Places To See: Maldives

The ethereal island nation of Maldives has often been termed as God’s own vacation spot, and to this it does utter and complete justice. The entire Maldives comprises over 1,200 pristine, dreamy, sunny islands that offer a burst of culture and cocktail.

Not many know that Maldives only opened to tourism in 1972. The beauty of the paradise is natural, the hospitality now booming. Naturally separated and dotted across the vast Indian Ocean, each island of the nation has only one resort. The unique, almost unreal concept becomes especially important to consider as travel resumes. 

And even though when we imagine ourselves in this white sand-brushed, palm-coverer, lagoon-spun piece of heaven, all we see is hat on head, a glass of cocktail in hand, reclining on a beach chair and thinking how wonderful life is, there are plenty of things to do in the island nation. 

Our short and sweet guide is there to share places your Maldives trip is incomplete without and all that you can do to make the best of your time there. 

Don’t forget your sunblock and your hat!

Best time to travel

If you’re still looking for the most enjoyable time, though, consider visiting from December to April. The weather is pleasant and the air a little dry, but there are little to no showers that can hamper your plans.
