Located north of Dhaalu Atoll, Faafu Atoll is one of the smallest compared to other Maldives atolls. Filitheyo was the first resort opened and new resorts are under development. To the north is Alifu Dhaalu Atoll, Maamigili domestic airport is the closest air link to this atoll.
In Faafu the number of islands are less compared to most of the other parts. Fewer islands, fewer resorts. But there are big reefs and good dive spots in this atoll.
To travel Faafu Atoll islands you will need a seaplane transfer from Male’ Ibrahim Nasir International Airport. It is too far to conveniently travel by speedboat but if you really want to go by sea it takes about 3 hours. In terms of cost, chartering a speedboat would be cheaper for a group. For a couple the speedboat charges will be almost the same as seaplane.
