BIOT (Sailors meeting point)

information about maldives  Male - Maldives

In theory you need permission to get to the Chagos archipelago, composed by 65 atolls, either by USA or British military authorities,
You will not be allowed to visit Diego Garcia atoll, in the Chagos archipelago, because of the US military base, the greatest base outside USA, with over 4000 soldiers (it is expected that Chago people, the Chagossiens, will go back soon to their original home from Mauritius), but to call in Solomon, Peros Banhos and Egmont atolls and stay there for some time, is tolerated. Those places have become today a sailors meeting point for the yachts crossing the Indian Ocean. The English Army will visit you to your sailing boat to charge you 80 US Dollars as “tax”.
No regular transport service exists yet to Chagos, but you can arrange a private transport there from Male, in Maldives Islands.

Address: British Indian Ocean Territory

Phone: + no available
Price: exclusive
