Due to Covid, there is currently only ONE affordable way of reaching the island – this is to join the ICom speedboat to Maafushi and then transit there to Fulidhoo. This is very simple. They can pick you up at the airport (they’ll have a sign) and then go directly to Maafushi, which is an island halfway between the airport and Fulidhoo – there you’ll transit to Fulidhoo with the same company so it’s very easy. On the way back, it’s the same process. Please study the schedule below carefully when choosing flights:
