So calculate your hassle.

Staying overnight in a local hotel [I think there is only 1 option] or hassle with flight.

I personally would rather overnight in a different country.

What are your options?

Yes. It's a $1-$2 boat ride and a short walk to the hotel.

You can catch a boat from outside the airport terminal.

The boat ride is approximately 5 minutes and the walk thereafter is another few minutes. It's as easy as it gets .

You should contact the hotel you'll be staying in to see if they will cover the night stay and if they can provide/arrange transportation.

Contact the hotel you'll be staying in, I believe some might provide lodging.

Forgot to mention you can take a car ride as well, the bridge connecting the airport to the main island is open.


Regardless there aren't to many options for decent hotels on the main island, search Google.

And sleep over in Male?

Who is traveling with you and would they feel uncomfortable to spend the night in a 2 star local lodge in Pakistan or Egypt? I loved my trip to the Maldives but would much rather add an NYC-SFO flight than spend the night in Male. The magic of the Maldives is being whisked to the hotel lounge, going on an awesome seaplane and then basically landing in fantasy island. You want to throw a night in Pakistan into that magical experience? I would postpone a Trip rather than stay in Male. My BIL went last year and arrived on the late Cathay Pacific flight and his wife said shed rather not come back again if it had to be on an evening flight. Even the nicest hotels are ghetto (they booked theirs through the Conrad). Id LOVE to go back to the Maldives but not with an overnight in Male, a dirty, crowded Islamic fundamentalist island...just giving you another perspective.
