ARENA BEACH HOTEL – LOCATION

 

Location Information


Arena Beach Hotel in Maafushi island is located 14 kilometers away from the Velana International Airport. The island is accessible either by speedboats or scheduled ferryboats from Male or the airport. There are many coral reefs, dive points, sandbanks, luxury resorts, and numerous tourist attractions.

Basic Facts about Maafushi Island

“Maa-fuushi” is a local name derived from the combination of 2 words: “Maa” which means big, and “fushi” which means the island. “The Big Island” may be its nickname, but Maafushi is an average sized island with 1200 metres in length and 250 metres in its width. You can walk around the island in less than one hour.

The native language of the Maldives is called “Dhivehi” which is a mix of Arabic and Sri Lankan Language. However, the English language is commonly and widely used all around the Maldives.

Since Maafushi is a local island, an appropriate dressing is required in the island. Commonly acceptable dress code in the island include shorts, shirts, vests, jeans, pants, and other casual clothes. Bathing suits like a bikini is not allowed at anywhere in the island except for private beach. Transparent and see-through dresses are also not allowed at anywhere in the island.


Lively Locals

One third of the local population of Maafushi is directly engaged in fishing activities. They use a traditional Maldivian method called the pole and line fishing. The fishermen would stand on the rear of the boat, holding their poles with barbless hooks over the water. Once fish comes near the pole, the fisherman will use momentum to lift the fish out of the water, throwing it overhead so it would land on the boat. At dawn, they will make their way back to the island where the villagers are waiting to buy fresh catch.


Local Tourism & Guest Houses

The island developed into a tourist destination with the emergence of the local guest houses. It began with residential houses refurbished into rented apartments for budget tourists and backpackers. Then, small investments grew into multi-million dollar investments. Now, hotels attract wealthy investors, and Arena Beach Hotel is one of Maafushi’s investments.

Things to Do at Arena Beach Hotel

The long stretch of white sandy beach, the crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean, and the treasured house reef all makes Maafushi a perfect location to host numerous recreational and adventurous activities.
