Holidays to Maldives

Open your eyes to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world on a Maldives holiday. Showcasing pearlescent white sand that is lapped at by the luminous blue waters of the Indian Ocean, Maldives has long been thought of as the queen of the desert island escape.

Whether you dream of days spent with the sand beneath your feet and the sun beaming across your face, or you want to duck and dive amongst the waves for adrenaline thrills and underwater sights, this unique island assortment promises a trip of a lifetime.

Float away

This beautiful collection of islands gives you the chance to tailor make your holidays to the Maldives, whether you wish to splash out on something special, or want to appreciate the scenic delights, there’s something to suit every budget. Pick an isolated island such as Raa Atoll for a dreamy stay in your own private villa nestled on ocean silts or opt for Bandos Island to be in the midst of the beautiful scenery.

Cultural stays can be enjoyed in the bustling city of Male, where you can stay just moments from attractions and sites, but still within an unparalleled luxury and a beachside setting.

The Heat is On

It is impossible to head off on Maldives holidays and not be enchanted by the beaches on offer, as each island is sprinkled with the palest of sands and skimmed by the bluest of waters. Anyone looking for pure relaxation will certainly find it, with the opportunity to spend your days doing little more than lazing on the sands, paddling in the sea, with the odd interruption of a spa treatment and some pampering.

Those who like to team a slice of action with their relaxation will find plenty to do too. From scuba diving to sea plane flights, there’s something to get your heart pumping. The snorkelling scene in the Maldives is huge too, so don’t miss out on exploring the world beneath the crystal waters of the Indian Ocean!

Evenings vary across the island’s diverse collection of destinations, but most enjoy laid-back nights, complete with cocktails beneath the stars and some top-notch cuisine. If you’re looking for something a little more upbeat, look out for the beach parties held by locals – they’ll entertain you with traditional island music, dancing and crab racing.

The Maldives are graced with a tropical climate that sees plenty of sunshine, with average temperatures of around 30C whatever the time of year. Rainfall is seen more frequently from April until October, but it comes in short, tropical bursts that dry out in no time.

Unwind on a tropical getaway

Besides spending your days lazed under the sun, holidays to Maldives can be filled with entertaining activities and sightseeing.

Those of you with energy to burn can find plenty to keep you busy across the shorelines, whether you delve into the water for some world class scuba diving and snorkelling, or you try water sports such as parasailing, kayaking, sailing and wind surfing. The islands are also increasingly popular amongst surfers, with lessons available should you wish to try your hand at the sport.

Intrepid visitors can devote their time to some exploration whilst visiting the Maldives and island hop their way across this stunning archipelago. Those who want some guided exploration can enjoy boat trips and sea kayaking tours, or jet ski safaris. Some islands also offer the chance to see some once in a lifetime sights, on dolphin cruises, sunset boat rides and castaway picnics.

Top Beaches

Maldivian cuisine is largely made up of freshly caught seafood, most commonly tuna-fish. At lot of these foods are heavily influenced by Sri Lankan and Southern Indian cooking, meaning a lot of powerful, often spicy flavours. If you’re a fan of curries then you’ll be delighted by the local delicacies, if not then don’t worry! All of the resorts have their own restaurants each of which serves a wide selection of western and Asian favourites, you won’t go hungry!

Winter Sunshine

Not only are the endless beaches of the Maldives atolls and islands a wonderful break in the summer months, they’re warm all year round. Why not take a break from the winter weather and escape to paradise? You could be enjoying the eternally summery sunshine while the rest of us are wrapped up and braving the cold!

Water-Sports

In a paradise where the water is 26-28 degrees all year round, why not go for it and get a bit wet? With just about every water-sport imaginable available to you in the Maldives you certainly won’t want for new experiences. Why not pull the whole family onto a banana-boat? Or, if you fancy something a little more extreme, try windsurfing or water-skiing.

Quiet-Spots

The Maldives are naturally extremely exclusive. You’re unlikely to be burdened by throngs of other beach-lovers even in the busy seasons. But, what could be more romantic than a stretch of pure white sand shared but just you and your loved one? The endless sapphire-blue of the Indian Ocean before you and the dappled greens and browns of the palms behind you. Take a long stroll down one of these beaches and you won’t struggle to find such a spot, then all that’s left to do will be sitting back and relaxing.
