the striking features of Hukuru Miskiiy (Old Friday Mosque), and examine the collection at National Museum.

For traveler tips, photos, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Male trip itinerary builder website.

Use the Route module to find suitable travel options from Maafushi Island to Male. Expect a daytime high around 36°C in August, and nighttime lows around 30°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 1st (Tue) to allow time for travel back home.
