What To Do On A Maldives Holiday


What is the best time of year to visit the Maldives?

The best time to visit the Maldives is between November and April. These months offers warm and sunny weather, with dry conditions making it popular time among tourists. This peak season provides ideal beach conditions for outdoor activities like snorkelling and scuba diving, allowing visitors to enjoy the stunning marine life the Maldives are famed for.

Does the Maldives have a nightlife?

Yes, the Maldives does have a nightlife. Many resorts host evening entertainment such as live music, beach barbecues, and Maldivian cultural performances. For a more unique experience, you can also partake in night fishing or embark on a mesmerising night snorkelling excursion to witness the bioluminescent plankton that light up the waters. However, it is important note that the Maldives is a Muslim country, so alcohol is only available on the private resort islands and not in the capital city of Malé or local islands.

What are the best activities to do in the Maldives?

The crystalline waters are a haven for divers, with vibrant coral reefs and exotic marine life to explore. Surfing is also another popular pursuit, with the Maldivian waves drawing surfers from many different countries. But if you prefer a more leisurely pace, the Maldives' famed white sand beaches provide the perfect spot for sunbathing and relaxation. And as for those interested in local culture, a visit to the capital city of Malé with its historic mosques and bustling markets is a must.

How do I prepare for a trip to the Maldives?

Firstly, ensure that all your travel documents, including passports and visas, are up to date. While the Maldives offers visa on arrival for most tourists, it's best to check the official government website for the latest information. Pack light and breathable clothing suitable for the tropical climate, along with swimwear for water activities. Respect the local customs and regulations, especially in the Muslim culture of the Maldives, by dressing modestly on inhabited islands. Also be sure to consult your healthcare provider for necessary vaccinations and health precautions, and be sure to have adequate travel and medical insurance in case of any unforeseen circumstances.
