Maldives local transport
The Maldives Island has its own national airline that flies on a
regular basis and takes the passengers to the four airstrips in the
outer atolls. For visiting the remote island resorts, there are
helicopters and seaplanes.
The most popular local means of transport in Maldives is a water
vessel powered by a diesel engine called 'Dhoni'. Dhoni is
especially gaining momentum amongst the diving groups. For longer
trips, there are large size boats called Vedis. These days, the
tourist resort islands also provide their own boats for carrying
their clients. The speedboats can also be hired for personal use.
Taxis are also a common means of transport in Maldives.
Available in Male, motorcycles can also be hired for exploring the
scenic beauty of Maldives.
