Maldives a Paradise in the Indian Ocean
The Maldives is an untouched paradise with all the aspects of a perfect holiday, beautiful beaches, warm seas, fantastic food and glorious weather. So, introducing the Maldives – The perfect destination for a holiday that you will never forget. The Maldives is a perfect location for any holiday, whether it be a romantic honeymoon or a family getaway with the kids.
The Maldives is situated in the middle of the Indian Ocean, and is famed for actually being a series of coral reefs. This explains why the islands are so popular with those looking for some of the best diving and snorkeling sites in the world. If you do choose the Maldives, you should take the time to pick up diving qualifications before you go; this way you will be able to take a closer look at the Maldives’ major selling point. Head to Fushifaru Thila for some world famous diving – a dive site where manta rays and sharks are common sights. For another amazing dive site you could float around the eerie remnants of the Maldive Victory – A 110 yards long cargo ship that sunk in 1981.
If diving isn’t your thing, there is still plenty to do.
The resorts and accommodation are amongst the best in the world and you have a wide variety to choose from. Despite a number of lower-end accommodation options, you will find that The Maldives are still a little on the expensive side, but you certainly get what you pay for in the case of these glorious atolls. We suggest you head to Biyadoo island for a secluded holiday spot that provides you with all of your holiday needs including beach-front luxury accommodation.
For those looking to immerse themselves in the history of the Maldives, there are a number of historical sites dotted around the islands. If you fancy taking in some culture visit Hikkuru Miski in the capital city, here you can learn about Hinduism in the Maldives, or stroll through their own Natural History Museum. You can also savor Maldivian culinary delights with a visit to the fish market located in Male.
You will discover a vast array of species on offer and the often huge fish will make wondering the market a spectacular sight, regardless of whether you enjoy fish or not!
The flight time to the Maldives is around 10 hours.
Temperatures are warm all-year-round and are incredibly high in April when they regularly surpass 30-degrees. For the best possible visit visit any time outside of May to November, as this is during the wet-season.
