7 Pristine places to visit in the Maldives – The land of a thousand Islands!

With 1200 islands and 26 atolls, the archipelago of Maldives is the epitome of exotic! With the bluest of seas that stretch across for miles and the whitest of sandy beaches, The Maldives is a place unlike any other. But while it's most famous for its water sports, that's not the only avenue you can pursue in the Maldives.


A no digital media zone

If you're planning your vacation just to get away from the constant pressure of today's digitized world and the stress of having to stay connected all the time, then Mihiri Island is the place for you! This particular island has no televisions or radios, and save for a few communication devices, is a no digital media zone. Practice the art of keeping your phone away and truly relaxing here, while you pamper yourself at a spa and enjoy the best Maldivian cuisine.


The freshest Asian cuisine

The Biyadhoo Island in the South Malé Atoll is spread over 10 acres of land and is best known for its fresh organic produce as well as the art of scuba diving. Not so coincidentally, the name Biyadhoo translates to "Scuba Diving" as well. But try this destination, for the best of the best exotic fruits and Maldivian cuisine.


Street Shopping

There are two places that you can visit for your session of retail therapy. You can try the Majeedhee Magu, the main street of the capital of Malé, where you can shop for everything, from clothes to food to local arts and craft for that perfect take-home souvenir. If on the other hand, you're a night owl who likes the experience of walking down lit streets at night, indulging that shopaholic that you rarely do, then check out the North Malé Atoll. With plenty of cultural landmarks, like the Grand Friday Mosque, or the National Museum, the city also has the best night city experience.


A lesson in history – The National Museum

It is always best to educate yourself about the place you're visiting and learn about the locals and their culture. The National Museum carries artefacts of Maldivian history dating back to its origins. The building itself is a sight worth seeing considering that it was part of a 17th Century Royal Palace, and the architecture has been preserved as part of the sights in the museum. Located in Malé, the building features objects such as the Coral Stone head of the Buddha and other pieces.


Walks on the glowing Beach!

If you're looking for something a little more romantic, then the Maldivian beach at Vaadhoo Island is the place to be! This beach offers you the rare and exciting adventure of walking over glowing water. Filled with bioluminescent plankton that gives off a bluish glow, this is one mesmerizing sight. Forget the science behind t and enjoy the romance of the sight with your significant other!
Being a major tourist attraction there are many Resorts in the Maldives that you try out next time, like the Niyama Maldives and many more, so accommodation is no worry!


Diver's Paradise

Considering that the Maldives is basically an archipelago of islands, diving and other related activities are a favourite amongst visitors. The locale is very conducive to these aquatic activities and there are several places you can try diving and snorkelling from. The Fihalhohi Island on the South Kaafu Atoll is a great location for scuba divers as it is teeming with marine life. The HP reef at the North Malé Atoll is another such place if coral reefs are your target. The Banana Reef, also located at the North Malé Atoll is another such place.


The world underwater!

The Maldives also has underwater cruises that you can book to experience not just the world underwater, but also the experience of being in a submarine. This particular tour of the Indian Ocean waters is one that you must try out!
