Our first time travelling to the Maldives was in December 2020 during COVID-19! We were promised white sand, deep turquoise waters, wide ranging cuisine, exhilarating excursions, stunning coral and marine wildlife. Safe to say, we definitely did not leave disappointed!
Surrounded by the Indian Ocean, the Maldives consists of over 1,000 coral islands some of which are considered to be local islands inhabited by local Maldivians, whereas other islands are solely occupied by resorts!
Suitable for family vacations, romantic getaways, solo travel or group travel, the Maldives definitely has a resort, hotel or local guesthouse that will meet all your wants and desires at an affordable rate!
If you are interested in water based activities, the Maldives will provide you with unforgettable experiences! From snorkelling trips where you can get up close to manta rays, coral fish, reef sharks, whale sharks (and lots more!) to fishing trips, diving expeditions, island hoping and uninhabited island/sandbank trips!
