The sunny islands of the Maldives are a traveller’s gateway to paradise. A vacation at one of these islands ensures that tourists will be able to explore the many historical and natural sites in a matter of a few days. Here is a collection of places that you should visit during a trip to the Maldives.
China Maldives Friendship Bridge
A 20-minute speedboat ride from Hard Rock Hotel Maldives is all it takes to reach the China Maldives Friendship Bridge. This magnificent bridge, connecting Male and the Hulhule Airport Island is a phenomenal work of engineering, budgeting a million-dollar project planted in the seabed. However, the opinions on the construction of this bridge have been divided, most believing it to be a waste of finances and resources.
While Himmafushi can be viewed from some Maldives resort rooms and suites, other tourists may require a ride to the island from a speedboat to visit this expensive little shopping spot. Behind all the expensive and glamorous souvenirs lies a traditional village that houses a history of a prison that used to be a significant part of the island in the past.
Easily reachable from Male, Thulushdhoo was an industrious island where big drums were produced. The island is also famed to host the only Coca Cola factory which utilises desalinated water for the production of the much-loved beverage. Tourism on the island has boomed in the past years due to the dazzling beaches and stunning views open for all to visit.
If you are particular about cleanliness in tropical islands, Dhigurah is your go-to vacation spot. The island shelters approximately 600 guests that inhabit the land. The white sand beach, cafes and souvenir shops add to the beauty of Dhigurah that invites guests for a splash and ocean as it is known to be a wonderful diving base.
