What time difference is it between meedhupparu & home?

The brochure says maldives is generally 5 hours ahead but that some of the islands operate their own time difference so just wondering if it's still 5 hours ahead there?

Thanks ;-)

Some resort islands have their own time which is 1 hour ahead of Male time. I don't know if Meed operate "resort time", others may be able to answer this..........

It may depend on what time of year you go, but we were there in December and the island was one hour ahead of Male, therefore sun sets at 6 pm instead of 5 pm !!

Hi,

We went to Meedhupparu in the month of September, and they were one hour ahead of male time then.

most of the islands have their own artificial time to make sunrise and sunset a bit more convenient for their guests . the "normal" equatorial times are of course 6 am and 6 pm ... adjusting it to 7 and 7 works a little better in a typical "tourist day".
