Himandhoo is located a bit far from Male airport – approximately 89 kilometres. In any case, you’d have to take a ferry, so it would take you almost 2 hours to reach the island. There are mainly two routes that go to Himandhoo and may include transferring to another ferry. First, you can take a ferry from Male to Haggnaameedhoo island and from there take another ferry to Himandhoo. Haggnaameedhoo is close to Himandhoo.
The other way is to take a speedboat from Male to Rasdhoo and then take a ferry or speedboat to Himandhoo from Rasdhoo. You can also take a ferry to Rashdhoo from Male, but it could take you 3 to 4 hours to reach just Rasdhoo from Male in that case. Speedboats will, of course, cost more, but they take you to Rasdhoo within an hour.
Thankfully, the gracious hosts at Black Pearl also help guests travel to the island. Once you have booked your room, you should call the resort for help with the travel itinerary. The good news is that, at a separate price, Black Pearl offers airport shuttle service to all its guests. You just have to be at the airport and the good people from Black Pearl will come and pick you up. In that case, you can also fly to the Villa International Airport at Maamgili.
Not just airport shuttle, your hosts at the Black Pearl will also help you with any shuttle services throughout your trip. If you want to island hop, which is highly recommended when you are in the Maldives, during your stay you can ask your hosts to provide help for your adventurous travels.
Black Pearl’s advantage lies in the fact that it offers world-class facilities at an affordable price. So, you can enjoy all the luxuries of the Maldives without having to push your budget.
