A more cost-effective and convenient option is to go by speedboat. This is a particularly popular option with families who tend to choose resorts closer to Malé airport and may wish to avoid additional wait time.

The speedboat transfer area is just a short walk from the Arrivals Hall and speedboat transfers are scheduled around arriving international flights, so there is minimal waiting around prior to your journey to your accommodation.

All of the hotels and resorts in the North and South Malé atolls can be reached by speedboat, with journey times varying between a quick 10 minutes and exhilarating hour.

Speedboat transfers can operate in the day and at night, giving you more flexibility compared to the air transfers. You can choose between shared or private boats. Clients should be warned that weather conditions can also affect speedboat transfers.
