Male, Seaplane transfer, Land & Seascape of Hilton Iru Fushi
We took the morning flight from Singapore and landed at Male before noon. After exiting from the airport, with the help of a local guide, we proceeded to check in for our seaplane transfer. Thereafter, we boarded a mini van and headed towards the Seaplane Terminal which was just a short 8 min drive away.
Didn't have a chance to visit Male city at all as we didn't have time both to and fro journeys to make a tour. And we certainly didn't want to take a 45 min (one-way) seaplane journey just to take a look. If we choose an island that is nearer to Male, probably we could have spared some time.
Anyways, upon reaching the Seaplane (or Air Taxi) Terminal, we were ushered to a lounge to relax while waiting for our flight to Hilton Iru Fushi Resort & Spa.
This was the overview of Hilton Iru Fushi, quite a large island. In fact, one of the larger properties in the atolls.
Anyway, our host brought us to the Water Edge's Bar for our check-in.
Will do a run-through of the land and seascape of the island here. The photos were taken over the few days whenever there was great sunshine. In fact, it rained quite a fair bit (apparently the rainy season, afternoons on first, third and fourth day, night on second day).
We walked around the whole island one of the days, along the long stretches of beach.
Ok, this concludes my post. Will touch on the accommodation, food, spa and diving in the next few posts. Stay tuned!
