Maafushi Island

Scuba & Snorkeling · Swim with Dolphins · Water Sports
With plenty of things to do, Maafushi Island has a bustling, upbeat atmosphere and a holiday resort vibe. Fairly big by Maldives standards but still very compact, Maafushi is almost entirely developed and thrives on the dual industries of tourism and fishing. It's easy to get the lay of the land here, since you can walk from one end to the other in less than half an hour. The sandbar north of the island boasts warm, clear waters perfect for snorkeling and swimming. Visitors interested in a little tipple will need to wade out to a floating bar to grab a drink, as alcohol isn't allowed on the island itself. When you get back to shore, try a traditional Maldivian fish soup, served with rice and salads. To personalize your trip to Maafushi Island, create itinerary details specific to you using our Maldives trip planner.
