This alternative entails a 35-minute domestic transfer to the nearby Ifuru island airport, followed by a 20-minute speedboat ride.

Is a seaplane or domestic transfer better?

Usually, we advise choosing a seaplane transfer when traveling to You & Me Maldives.

Seaplanes are celebrated in the Maldives for providing awe-inspiring views owing to their low-altitude flights. It's an experience truly unlike any other and definitely worth experiencing at least once.

Nevertheless, there are distinct advantages to opting for a domestic transfer that may better suit your preferences. You might consider a domestic transfer if any of the following circumstances apply to your situation, but please note that the resort are unable to guarantee this option due to limited flights per day

  • International flights arriving in the Maldives after 3:30pm Malé time (seaplanes only fly during daylight).
  • You don't want to go on a seaplane, or you have limited mobility which would make it difficult.
  • You have a significant amount of luggage

Please note that the resort is unable to guarantee a domestic flight option due to limited flights per day and you may be required to stay overnight in Malé if arriving outside of seaplane flying hours.
