How to Get : Transfers

Fehendhoo is 100 km from Malé International Airport (VIA), and 35 km from the domestic airport on the island of Dharavandhoo (DRV). Get to Fehendhoo is best by public speedboat Male-Goidhoo. Upon arrival at Malé airport, you will be met by staff and escorted to the speedboat. The journey time is 1.45 - 2 hours, depending on the weather. After reaching Goidhoo, passengers are taken to Fehendhoo by a small boat, which takes about 5-10 minutes. The ticket price is 33 USD per passenger one-way plus 10 USD for Goidhoo to Fehendhoo transfer. There is no ATM on Fehendhoo, so please stock cash in Malé.

A public speedboat from Male is leaving Willingly ferry terminal at 9 am on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Back to Malé at 13:30, on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays. If you travel a large group, it's best way to book a private speed boat from Male airport. The rental price is $900-1000/boat

The second option (less budgetary) is by local airline from Malé airport to Dharavandoo airport. Flights are run daily, the journey time is 25 minutes, the ticket price is $ 95 one way. From Dharavandoo airport to Fehendhoo by speedboat, the journey time is 40 minutes, cost for renting a boat is USD 150-200. We recommend booking airplane tickets through your guest house, not on the airline's website - it will be much cheaper!

There is one more option. There is a supply ferry going from Male to Goidhoo once a week on Sunday night (from Sunday to Monday). Usually it departs in the midnight, the journey takes about 5 hours. It goes back from Goidhoo on Saturdays at 5 AM.

Schedule and tariffs we recommend check with the host before your arrival in the Maldives.

The Island

A beautiful and clean island with soft white sands, Fehendhoo is measured 2.5 km long and an average of 200 meters wide. The actual number of inhabitants on Fehendhoo Island is no more than 100 people, and local children go to the school of the neighboring island of Goidhoo using a school boat instead of a school bus. Local residents are very helpful, sociable, smiling people. They have a very good attitude to tourists. There are 2 cafes, two minimarts and a hospital on the island. The village is in the eastern part of Fehendhoo, the rest of the interior is a dense jungle with beautiful, sandy, shady paths leading to pretty pocket beaches. You can ride around the island by bicycles that are provided free of charge in the guest house. Slow Wi-Fi on the island, so buy a sim-card with a mobile Internet at Male airport. The only drawback is the mosquitoes. Bring with you mosquito repellents.

The Beach

Stretching from west to east, Fehendhoo is known for it's beautiful white sandy beaches. In addition to the fact that near each guest house there is own bikini beach (clean daily) with comfortable sunbeds, pillows and beach towels, you can relax and sunbathing on beaches in the western part of the island and for a while become their sole owners. The beaches of the south coast facing to a clean turquoise lagoon with rare coral patches, while the north side is open to the ocean and is backed by an extensive house reef with good snorkeling, even near the shore you can spot a vibrant marine life and healthy corals. The northern beaches are wider, in contrast to the pocket areas of white sand on the south side. On the beach there are many shady vegetation, ideal to hide from the sun on a hot day. In general, the beaches are stunning, you will have umbrellas, beds, towels, kayaks, as well as snorkelling gear.

The island's estern tip is adjacent to a sand bar with a view of the Goidhoo Island on the horizon.

There are two cafes in the village, but this food is mainly for locals, including traditional snacks, so outside the hotel it is difficult to find a place to eat.

Talented chefs in guest houses prepare a balanced, delicious and varied dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Expect huge portions of your favorites, fruits and freshly squeezed juices, as well as local, Maldivian food, including fresh seafood and fish. Clean tables and nice setting, and you can even order dinner right on the beach.

The restaurant at Tropical Village is open all day, with soft sandy floors, comfortable outdoor seating in the garden or perhaps on the beach at the luxurious lounge area for more romantic moments with loved ones. Beach barbecue, seafood dinners and special dinners are held regularly. We recommend you to try: Spring Fish Soup, Lemongrass Coconut Shrimp (Delicate shrimp and noodles inside a package with fragrant coconut, curry and lemon grass), Salad with octopus with herbs in Maldives style. Breakfast and dinner are served as a buffet, and offers an excellent à la carte menu for lunch.

In Fehendhoo Stay, the chef is an excellent culinary expert and portions are simply huge.
