The Maldives are made up of over 1,000 islands, 200 of them inhabited, and many of those are home to resorts.”
It’s difficult to visit the Maldives on a budget, but very few places can compete with the comfort and extravagance provided by a Maldives resort. Any trip to the Maldives should include these activities:
Get Pampered While on Holiday in the Maldives
Almost every Maldives resort has a spa, and these spas incorporate traditional remedies from the Ayurvedic tradition as well as sand massages and coconut oil treatments.
Given the incredible beauty and remoteness of the natural surroundings, receiving a treatment here after a day of snorkeling and swimming may be quite possibly the most relaxing thing on earth. Stressed out travelers planning their next holiday probably can’t do better to heal what ails them.
For those who really want to get away from it all, it’s possible to visit an uninhabited island and claim it for a day. As only 200 of the islands are inhabited, that leaves more than 800 unoccupied islands to explore.
Travel there by boat and learn about traditional fishing, or take an air taxi. Safari boats allow visitors to tour multiple islands whereas it’s possible to arrange an overnight stay with a dhoni boat.
Hang up a hammock and crack open a coconut as you enjoy unparalleled solitude — excepting visits from sea turtles and other wildlife.”
With all the resorts and tourists, it’s easy to overlook local life and customs. Remedy that with a trip to the capital city of Malé.
Shop in the markets, admire the brightly-painted buildings and mosques, and take advantage of one of the only inexpensive pleasures of the Maldives: the street food! Enjoy rich, spicy curries, the freshest of fish, and any number of deep-fried snacks.
Visitors should note that while drinking laws are relaxed for the resorts, drinking alcohol is not permitted in the capital. The National Museum is small but gives visitors a sense of the islands’ history, and is housed in the only remaining building of what was once a Sultan’s opulent palace.
