If you’ve decided on a holiday in the Maldives for the first time, the good news is this destination is truly amazing. Don’t worry, there’s no bad news coming! Just keep the below points in mind when planning.
Choose the Right Resort
For that total island escape, consider staying at Maldives island resorts that offer everything from enchanting overwater villas to thrilling water sports. Those that have distinctive dining options, spa treatments and local excursions will help make a trip more memorable as well.
Consider Island Transfers
Remember that in most cases, island resorts can be some way off from the airport and boat or seaplane transfers are required for an added cost. Of course, resorts like Maafushivaru Maldives do offer seaplane transfers and have dedicated lounges at the airport which adds to the convenience.
Check the Weather
Being a tropical country, the Maldives enjoys many days of sunshine throughout the year. Of course, there are times when monsoonal rains are prevalent. Check online what the weather is going to be like when you visit which can also impact outdoor activities and water sports.
It is of vital importance to be respectful of the local culture. Remember this is a Muslim country and when on inhabited islands like the capital Male, you need to dress conservatively, covering bare shoulders and legs. While swimwear is allowed on private island resorts, topless or nude sunbathing is prohibited.
