A famed string of islands ideally located in the Indian Ocean, it’s no wonder the Maldives is one of the world’s most popular travel destinations each year. The charm of thatched-roof huts overlooking the crystal-clear water coupled with an easy feel of this tropical island nation will have you wanting to extend your vacation from the moment you arrive.
With each island being just as beautiful as the next and ferries running from one tropical beach to another, it’s easy to explore this nation to your heart’s content. Practice yoga or meditation on a white sandy beach, soak up the sun on your own private villa, or head out for a day of scuba diving and snorkeling in the biodiverse surrounding waters. There are so many beaches and parks to choose from, but Sun Island Beach, Veligandu Island Beach and Alimatha Island seem to come out as the top-rates spots year after year. Need a break from the sun? Check out one of the many historical Mosques or landmarks dotting the Maldives like the stunning, gold-domed Hulhumale Mosque or the unique Tsunami Monument.
Whether you’re vacationing in the Maldives with a partner, with your family or simply just exploring solo you’re sure to fall in love with the easygoing lifestyle and gorgeous surroundings.
