White-sand beaches, unbeatable luxury and exciting underwater life make any holiday here an unforgettable experience.
Best time to visit
Best time to visit the Maldives is from November to April. Wet season and high humidity start from May to October with possibly strong winds.
Money saving tips
The best way to visit the Maldives on a budget is staying on one of the locals’ islands. They are at a fraction of the price of the luxury resorts.
The daily suggested budget for the Maldives is $500 USD/2 people, assuming you’re staying in a resort, have a half-board package and take a seaplane.
Favourite thing to do
Seaplane ride was a very unique experience and you should treat it as one, as it’s quite pricey. Besides that, a private sandbank picnic was amazing.
With powdery white sand beaches, turquoise waters and unique ways of vacationing, Maldives is quite righteously portrayed by the media as a true tropical paradise. The Maldives, known to the locals in their native language (Dhivehi) as Dhivehi Raajje, are an archipelago of 1,192 coral islands grouped into 26 natural coral atolls in the Indian Ocean. Maldives is the smallest Asian country by land area and population, with around 430,000 inhabitants (2019). Out of 1190 islands, only 192 islands are inhabited and the rest of the islands remain virgin islands, besides the more than 100 islands that have been developed for the top end of the tourist market. We decided to experience two sides of the Maldives. The local island called Hulhumale and the resort island Fushifaru, where we experienced a true Maldives holiday.
