The Maldives is known for its beaches, blue lagoons and extensive reefs. The city has a busy fish market, restaurants and shops on the main road, Majeedhee Magu, and 17th-century Hukuru Miskiy made of carved white coral. The Maldives beaches, most of them untouched by human feet are a getaway unlike any beach destination. Just imagine laying on the soft white sands with your partner, taking a dip in the azure coloured waters while completely alone on an entire island. With its dreamy overwater bungalows and the soft sands fading into shallow, emerald waters, the Maldives is everyone’s image of tropical paradise. Here is a list of some amazing experiences you should try in the Maldives, from snorkeling and stargazing to unforgettable beach dinners and magical moments in the world’s only underwater spa.
1. Watch the alluring sea-life
There could be nothing more delightful than to stare at the beautiful coral or a giant whale shark. Maldives, with an abundance of beautiful coral reefs and rich marine life, it is one of the few places in the world where you can snorkel alongside a whale sharks and manta rays. If you plan to experience an under-water life, this is the best place to do it.
2. Stay in a Beach House
For a truly memorable experience, opt for one of the romantic Jacuzzi Beach Houses at the postcard-perfect Kandolhu Island resort in the North Ari Atoll. Built in the stunning mix of contemporary Maldivian architecture and traditional craftsmanship, each property has its own garden complete with a sexy open-air bathroom.
3. Spending time at city Malé
Male offers the best chance to see the ‘real’ Maldives away from the resort buffet and infinity pool. Overlooked by tall, brightly coloured buildings and they are surrounded by incongruously turquoise water, Male is a hive of activity, the engine driving from the Maldives’ economy and the forum for the country’s political struggles.
4. Spend each day at a different island
Go nomadic on the holidays in the Maldives and wake up at a different island each morning with your love. The country has 1,192 coral islands, some of them are famous for their deep sea fish, while others for bright coral reefs and colourful reef fish. Go island hopping from one resort to the other resort and see everything that the country has to offer.
5. Arrange a Beach Pit Dinner
Dusit Thani Maldives, a high-end resort on the Mudhdhoo Island, takes beach dining to the next level with their Borderless Dining concept blends palatial menus with some extraordinary settings. The Beach Pit Dining comes with gentle ocean breezes and glorious sunset views.
