All of the Resorts in the Lhaviyani atoll can be reached by seaplane from Velena International Airport, which takes 20-30 minutes. Speedboat transfers are available at a few resorts which normally would take a couple of hours and are not advised as the sea is usually rough when crossing Male atoll to Lhaviyani atoll.
