It is quite close to the capital city of Malé, thirty-seven kilometers from the capital is less than 45 minutes away by a common speedboat, which will cost you between 20 and 25 dollars.
It is essential to book the transfer in advance, either through your hotel, the boats leave from the pier opposite Bank of Maldives, Malé, and the payment is in cash at the hotel reception or on board, a cheaper option is the public ferry , which costs about $ 1.50, the ferry doesn’t go on Mondays and Fridays.
