The Maldives are perfection. Spread out over the Indian Ocean, this archipelago is famous not just as a spectacular holiday resort but also as a natural wonder. Here are our top four practical things you should know about the Maldives before you go.
1. Don’t wait until your honeymoon
One of the biggest misconceptions about the Maldives is that it is considered a honeymoon destination. You don’t have to be a couple to go to the Maldives, there are plenty of things to do there as a solo traveller or a group of friends. You can even take children.
2. Alcohol is only allowed on resort islands
Alcohol is only permitted on Maldives Island resorts and not in the islands where locals reside. This is due to the Maldives being an Islamic country. As such also make sure that you are clad in swimwear only when you are at Finolhu Baa Atoll Maldives or other resort islands.
3. It isn’t just for the rich and famous
The Maldives is not just for the rich and famous. The luxury and comfort can be yours regardless so do some shopping around and you’ll find that there are some great deals available.
4. Stay in a posh hotel
Splurge at your resort hotel and enjoy the time of your life. The Maldives is the perfect place to go for that utterly relaxing holiday you have been dreaming of.
