The Maldives has long been known as a honeymoon spot for couples but the country has lots to do even for families, groups of friends and even for solo-travelers. Reethi Beach is located on the Fonimagoodhoo Island, lying to the north-east of Baa Atoll (the administrative division of the country of Maldives).

How To Reach Reethi Beach?

The Reethi Beach map shows you a tiny island called Fonimagoodhoo, where the beach destination is located. You can reach the beach by Malé, the Maldivian capital by flight. Once you reach Malé, a domestic carrier flight will fly you to Dharavandhoo (an island of Baa Atoll) in about twenty minutes after which you’ll board a speedboat that drops you right at Reethi beach which will take another fifteen minutes.

The second option is to take a seaplane that takes you over the turquoise blue Maldivian waters and drops you directly to Reethi. On reaching Reethi, you disembark from the flight on to a pontoon (a boat used for inland river transfers) while the Dhoni boat is on its way to pick you up. Depending on your accommodation, these boats will drop you off to the close to your resort.
