Bathala is an island sold exclusively by an Italian tour Operator: Azemar, so the vacations are all-inclsive and therefore in the price transport from Male to Bathala is included.
You can choose to get there by boat or by sea-plane.
If you go by boat, be prepared for a rather long trip: it is almost 2 hours by fast-boat. And if the sea is rough, it can be quite unconfortable, so, if you suffer sea-sickness, do take some medicine to prevent it!
If you choose the sea-plane is a half-hour flight.
Seaplanes are fun! Seaplanes land near a platform a few minutes by boat from your island - and this is the least interesting part of the trip. The best part is the flight... barefooted pilots fly them very low so that you can enjoy other islands, resorts and sand banks in the middle of the ocean. Spectacular sights. We flew Maldivian Air taxi: 20 noisy and fun minutes from Hulule Airport to Bathala: they gave us ear-plugs!
