Where to find a comprehensive ferry schedule?  (1 Answer)

I will arrive at 9am, guess very unlikely to catch the ferry to the most popular resident island Maafushi at 10am from the airport. I haven't decided upon which resident island to stay and thus I wonder if there is a comprehensive ferry schedule for all ferries leaving Mele? May be I can choose an island that I don't need to wait too long at Mele?

any suggestions on the island to stay and the ferry schedule? Many thanks!

Maldives inter-island transfer (late evening and Friday)  (2 Answers)

I know that Friday is holiday and with very limited transportation. My initial plan is to arrive on a Monday (around 8:30pm) and leave on Friday (around 9:30pm).
1. Is it possible to get to the island (haven't decide which one yet but would definitely not those with expensive one-island-one-hotel) when I arrive that late (i.e., 8:30pm)? There is another early morning flight but I am on waiting list.
2. Do I need to change my schedule to avoid leaving on Friday as there may not be public ferry to Male'?
Hope to get advice soon as I need to confirm the flights. Thanks!

They are always very responsive to emails.
If anyone has used this company, or knows someone that had experience with them, please let me know.

Not staying more than one night as Male is smaller than Singapore and I have no money to pay for a resort stay for more than one night. I hope there is no heavy rain and no flooding during this month. There is still plenty of sunshine on each day, right?

May-July - Which is best?  (3 Answers)

Hi All,

We are thinking of visiting the Maldives between May-July 2017 for 2 weeks and appreciate this is "rainy season". We were provisionally thinking 1st May 2017. Just looking at all the climate charts it appears May has the most rain and most rainy days on average.

Anyone got any views on which is the best on average?

Many thanks
Jonathan

Turkish Airlines?  (6 Answers)

Hi, me and my bf are planning to visit Maldives next month. Apparently, Turkish Airlines has the best price but it has 13 hours of layover in Istanbul. We learnt that they give a free tour of Istanbul if you have more than 10 hours layover which confused us very much. I heard good things about Turkish Airlines before like good food and comfy seats but still can't decide because of the layover time. What do you think? Thank you!

Male island or airport island before early flight  (6 Answers)

I have a 9 a.m. flight out of the Maldives, meaning I will have to leave Ukalhas/Thooddo the day before. But should I spend my last night at Male Island or the airpost island? Male sounds most tempting, but will I get a ferry from there early in the morning? I think I would spend the last day exploring (if anything to see) or on the beach/by the pool. To be honest I do not really know what Male and airport islands have to offer.

Or does anyone have suggestions how to leave Ukulhas or Thooddo during the night and still catch my Sunday morning plane? Private speed boat is not an option, I will go by shared speed boat or local ferry.

Thanks from Lena
