The Maldives is often considered to be one of the best vacation destinations in the world, and this is in no small part due to its fantastic beaches. With so many of them to choose from, here’s a look at the very best beaches the Maldives has to offer.
Found right next to a UNESCO biosphere reserve, the Milaidhoo Island Beach has long been a favourite stop for couples honeymooning in the Maldives. You get all the best tropical features here from the white sandy shores to azure blue waters. Dive beneath the waves to explore the stunningly beautiful coral reef and its denizens.
If you’re looking for places to see in Maldives, you can’t go wrong with Kanuhara Island. The beach here is flat, providing an unobstructed view of the vast Indian Ocean that seems to stretch on forever. Try to visit this beach around sunset for a truly spectacular scene.

While plenty of the Maldives’ luxury resorts – for example, the Adaaran Prestige Vadoo – having easy access to beaches, sometimes it’s worth seeking out that hidden patch of shoreline. Vabbinfaru is a relatively obscure, circular island that has some of the most picturesque coasts in the Maldives – be sure to check it out!
If you’re looking to do a bit of snorkelling after relaxing at the beach, Banana Reef is the place to be. This famous coral reef is home to a variety of fascinating wildlife, including the giant manta ray. Of course, back at shore, the beach here is just as fantastic – perfect for relaxing after exploring the reef.
