Maldives is depicted as an incredible holiday destination, filled with plenty to do and see. And for those of you wanting to head over, there are certain aspects that have to be addressed well in advance.
Since boat rides are amongst the more common forms of transportation in the Maldives, it is wise to stay on an island where you will not be too far away from Male. Single boat rides can cost between 100 – 200 USD which isn’t cheap by any means. If you’re an outdoors person, then be extra careful with how you end up spending your time. Excursions are known to cost around 80 USD per person.
The general understanding is that flights to the Maldives are quite expensive. However, this would depend on the destination from which you will be arriving from. There are a number of budget airlines which will have you pocketing out not more than 300 USD per person. Also, once landed in Male, the resort that you have chosen will have you escorted to the island by seaplane or boat.
Pen down a travel itinerary
Your travel itinerary will largely depend on the duration of your stay as well as the budget that you have in mind. So whether you want a more leisurely holiday or one that involves going surfing, jet skiing, snorkelling and island hopping, then look up some of the local resorts. Maldives is known for its outstanding accommodation opportunities such as those on offer at Niyama Private Islands Maldives. Then again, being spontaneous never did hurt anyone. So feel free to mix and match rather than settling for structured getaways.
