Top Tip - Special occasion? Make it unforgettable with a candlelit dinner for two on the beach.

With luxuriously warm seas, swaying palm trees and crystal white sands, the Maldives is the picture-perfect holiday. The high visibility water allows you to see marine wildlife from up to five metres away, making it the ideal destination to explore underwater.

The Maldives consists of 1,192 coral islands grouped in a double chain of 26 atolls of which 80 are inhabited. Snorkel or dive with over 1100 species of fish, 5 species of sea turtles, 21 types of whales and dolphins, and 187 coral varieties. Or simply enjoy the pristine white sands, swaying palms, and warm tropical water.

The near-perfect weather all the year round, combined with the friendly locals, the wonderfully warm bathing waters, and plenty of holiday activities, make your Maldives Holiday an increasingly popular choice for holiday breaks. Your flight will land in the capital city of Malé, one of the largest islands in the group. Malé has a population of over 100,000 and is as lively as it gets in the Maldives. A wide range of services and amenities are available to visitors to the city. Culturally, the capital is more conservative than the outlying islands, where most of the holiday resorts are located. Conservative attire for both men and women is recommended for this portion of your holiday in Maldives, and women should have a scarf or other head covering with them to avoid unwanted attention, as the residents of Malé typically follow Muslim conventions.

Diving and Snorkelling

The Maldives are a sensual overload, with crescents of sparkling white-sand beaches, colourful sunsets, clear turquoise water punctuated by coral reefs, and green palm trees swaying in the light breezes. The country is a photographer’s paradise and is cherished by snorkelers and SCUBA divers for its range of beautiful underwater terrain. The property boundaries of many hotels extend to small reefs just off their beaches, so snorkelling keen guests can enjoy the beauty of the reef right on their doorstep. Diving schools are available in most resorts, so you can take your exploration even deeper after some training.

Honeymoons and Renewal of Vows

For honeymoon to remember the Maldives is the favoured place to go. You can cocoon yourselves in the sound of the lapping waves and the warmth of the sun. Walk along the beach and get the coral sand between your toes, enjoying your time alone together. Getting away from the romance to more practical matters - take advantage of the complimentary extras that many hotels offer to honeymooners and have at least one dinner al fresco, beneath the twinkling stars. Attractive package deals are available that will save you money on a wide variety of services.

Beautiful Beaches

With over 1,000 islands and atolls, many of them uninhabited, you won’t find a greater choice of beaches anywhere in the world; this is exclusive to a holiday in the Maldives. Whether you enjoy lounging on the sand, walking in the surf, snorkelling or diving, the Maldives offer a warm, sunny retreat from your busy life at home. Leave your worries and the stresses of day-to-day living behind you, and come to the one place on earth that will allow you to thoroughly unwind, and truly enjoy the beauty of land and sea. You don’t need to pack much more than a swimsuit and some sunscreen before visiting the Maldives, but you’ll return with pleasant memories that will last a lifetime.

Things to see & do

Snorkel on, surfs up - Prepare to get goggle-eyed. The Maldives' undersea sights are absolutely dazzling. Want to hit the waves? You're in luck - there's outstanding surfing from June to September. And if your surfboard's beginning to feel like home, we recommend a 'surfari' for an excursion with a difference.

Upgrade to a Water Villa - Upgrade to a water villa for an unforgettable stay. Sitting on your secluded terrace is made even more luxurious with your private access into the shallows via steps. At night, the sound of the sea will rock you to sleep.

Amazing Spa Treatments - Spa and wellness treatments are a speciality in the Maldives. Experience true relaxation with Madivian Coconut oil, produced by age-old extraction techniques. It is known among islanders for its hydrating and healing elements, and will leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.

When to go

Those tropical postcards, featuring bronzed bodies, clear seas and blue skies, could basically have been taken at any time of year as temperatures in the Maldives hardly ever dip below 30°. Between May-October the islands see more rainfall than the other months, but probably the best time of year to visit is in between December and April as humidity levels are low, temperature are high and living is indescribably easy.
