Local transport + Food in Gan / Gan International Airport

Hello Friends,

I am backpacker traveler visiting Gan Island in Nov'17. I have booked resort in Addu which is almost 14 km far from Gan International Airport.What would be cheapest mode of transportation to travel such distance.Hotel transport is bit expensive for me :). Also would there be vegetarian options available? Whats average rate for descent buffet.

Thanks :)

Hi welcome to the forum

When you visit a resort island the transport offered by the island is usually your only option. You wont have any problems finding food suitable for vegetarians in the Maldives...

I think you will find Addu is a local island so perhaps you have booked a guesthouse.

Good Luck

As Ange said Addu is a local island I read resort and didn't read the name.

I still recommend using the transfer offered for logistical reason's.

When we visited Equator Village (in Gan), there was a mix up in our transfer to the resort, but another guest who lived in Addu just called a local taxi which was quite cheap. A bit of internet research and you might be able to find the details of a taxi in Addu/Gan that you can connect with when you arrive.

Most other resorts are on segregated islands so you need a boat transfer and those are not plentiful or cheap (as the resort lays them on). But Gan/Maradhoo/Hithadhoo (when you say "Addu", I assume you mean "Addu City Square" in Hithadhoo) are all connected by a 8 km Link Road so there is a fair amount of motor vehicle traffic to get around, and (like I said) a number of taxis available.
