Holding over a thousand volcanic and coral islands within its watery embrace, the Maldivian archipelago has been considered a premier vacation destination for some time now. Thanks to the shimmering clear waters and beaches that pervade the area, visitors are able to frolic to their heart’s content, whether it’s an adrenaline-seeking activity tour, or enjoying the marine life beneath the waves. Here are a few tips to consider when planning for the Maldives:
Plan for the weather
As with any tropical beach destination, you’ll want to avoid going during rainy seasons. For soft sunshine and perfect weather, visit from November through April, and get the weather of a lifetime. In this way, you can make full use of any Maldives 5-star resorts that you so choose.
Follow the rules of the land
Being a Muslim-majority country, planning any sort of vacation during the times of Ramadan is a huge no-no, as many hotel staff will be on vacation to be with their loved ones and families during this holy time. Additionally, make sure you dress modestly where appropriate, to keep in with the culture of the country and show respect to its laws.
Try out the Overwater Bungalows
It’s not every day that you’ll get the opportunity to stay in a breathtaking destination like the Maldives, in such a place as an overwater bungalow. Make the most of it! There’s nothing like waking up to the soft sounds of crashing waves, and the scents of the oceans coupled with the beautiful sunshine you’ll find nowhere else.
Don’t Miss the Bioluminescent beaches
Wherever you stay in the Maldives, be it in a luxury property such as The Residence Maldives or elsewhere, make sure to visit the Baa Atoll to feast your eyes upon the beautiful bioluminescent beaches, borne of plankton emitting their luminescent toxins over the water. Make sure to verify the authenticity of any tours you choose to join!
