Planning to escape to sunny Maldives? While this country is an ideal holiday choice, here are some things to keep in mind as you prepare for the perfect getaway.
Where to Stay
Those on a budget can look to stay at city hotels that make for ideal bases from which to do some exploring in Maldives. Luxury resorts however, offer more indulgent experiences on private islands including the chance to stay at overwater villas with direct access to the ocean below.
Water Sports Galore
Surrounded by miles upon miles of ocean, the Maldives offers an insane amount of water sports of which snorkelling takes pride of place. Resorts such as Adaaran Prestige Vadoo also provide diving excursions for more intriguing underwater exploration. Then there are jet skiing, surfing, parasailing, wakeboarding, windsurfing, fishing, kayaking, kitesurfing and banana boat rides too!
No trip to the Maldives is complete without some spa pampering. Island resorts have their own spas set amidst enchanting coastal backdrops. They generally offer everything from Ayurveda therapies to Western beauty treatments that are the perfect complement for a relaxing holiday.
While some may be content staying only at their resort, those looking to experience some culture can look to visit inhabited islands where they can witness a traditional way of life. For more adventures plan an excursion to Malé, home to many key attractions in Maldives. These include;
• Grand Friday Mosque
• Old Friday Mosque
• National Museum
• National Art Gallery
• Sultan Park
• The Fish & Produce Markets
