Getting to

COMO Cocoa Island

COMO Cocoa Island, known locally as Makunufushi, is located among South Malé’s coral atolls. Importantly, guests do not need seaplanes to access the island; it is just a 40-minute speedboat transfer from the international airport on Malé (the main island). In addition, COMO Cocoa Island is located in the opposite direction to the majority of resorts (concentrated in the North Malé atoll) and occupies a quieter, undisturbed area.

 By Air

Due to the isolated nature of the Maldives, almost all travellers arrive by air. There is one international airport, situated on the island of Hulhulé, which is two kilometres across the water from the capital, Malé.

There are many scheduled and charter flights to the region. Providers change frequently according to the time of year and it is advisable to check with your local travel agent.

There is also an international airport on the southern island of Gan. Gan is situated on the southernmost island of the Addu Atoll. From Malé, it takes approximately 70 minutes to fly to Gan.

Private air travel around the islands and to and from India can also be arranged through the Maldives’ national airline, Maldivian (www.maldivian.aero; -960 331 5201).
