There a speedboat will take you on a 30-minute cruise to Club Maldives on the small Funamadua island in the Gaafu Alifu Atoll – welcome to your dream holiday.
You can also reach Club Noonu by airplane, with a 35-minute flight to Ifuru. There a speedboat will take you on a 45-minute cruise to Club Noonu on the Orivaru island in the Noonu Atoll. Would you like a spectacular start to your holiday? For a surcharge, you can even take a seaplane for the last step, allowing you to admire from above the lagoon where you’ll be staying.
The Maldives is an island state in the Indian Ocean and a spectacular place for your holidays. Here you can learn what else you need to know about the Maldives before you travel:
A general rule: At around 30 °C, the Maldives are tropically hot throughout the year. And with an average temperature of 28 °C, you can enjoy swimming in the ocean year-round. However, the wind and precipitation depend on the monsoons. The southwest monsoon covers the Maldives in rain from May to October. In June and July, holidaymakers can expect intense rainfall, thunderstorms and strong winds. During the rest of the rainy period, the showers tend to be heavy but brief, then the clouds clear for the sunshine again. This means that a beach holiday is certainly possible even during these months.
The best time to travel is between November and April when the northeast monsoon brings the dry period. Then the Maldives pamper you with eight or nine hours of sunshine each day, with a few picturesque clouds at most.
The Maldives consist of several atolls and over a thousand islands, of which about 220 are inhabited by locals and 144 are used for tourism. Every one of them is home to the distinctive flora and fauna of the island state. Due to the scarcity of fresh water and space, only a few types of animals and plants are native to the Maldives. On the islands, you can see geckos and lizards scurrying through the bushes, parrots and herons flying over the coconut trees and sometimes at night, you can even spot a flying fox hanging from a tropical banyan tree. If you want to get a truly authentic sense of the Maldives, you can also visit islands away from the typical tourist locations. Join the Dhivehi in a tea house, visit a fruit plantation or enjoy the silence of completely untouched beaches on Dhigurah, Maafushi or Thoodoo.
The coral reefs of the Maldives are among the largest in the world and home to all kinds of life. Colourful surgeonfish, clownfish and parrotfish swim alongside turtles, shrimp and crabs. Manta rays and whale sharks also enjoy the crystal-clear waters off the Maldives islands.
... the islands and towns inhabited by the Dhivehi are especially attractive sights. Most notably, the capital Malé. Malé is idyllic and densely populated. The narrow alleys and small streets form a labyrinth in which a new discovery awaits around every corner. This includes the Singapore Bazaar, for example, where you can buy native handicrafts and authentic souvenirs of your holiday in the Maldives.
Be sure to take a stroll through Sultan Park and visit the adjacent National Museum. You could also take a look at the Islamic Centre – the name of the largest mosque of the Maldives. With an impressive golden dome and a 40-metre high minaret, Malé’s landmark draws tourists from all over the world.
In addition to Malé, the southernmost island of the Maldives offers a very special experience: To reach Gan, you have to cross the Equator. In an instant, you are suddenly in the southern hemisphere. Gan is also connected to other the islands of the Addu Atoll, so that you can conveniently visit the more tranquil native islands.
