Secondly, Dhigurah features a unique shape with 3.6 km wide and a 300 m wide body, hence the name "Dhigurah", translated to long island in the Maldivian language. Within this unique shaped island, Dhigurah also features one of the most beautiful beaches on the Maldives with a sandbank at the south end of the island.
Lastly, most of Dhigurah is blessed and covered with lush tropical vegetation, putting the icing on the cake to an already ideal island in Maldives. Amidst these lush tropical greenery and white sandy beaches, you can find stunning Dhigurah guesthouses offering comfortable accommodations, guiding you to a spectacular holiday in the Maldives.

The speedboat takes approximately 1 hour and 40 minutes to reach Dhigurah from Male'.

Slow Ferry to DhigurahThis is without a doubt the cheapest way costing you under US$ 5 per person per way but it is also the slowest with a 7 hour transfer time. The slow ferry also operates three days from Male' to Dhigurah and another three days for Dhigurah to Male' ferries.
Best way to travel from Male' to DhigurahThe best way to travel from Male' to Dhigurah would be the speedboat option. Taking the slow ferry, although extremely cheap, also means that almost a day would be gone in traveling to Dhigurah and you also have to be mindful about connecting your flight with the slow ferry schedules. On the other hand, the domestic flight option is certainly the fastest option. However, the price tag that comes with it is not the most attractive when it comes to an affordable holiday experience in a Maldives local island, especially when there are other better alternatives like the speedboat option. The speedboat transfer to Dhigurah has the most optimum cost and timings out of the three transfer options available.
