Things to Know before You Visit the Maldives – A short guide before your vacation

Stretches of perfectly white sandy beaches, gorgeous sunsets and blindingly blue beaches to enjoy, Maldives is all that and more. Here’s a little more information on the Republic of Maldives.

The islands

The Maldives is made up of almost 2000 islands, which are peppered across the Indian ocean. Out of all the islands within the 26 different atolls, only around 200 are occupied with people. The uninhabited islands are used as farmlands or ‘picnic’ islands where locals and tourists can visit for a day. The best resorts in Maldives for families and other travellers are also found on their very own private islands, such as Anantara Dhigu Maldives Resort.

The people and culture

The entire population in the Maldives are Muslim, the only other country with a 100% Muslim population is Saudi Arabia. There are strictly enforced rules that you must follow, in order to stray away from trouble and it’s always good to be respectful when you’re in a foreign country! However, most of these rules do not apply to resort islands. The people of Maldives are extremely friendly and welcoming, you will not feel alienated when you visit local islands.

The marine life

It is in the Maldives that you can find some of the best over and underwater marine life viewing. The diverse and rich spread of marine species are truly fascinating, and you should jump at any chance to experience this. You have the opportunity of snorkelling at these islands!
