Male time is currently 4 hours ahead of uk time (bst - so 5 hours gmt). Some islands have their own daylight saving time and add an hour. Not sure if Vilamendhoo is one of them.

HI,

To add to what Ian says, the islands that usually add an hour are in my experience the islands serviced by seaplane transfers. Therefore I would bet my last pound that Vilamendhoo does indeed add an extra hour onto Male time.

Cheers

Olhuveli also does this, although it was a speedboat tranfer. On our second visit to the Maldives (Biyadhoo), I mistakenly assumed that ALL the islands added the extra hour on, so I was running an hour early for everything on the first day! Very confused. lol!

it is a bit confusing...islands in the same atoll do it differently - Angaga for example doesn't.

Invariably when you arrive and check in, you do so in reception - and there is always a clock. I always check it to be on the safe side :-)

Hi

According to the Vilamendhoo website, the current local time is 13:58, which puts it just 4 hours ahead of BST.i.e same as Male.
