Sail in beautiful shallow water, slip into glittering emerald lagoons, and sink your toes into silky soft sand. So small you can barely spot it on a world map, the Maldives is an archipelago of 1190 pristine coral islands scattered across the Indian Ocean. A tropical haven of gleaming white sand beaches, tall coconut palms, and crystal clear seas alive with marine life. When you go ashore it’s a place you never have to wear shoes, the barefoot luxury of the islands is just another step into paradise.
Only 200 of the country’s islands are inhabited, and the majority play host to some of the best luxury resorts in the world, complete with gourmet restaurants, sensational spas, and deluxe overwater bungalows. You can indulge your senses with a treatment, dine below sea level surrounded by fish outside the glass, play a round of golf, go shopping, or even dance the night away.
Your journey will likely begin in the tiny island capital of Male, from there some of the must-sees include a chance to meet hammerheads and whale sharks on the reef beds of Ari Atoll, the seclusion of the romantic island of Meerufenfushi, and the undisturbed beaches of Shaviyani Atoll, a breeding place for turtles.
With an array of activities from natural to refined across numerous islands, you can spend your days soaking in the sun, or get adventurous with a host of water-sports from surfing and paddle boarding to incredible scuba diving. Just snorkelling along the country’s numerous reefs offers an abundance of colourful fish, coral, rays and sharks. For a castaway experience you can visit an uninhabited island and enjoy a beach bbq prepared by your chef. Any day can come to a close with cocktails and a spectacular sunset, followed by dinner onboard in the moonlight as the sea laps around the yacht and the sky fills with stars.
