Family Holidays to Maldives

Although the Maldives has a reputation for being a romantic destination for couples and honeymooners – understandably – these bright lagoons and sugary beaches are just as well set up for an amazing family holiday. This group of over 1,000 small islands and atolls is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. With crystal-clear waters and glorious sunshine, holidays to the Maldives are all about relaxation. But you might be surprised by just how many activities there are to keep the kids happy. The luxurious swimming pools are the perfect place for children to play, while you relax with an iced cocktail. The kids can go snorkelling for the first time, swim in the tropical sea, and have a go at water sports. With so many fantastic islands and resorts to choose from in the Maldives, you really can design the holiday of a lifetime here, tailored to your family. 

Why is the Maldives great for Families?

When you think about the recipe for a perfect beach family holiday, you can narrow it down to a few very important ingredients – relaxation, scenery and sun. The Maldives offers all three, and so much more. It’s a destination that gives people a taste of both paradise and luxury – what’s not to love? These beautiful islands will give you and your family a sense of remoteness, so you can switch off your mind – and your phone – and simply spend some quality time together as a family. Time goes slowly here. You’ll find it’s easy to unwind, with the sun on your skin and the kids splashing about in the sea, or your private pool. Whichever island you choose, you’re guaranteed to have a relaxing family holiday in a picture-perfect spot. 

Travelling tips for Maldives

When to go to the Maldives

 The Maldives is warm and sunny all year round, but the best time to visit is between November and April – it’s a great choice for some winter sun. How does a sunny Christmas sound to you? Or perhaps you’d prefer an Easter break, to blow away the cobwebs? If you want to make the most of the beaches, it’s best to go in winter, to avoid any unwanted rain. The monsoon season lasts from May to October, normally peaking in June. But, if you’re travelling with older kids who are keen to go diving, the wet season can actually be a good time to go to the Maldives. The drop in temperature often means there are more hammerhead sharks in the area – the perfect snorkelling companions. 

Where to Stay in the Maldives

The all-important question for any holiday is where should you stay? The Maldives has a huge variety of hotels, resorts and island retreats for you to consider. There’s everything from grand family-friendly resorts equipped with swimming pools, watersports and private beaches, to more simple options perfect for a Maldives holiday on a budget. For families looking for something a little more private and serene, there’s the option of a private villa – some even sit right over the water, so you can get out of bed and jump straight in. Instant access to the sea sounds good, doesn’t it? Wherever you stay, though, you’ll never be far from the sea. Pick the option that works best for you and your kids.

Things to do in the Maldives 

The Maldives is an island paradise, so relaxing on the beach or playing with your kids in the pool is pretty much a given. But this tropical archipelago has so much more to offer. If your children have never snorkelled, this is the very best place in the world for them to give it a try. Head out on a boat trip and jump into the clear waters. Kids of all ages will be amazed by the colourful corals and tropical fish. There’ll also be opportunities to learn to surf and try various water sports – perfect for teenagers. If you decide to stay on one of the larger islands, why not go exploring on dry land too?  Go for an afternoon stroll to a nearby village, try some local cuisine, and learn about real Maldivian life.
