10 reasons why the Maldives is the best vacation destination - Explore a picturesque paradise

From far stretched mesmeric beaches, breathtaking surroundings, candlelit dinners on the beach to stilted water villas, Maldives is all about the tropical charm of nature. Its location in the middle of the Indian Ocean along with its 26 atolls creates a wonderful aquamarine world. Read on to know why the Maldives should be your next travel destination.


Exciting watersports

While you enjoy and soak up breathtaking surroundings, do not forget to enjoy some of the best moments in life. You can try out a range of water sport activities such as jet-skiing, snorkelling, diving, kayaking, canoeing and many more. Seabobbing will add a new level of fun for all water enthusiasts.


Glorious Sunsets

What better way to witness the unrivalled beauty of this island paradise than soaking up a stunning sunset view! Just lie down on the beach or go on a dolphin watching sunset cruise to take in the golden hour. At the coming of the dusk, the island comes alive with fiery reds, vibrant oranges and yellow.



Undoubtedly one of the top reasons to visit the Maldives! These sparkling blue oceans are perfect not only for honeymooners but also for all leisure travellers who seek a soothing holiday. In order to make the best of your beach holiday, try to visit the Maldives from December to April when the humidity is low.


Swim with the sharks

Want to get up close and personal with sharks? If you are based at a resort like The Westin Maldives Miriandhoo Resort, you can plan a fantastic dive excursion to swim with majestic whale sharks and small reef sharks. Although it is tempting to touch, always make sure to keep a respectful distance from the sharks.


Vibrant culture

Maldivian culture is colourful, vibrant and diverse due to the infusion of different cultures. Bodu Beru is a popular folk dance and you can spot it during an evening on the beach. If you wish to mix and mingle with the locals in order to learn and understand their culture, you should not miss the Dhoni boat ride. However, it's better to know a few phrases like 'Assalaamu Alaikum' (hello), 'Aharen beynun Wi-Fi' (I need Wi-Fi) and 'shukuriyaa' (thank you) to communicate with locals who cannot understand your language.


A secluded gateway

For those looking for a tranquil hideaway with a bit of secluded luxury, Maldives will be an ideal choice to count on. Romance never runs dry here. Be it a picnic alongside a lagoon or dining under stars, Maldives will fulfil all your holiday desires.


Culinary delights

The island's tropical oceanic location and small dimension ensure coconut, fruit and fish. How about savouring a spicy Maldivian curry with Tuna while enjoying the splendid sea breeze? Garudhiya is a delicious seafood dish prepared using coconut, rice, chilli, lime, onions and curry leaves.


Spa therapy

After a day of enjoying water sports and spending time exploring the island, you can look forward to a soothing spa therapy to rejuvenate. Indulge in authentic therapies overlooking the breathtaking seascapes to embrace simple luxuries of life.


Architectural Heritage

The Grand Friday Mosque is a must visit to catch a glimpse of wood carvings and Arabic calligraphy. The amazing wooden carpet, ornate chandeliers and carved wooden door are important highlights of this place. You should definitely visit the Hukuru Miskiiy which is famous for its lacquer work, wood carvings and carved coral-stone work.



In order to grasp the purest essence of Maldivian lifestyle, travelling in the capital city of Male is essential. Plan a visit to Hulhumale to swim with the fishes and discover wide varieties of coral reefs. Rent a scooter to explore the less-explored corners of this wonderful capital city.
