Travel Guides and trips for luxury maldives

Composed of twelve hundred islands, Maldives is a slice of heaven sustained by the Indian Ocean. A mosaic of aquamarine waters and shimmering white shores, Maldives beckons tourists from across the globe with its sunset catamaran cruises and extravagant spa retreats. The country’s beaches are home to a thriving marine life with their waters boasting of everything from coral reefs and neon clownfish to the slow-moving manta rays. The shallow lagoon of Cocoa Island in the South Malé Atoll is a haven for Maldives’ snorkelling and kayaking enthusiasts. The National Museum located on the main island of Malé houses thrones and other palatial remnants formerly owned by local sultans. Being an island nation, Maldives’ seafood-based cuisine is delectable. One can head to the island’s diving paradise of Banana Reef that is decked with numerous caves and the most dramatic cliffs. A trip to Maldives will be incomplete without feasting on any dish that has the red snapper or the char-grilled prawns, while the authentic fare of the flavoursome curries, such as the miruhulee boava, created with octopus, chili, and curry leaves is also a must have.

Top Places To Visit in Maldives 4 Spots

What comes to mind when you hear the name 'Maldives'? Pristine islands surrounded by turquoise waters! But accessible only through super luxe resorts or equally posh liveaboards well beyond the average Joe's budget? You would have been correct in the year 2008, not anymore. In 2009, the government opened up the local islands to independent travelers, allowing locals to convert their homes to guesthouses.Maldives is a tiny island nation and yet many worlds in one. The most widely known version of Maldives is that of the private island resorts which outdo each other in providing obscene luxury to those able and willing to pay. Yet another version is life in Male, the extremely congested capital island and business center that is more chaotic than Bangkok. The least known version is the humble,peaceful life on local islands that is remarkably ordinary and yet fascinatingly extraordinary at the same time.
