Top reasons to Travel to the Maldives – Here’s why!

The Maldives is once in a lifetime travel destination, and with good reason too, the beauty of the beaches and accommodation is incomparable.


The Beaches

The Beaches in the Maldives are some of the most spectacular you will ever see in your lifetime. Crystal clear, turquoise blue waters, white sandy beaches, and palm trees may seem like heaven on earth. The Maldives is comprised of many islands, so picking one may seem like a task, and it is! Over 1192 islands make up the Maldivian archipelago. It spreads over 35,000 miles and 26 atolls in the Indian Ocean with only 200 populated islands, of which 80 other islands are resorts. However, only 10 atolls can be accessed by tourists. But what you will find common in most of them is the sheer beauty and tranquillity. If you ever wanted a Robinson Crusoe experience on a deserted minus the hardship well then look no further than the Maldives.


The resorts

The resorts are what makes the Maldives so incredible. Most of these constructions are built in harmony with the natural environment, it captures the beauty without ruining nature with unnecessary buildings and constructions. As some islands are so small, they can only hold a few villas, and this is perfect for those who want an ultimate getaway, such as a honeymoon. The resorts in the Maldives are perhaps some of the most luxurious you will find, and due to their location, some of the most expensive as well. However, it will be worth it for anyone and everyone who loves the beach. Some of the most famous types of accommodation include those built on the water, usually, on the lagoon of the island there is also the beach villa, on the beach itself or in the Maldives, bungalow accommodations is also a great option. If you want to do activities like snorkelling, look out for a resort with a house reef. Many resorts will offer great packages for honeymooners, so get in touch to decide which resort can provide you with the perfect getaway. You can check out places like Anantara Veli Maldives Resort as an option.


Water activities

If you love playing in the water, then a trip to the Maldives should be on your bucket list. Apart from lounging on the beach day and night, and basking in luxury, there are so many ways to have an amazing time in the Maldives. The beautiful oceans that surround these islands are packed with fun this to do. Head to the Baa Atoll for one of the best diving locations on the planet! Dive beside marine animals such as hawksbill turtles, manta rays, guitar sharks, and whale sharks.

Visit Male Atoll, Ari Atoll, Baa Atoll and Faafu Atoll for the best of diving and snorkelling. You can try your hand at kiteboarding, windsurfing, and water skiing. Even surfing has become common due to fewer crowds and calmer surroundings.

Island hopping is another fun activity! A nice way to get introduced to Maldivian culture and traditions. Tours can be organised with the resort you are staying at. It is done via speed boat. Another option is to tour on a traditional wooden boat. The guides will take you to the best beaches on each island, and a separate time for snorkelling and diving will be provided. In some inhabited islands, you can visit villages that are welcoming of visitors.
