Best Time to Travel
The dry season (December to April) promises plenty of fun in the sun, and is without a doubt the most popular time to travel.  Divers may prefer to visit between May and November, where – despite an increase chance of rainfall – the water visibility is at its most impressive.

Getting there
Most European travel hubs offer connections to the Maldives’ international gateway at Malé International Airport. From here, your private island paradise at Gili Lankanfushi is only a 20-minute speedboat ride away.
