How to Reach

By Air

The closest major airport is Male International Airport (MLE / VRMM).This airport has international and domestic flights from Male, Maldives and is about 140 km from the center of Naifaru, Maldives.Another major airport is Hanimaadhoo Airport (HAQ / VRMH), which has domestic flights from Hanimaadhoo, Maldives and is 147 km from Naifaru, Maldives.

By Ferries

Powerboats of varying designs and sizes have become almost a new culture in the Maldives, especially with the advent of a serious tourism industry in the country. In a country where the International Airport is on an island all by itself, and where all the tourist resorts are on separate islands, the Speed Boat have come into its own in a manner that is purely Maldivian. In addition, the Speed Boat performs well in its more conventional roles in recreational activities like pleasure cruising and water skiing.
