What is the best way to travel around the Maldives?

The best way to get around the Maldives depends on your destination. Since the Maldives is composed of many islands, ferries and private boats for rent are a reliable way to get around. High-speed boats are a transport service offered by many resorts in the Maldives to meet arrivals at the airport. Domestic flights are also another suitable option for getting around, especially to provincial centers like Dharavandhoo, Kooddoo, Kaadedhdhoo, Hanimaadhoo, Kudahuvadhoo, Thimarafushi, and Fuvahmulah. The use of busses and taxis to get around in the Maldives will depend on the island you are visiting since islands large enough to support automobiles are few. Male, Fuvahmulah, and Hulhumale are some islands large enough to accommodate vehicles and have roads of good condition. Maldives Transport and Contracting Company is responsible for operating bus routes on these islands. Compared to taxis, buses are a more affordable alternative to get around the Maldives. Trains are not an option for getting around the Maldives because no railroads are available.

Does a US citizen need a passport or visa to fly to the Maldives?

A visa is, however, not essential. You also need a return ticket on entry and evidence of sufficient funds. If you plan on visiting the Maldives for up to 30 days, you need a visitor visa.
