Top Reasons to Visit the Maldives – An Island Nation Like No Other

The lovely Maldives Islands offer a host of entrancing attractions for the visitor. Given below are several good reasons to visit these beautiful islands which offer something for every traveller.


A Distinctive Culture

Although the Maldives are renowned across the globe for its delightful scenery, these islands also boast a unique, exotic and warm culture. With Sunni Islam being the predominant religion, you will see that the native culture is a blend of Sinhalese, South Indian and Arab influences. Visitors will find that the capital city Male contains a host of engrossing cultural highlights, including the Presidential Palace, National Museum, Grand Friday Mosque, Sultan Park and the Male Fish Market. Despite the fact that it may not be as eye-catching as some of the resorts, you will see that this city is a vibrant metropolis that is rewarding to explore.


Culinary Pleasures

Visitors to the Maldives will find that they will have the opportunity to enjoy outstanding culinary experiences in the islands. From upscale gourmet repasts to more casual meals the Maldives will provide you with a splendid selection of international cuisine that will tantalize your taste buds. Typically you will find that the well-known resorts offer internationally themed cuisine, featuring everything from Italian specialities to delectable preparations of succulent seafood. On the other hand, the locally based venues will often provide authentic native meals that reflect the local traditions. Generally, you will find that Maldivian cuisine prominently features fish and coconut in its dishes.


The Lap of Luxury

Since the economy of the Maldives relies heavily on tourism, it is not surprising that it conforms to the global trend of providing luxurious and enjoyable experiences. You will find that out of the 200 Maldivian islands that are inhabited, close to 90 are occupied by luxurious resorts. Since each resort is located on its own island, it is not surprising that the Maldives offers seclusion and intimacy for the visitor. Additionally, many Maldives luxury resorts offer excellent spa facilities where guests will be pampered with the best of treatments. If you are looking to enjoy such experiences Baros Maldives is amongst the options you can choose.


Idyllic Scenery

There is no doubt that, with its lovely surroundings featuring shimmering clear waters lapping on the soft inviting sands with picturesque palm trees swaying above, the Maldives Islands are one of the world's most exotic holiday destinations. You will find that these pristine islands with their unsullied, unblemished natural attractions offer one of the most appealing environments on the globe in which to relax and unwind. As you chill out in the picture postcard like surroundings only the rustle of the sea breezes in the branches of the palm trees will suggest that you are actually in reality.


The Undersea Wonders

It would be quite wrong to get the impression that all the wonders of the Maldives are situated above the surface of the waters. This is because the marvellous undersea environment of the islands will rival the most acclaimed marine surroundings on the globe. If you choose to go diving or snorkelling in the waters of the Maldives you will encounter a magical undersea world that is sure to capture the imagination of the visitor. You will have the opportunity to observe and experience a myriad of exotic sea creatures beneath the Maldivian waters. The splendid diving experiences they offer make sites like Banana Reef and Fish Head internationally renowned dive locations.
