While each resort is located on a private island, don’t forget to visit some of the other islands in this country. You can take an excursion to a local island where you can observe Maldivian culture and traditional livelihoods. What’s more, you can also head to a completely deserted island to experience sublime solitude amidst unspoiled shores.

Not Having Sun Protection

Though having fun in the sand and surf awaits in the Maldives, don’t forget you need to be properly protected from the rays of the sun lest bad sunburn ruins your holiday! With that in mind, ensure you bring and use sunscreen that’s not only SPF 30 or higher but reef safe too especially when going out in the water. Additionally, a wide-brimmed hat will help as well.
