The Maldive is an irresistible bucket-list destination internationally known for its beautiful turquoise-blue water, white-sand beaches, and luxury amenities. Located in the Indian Ocean, this archipelago consists of 1192 islands home to over half a million people, all of which have their own unique cultures and traditions.
In the Maldives, island-hopping is a way of life, as each island has a unique offering and provides something new to discover. Malé is the main island and is the best island for honeymooners or luxury-seekers. Baros offers water pool villas. Ukulha is known as the cleanest island. And if you want to experience true Maldivian life, then Feydhoo Island is the perfect place to visit. Whatever island you choose, be prepared to find paradise. The Maldives will not disappoint, whether you are looking to spend your days lying on the beach and drinking cocktails or jumping headfirst to explore sandbars and coral reefs.
The best time to visit the Maldives is between November and April, during the dry season when the weather is warm and tropical. The peak tourism season runs between December to March. The wet season begins in May and goes until October.
If you are planning to visit the Maldives because of a particular sport, there are also specific times of the year when surfing, scuba diving, snorkeling, and boating are the most popular. Surfing is best between February and November, while snorkeling, boating, and scuba diving (aka slow activities warranting calmer seas) are best between December and January. Visibility for scuba diving is optimal between January and April.
The islands are known as one of the best sailing destinations and as a result, chartering a boat is one of the best ways to explore The Maldives. Chartering a yacht in the Maldives gives you the freedom to take your time to explore each of the many islands within this archipelago and anchor down wherever you want.
