How to reach Maldives

Try not to give the long flight a chance to drive you off from your honeymoon in Maldives. Flights aren't as terrible or as costly as you may think. You'll most likely have 1-2 layovers depending upon where you are coming from. While seeking flights you'll need to search for flights to Male (MLE), however, it might be less expensive to fly into Colombo, Sri Lanka and to buy a flight to Maldives from that point. From the USA it will most likely take 16-24 hours to get to Maldives, and from India, the direct flights will take 2-3 hours approximately, however it will be so worth it, despite all the trouble. The Layover stops are Abu Dhabi UAE, Dubai UAE, and Colombo Sri Lanka.

All flights arrive at the Male International Airport (MLE), and from here you will get into a seaplane or speedboat to your Maldives resort. The location of some resorts is such that they are accessible only by flight and some offer a speedboat and flight choice in case if you settle for the speedboat we will highly suggest you take a one side trip on the seaplane as it provides a hilarious view of the islands and crystalline water. There are public ferries too in the Maldives however they don't go to any of the private Maldives resort islands so your only choice will be to book a speedboat or flight with the hotel. The hotel will book this for you and charge you; they work with the carrier to arrange flight times and everything.
