With year-round idyllic weather, the Maldives is one of the best destinations for an island escape
The Maldives are a beautiful archipelago in the Indian Ocean, comprised of almost 1200 white-sand islands surrounded by turquoise lagoons and vibrant coral reefs.
Perfect for anyone looking for an island escape from honeymooners to young families, the Maldives offer some of the world’s finest beaches, with powder-soft, white sand dotted with coconut palms.
The region’s clear, warm waters are a diver’s paradise. The colourful coral reefs and mysterious caves teem with brightly-coloured fish, whilst in the deeper waters, divers will spot manta rays, sea turtles, sharks, and whale sharks.
Thrill-seekers can enjoy a host of water sports including water-skiing, jet-skiing, flyboarding and banana boat rides. More relaxed water sports include canoeing, kayaking and paddle boarding. Visitors can also explore the waters on private yacht voyages or sunset cruises with reef fishing and dolphin spotting just some of the activities on offer.
On land, visitors can enjoy a friendly game of beach volleyball or tennis, relax in a world-class spa, enjoy cocktails in a beachfront bar, or sample the local cuisine in a fine-dining restaurant.
The region boasts hot and sunny weather year-round, with the high season between December and March.
