Happen On Tides
Unrivaled luxury, gorgeous white-sand beaches, and an incredible underwater environment make the Maldives an easy option for a once-in-a-lifetime vacation.
The Maldives has some of the greatest beaches in the world; they can be found on virtually every one of the country's roughly 1200 islands and are so consistently beautiful that it's difficult not to grow blasé about them. While some beaches have softer granules than others, the truth remains that you won't find whiter-than-white powder sand and dazzling cyan-blue sea like this anyplace else on the planet.
Resorts for Everyone
Every resort in the Maldives has its own private island, and with over 100 options, the only difficulty is deciding where to stay. At the high end, the world's most exclusive hotel companies vie to achieve ever-higher levels of luxury, from personal butlers and private lap pools to in-room massages and pillow menus.
Since inhabited islands have been opened to tourists and residents have been permitted to establish their own guesthouses, the Maldives has witnessed seismic upheaval in the last ten years. Travelers are no longer required to stay in resorts and be isolated from the local community, which has kept backpackers away for decades.
The pristine seas of the Maldives are a magnet for anybody interested in marine life, with some of the greatest diving and snorkelling in the world. When you go down to the reef, you’ll be greeted with brilliant coral walls, beautiful caverns, and schools of brightly coloured tropical fish. Manta rays, turtles, sharks, and even the world’s biggest fish may be found in deeper waters.
