With 40 years in travel and hundreds of experts ready to help you realise your dream holiday.
With almost 1,200 islands, the Maldives is one of the best destinations in the world for a beach holiday. It’s almost certainly the most beautiful. The sand here is whiter than white, and every island is surrounded by a stunning cyan-blue lagoon. The coral reefs make for brilliant snorkelling and diving – and because the water stays warm all year, you probably won’t even need to wear a wetsuit.
While some Maldivian islands are obviously inhabited by locals, over 100 of them are home to resorts, which range from high-end luxury to easy-going and casual. And because each island is so small, there’s only one resort on each – so beaches are private, and solitude is all but guaranteed. A Maldives beach holiday really is nothing short of blissful.
In this island nation, the focus is very much on romance, relaxation and making the most of the natural beauty. There are endless options for watersports, and wellness is also big business here. Nearly every resort will have a spa and you can practise yoga on the beach, with the waves gently breaking in the background. Nightlife in the Maldives is obviously very subdued, but you’ll still find welcoming bars in the resorts, and restaurants full of delicious, local produce.
Besides fantastic food and unrivalled scenery, the Maldives is also blessed with incredible weather. The islands are very close to the equator – so the climate is tropical – but the lack of landmass means the air is cooler here than in other countries in the region. While it does see rain some months of the year, the temperature rarely drops below the mid-twenties. So whether you’re a couple looking for a romantic break, or a family wanting a fun-filled adventure, you can’t go wrong with a Maldives beach holiday.
Whether you’re planning your honeymoon or heading off on a family holiday, our experts can tailor-make a holiday to suit you.
