5 tips for first-time visitors to the Maldives - A few things to help you start planning

The Maldives is quite a popular place in the world, and if you are a first time visitor, here are some things that might help you out.


The weather in the Maldives

Being a tropical paradise island, Maldives has just about two seasons throughout the year of which one is the summer season and other, the monsoon. During the summer the temperature in the water is about 20 to 25 degrees celsius and is pleasant to swim or dive into. During the monsoon you would not find it dropping down too low, it stays about twenty degrees celsius all the time thus making it quite pleasant. The only thing you will have to worry about are the activities that might get disturbed during the monsoon season but if you are planning for a less expensive trip to the Maldives then travelling during off-peak season is a good idea as the only thing you will have to put up with the lower cost holiday is rainfall and the less clear visibility underwater.


Accommodation in the Maldives

Though you will find a Maldives 5 star resort or hotel on each and every island in this country, they tend to get booked pretty soon. If you are planning a holiday to the Maldives and opting to stay at a property the likes of The Nautilus Maldives, it is better for you to book your accommodation and secure your stay at least four weeks or two months ahead of your trip. Doing this will also avoid any last-minute booking hassles you might encounter and will also let you focus on planning the other activities and other parts of your trip.


Water sports in the Maldives

No trip to this country is complete without you stepping in to the water or doing something near the water. Apart from the long walks and the beautiful sunsets you will also be able to have a few adventurous activities during your holiday in the Maldives. Jet skiing, snorkelling, deep-sea explorations and glass-bottom boat riding are a few things you can do while you are in the Maldives. If you want a relaxing kind of activity after all these adventurous things, you could try your hand at kayaking in the deep blue waters.


The food in the Maldives

When you are a holiday at this destination do not forget to ask for and taste the local food. The Maldivian food is highly influenced by the neighbouring countries such as India and Sri Lanka and you will find the food here is quite spicy and they tend to use a lot of coconut in most of their dishes. Some of the main ingredients used in these dishes are also seafood, obviously.


Dining under the stars

If you are travelling to the Maldives with your romantic partner, then there are so many things you can do to create memories the last for a lifetime. One of the most favourite things couples like to do in the Maldives is dining by the beach under the stars. You can discuss with your hotel and set up the dinner right at the beach and have one of the most romantic nights of your life with your loved one.
