Top 7 attractions in Maldives - Explore in Excitement!

The Maldives offers some excellent getaways with many different areas to explore, let's look at the top attractions from the massive selection available in the Maldives.


Fua Mulaku

Fua Mulaku can be found in the Maldivian archipelago towards the southern province. Even though it is the tiniest of the atolls around with only one island, Fua Mulaki is the largest island in the Maldives. The island's incredibly fertile soil produces some of the most delicious fruit and vegetables that aren't grown anywhere else in the country. You'll find mangoes, oranges, and pineapples that are essential experiences.



Located in the South Nilandhoo Atoll, this island has what is considered one of the most mysterious mounds. Hawittas, as they are called, are considered to be the ruins of ancient Buddhist temples, however, this hasn't been confirmed. Kudahuvadhoo is also home to an old mosque that showcases some of the finest masonries you'll ever find.


Mirihi Islands

The Mihiri Island is a quarantined island that borrows its name from a local flower. The island showcases an exclusive house reef with a gorgeous and pristine beach. Considered one of the most popular tourist beaches in all of the Maldives, Mihiri Island is perfect for anyone in search of a little serenity or even for couples on their honeymoon. The island is full of shady palm trees and is lined with snow like white sand that is simply pleasing to the senses.


Nalaguraidhoo Beach

Nalahuraidhoo Beach is considered to be one of the most frequented beaches in all of the Maldives. It is comprised of breathtaking clear azure water along with glistening white sand and beautiful surroundings. A visit to this beach is a must for any traveller since it leaves most of its visitors speechless and in awe of its scenic beauty.


Grand Friday Mosque

The Grand Friday Mosque is a massive tourist attraction in Male and is the Islamic Centre of the country. Therefore it features some distinct and beautiful works of architecture. Formally called Masjid-al-Sultan Muhammad Thakurufaanu Al Auzam, it is the largest mosque in the country, drawing in many pilgrims as well as architecture enthusiasts. The mosque is open daily from 9 am to 5 pm and is free to enter. If you're on the lookout for Maldives luxury resorts, you'll come across many upon many, like Baros Maldives for instance.


Maldives National Museum

The museum houses some of the country's most historic artefacts that highlight its culture and importance, such as coins, furniture, royal antiques, clothing, armaments, and embellishments. If history and culture is something you enjoy observing, a visit to the Maldives National Museum is a must. The museum is open Sunday to Thursday from 9 am to 5 pm.
