5 Things You Need to Know About Visiting the Maldives - A tropical paradise island like no other!

The Maldives is a popular tourist destination that is on many people's bucket lists. Over 1000 islands make up this incredible archipelago, many of which have been converted into private island resorts. Here's a post that covers everything a traveller needs to know before visiting the Maldives.


An archipelagic nation

The Maldives, as previously said, is made up of about 1190 islands. As a result, when the Maldives is mentioned, it refers to the entire group of islands that are scattered about in the magnificent Indian Ocean. The islands are divided into 26 atolls. Male is the republic's capital, and it's here that you'll be landing. You may fly to any of the 200 private resort islands from the international airport here. The Maldives has been renowned as a honeymoon location due to the privacy these luxury resorts offer. You can check out a beach resort in Maldives the likes of Embudu Village for your stay here.


Sri Lanka is only an hour away!

Sri Lanka is another famous tourist location that is found just one hour away from the Republic of Maldives. If you are planning a trip to this country, you would not be disappointed if you spend a couple of days in the Maldives or vice versa. Every day, approximately 3 to 4 planes fly from Colombo to Male. You may also experience the greatest tropical holiday while visiting two of Southeast Asia's most popular beach destinations.


Visa requirements

Visitors to the Maldives are issued visas on arrival; therefore, no pre-arrival visa is necessary. For all nationals, a thirty-day visa will be issued. You must, however, ensure that the passport is valid for the next 6 months and that you have a valid return ticket.



As the Maldives is an Islamic country, it has severe alcohol regulations. You are not permitted to carry booze into the nation. So stay away from the duty-free shops when you are tempted to buy wine, spirits or beer. If you do purchase, you'll have to leave it off at customs, and you'll be able to collect your liquor on your way back. However, certain hotels and restaurants hold special liquor permits that allow them to sell alcohol.


Peak seasons

It is necessary to consider the optimal dates to visit the nation. Each country is distinct from the others. Peak season here in the Maldives begins in December and will last until March. The main reason for this is the climate and weather. The average temperature on this tropical island paradise is around 28 to 30 degrees Celsius. Showers are common throughout the monsoon season, which runs from April till October. Rainfall is greatest between June - August. As a result, most visitors visit the Maldives at the end of each year. However, this is mostly dependent on the type of activities you wish to engage in. If you are a frequent surfer, the reverse is true. As a result, the best months for surfers will be June through August.
