Planning a self-guided trip to the Maldives can take you to Toddoo Island.
And it’s good that you chose this paradise place. Among the variety of islands in this country, Toddu can be distinguished by the following pleasant moments for the budget tourist:
- the closest location of the island to the airport in Male. At the same time, you will not swim in the dirty water that accumulates off the coast of Male itself. The island is far enough away for you to take Bounty style photos;
- a small area of the island, which gives the feeling of your sole presence, as on the islands “1 island + 1 hotel”;
- availability of good and budget hotels on the island;
- minimum transfer price to the island.
Thoddoo is the island you will want to visit again if you love a serene beach holiday.
Arrival options on the island
All tourists who decide to visit the Maldives arrive at the airport of Male. It is from here that the start of the transfer to Toddu begins for you. Of course, no hotel on the island will be able to offer you an individual transfer option, because these are really budget Maldives. But don’t worry, as the transfer to the island is as simple as possible.
The best way for tourists is by speed boat
Speedboats in the Maldives are like a regular route taxi for any city dweller. This boat goes to Toddoo Island directly from the airport (you don’t need to go anywhere).
She departs from the pier at 16:00 and travels to Todd in just 1 hour and 15 minutes. Covering 60 kilometers in such a short time is really fast. But don’t forget that these boats don’t run on Fridays.
How to get to Toddoo Island in the Maldives
Such a transfer costs 35 dollars per person. Perhaps someone will think that it is expensive, but you do not know how much a seaplane transfer to a remote island costs or how much time you will have to spend on a transfer on other floating means of transportation. The names of the boats Nasru speed or Ramzu, and where they depart, you can check at the counters at the airport.
We hasten to note that you can return back to the airport on the same boat. She also runs from Todd every day, except Friday, but leaves at 7 am so that everyone has time for the desired flights.
Fruit (night) ferry – expensive and angry
If you want maximum savings and you do not mind your efforts and time, then this option will be ideal for you. A long night trip at a cost of $ 10 will be a joy to the most economical traveler. But this type of transport is not so simple. It runs from Male only on Fridays, Sundays and Tuesdays, departing at 23:45 local time.
Of course, you can take the same ferry from Toddu to Male. Here the price will remain unchanged, but the schedule will change: Saturday, Monday, Wednesday, also at 23:45 local time.
Other travel options to Thoddoo
Of course, you can always get to the island by city ferry network or by private boat. A private transfer is very, very expensive, and city ferries are as difficult as possible, so we recommend using only the 2 named types of transfers.
