There’s no better place in the world to relax on the beach, take a dip in luminous blue water and enjoy the best of a worldly luxury than in the Maldives. It is not a place dripping with historical sites or culturally significant attractions (not that there aren’t any), but Maldives is not about that! It’s one of the most scintillating archipelagos in the world where you can appreciate the best of natural beauty. When visiting Maldives take extra care to pick the right accommodation whatever it may be, a hostel, budget hotel or a luxury resort the likes of Adaaran Prestige Water Villas.
One of the best places to visit in Maldives is the Meedhoo Island. Nestled in the far northeast of the Dhaalu Atoll it is home to the oldest graveyard in the Maldives. The Koagannu cemetery is massive and is known for the giant headstones, which are carved with archaic Dives Akuru script. This is an inhabited island and you find shops, a park, three schools and a few mosques located here. The oldest mosque in Maldives is also attached to the Koagannu cemetery. The island is small so you can travel everywhere on foot. Once you pass the cemetery you reach the beach. A dramatic rocky beach with spectacular views all around here will make you want to stay the whole day, simply appreciating the beauty of it.
The locals living in Meedhoo Island is still conservative since you find most women covered top to toe in abayas (robes). However, tourists are not judged for their attire since they are accustomed to visitors from around the world. Restaurants in the island serve both local and international cuisines as well as stunning views of the ocean. The parkland restaurant in Meedhoo is known to serve the best ice cream in the whole of Maldives, so if you go there, try one!Caleb Falcon is a travel writer who specializes in writing content based on the many exciting world adventures that await intrepid travellers.
