5 hours between landing and domestic flight - what to do?

by adelinemmc Online Now Jan 4, 2012 at 4:01 AM

Hi all
I land in Male airport and my domestic flight is 5 hours later. I have already been to the Maldives and my memory of the domestic terminal is not great. There is basically nothing to do.
There will be 2 of us with a small backpack and a big diving bag each.
Any suggestion as to what to do, where we could go between landing & our domestic flight? Any idea where we could dump our bags for a few hours?
We don't necessaryly want a beach, just a nice place to wait for approx 3 hours until it's time to go to the domestic terminal. Best to stay on the airport island.
Any ideal welcome!
Tx.

    I would stay at airport having some [expensive] drink at airport's bar unless you have the bus to "domestic" terminal, which I believe is water-taxi terminal, waiting for you. unless it's changed lately, It's not doable to walk to there from airport.

    That's allright, I'm not going on honeymoon. In any case the article you linked to says it itself: "the resorts in its 1,200 islands are largely unaffected".
