The Maldives is on many people’s bucket lists for its crystal-clear waters, incessant sunshine, and lovely white sandy beaches. Here are some highlights to help you start planning your perfect vacation to this slice of paradise.
When should I go?
The Maldives boasts of sunshine all year round, subject to two seasons which are dictated by the Monsoon. The dry spell runs from January to April making this the busiest time on the islands. Whereas some downpours can be expected from May to July and September to November. Despite the showers, there still is a fair amount of sunshine.
Where should I stay?
Picking your resort in the Maldives comes down to your budget. If you can splurge for a luxury resort, you definitely will not regret it! With plenty of unique options of resorts on private islands such as Niyama Private Island Maldives offers their guests the option of staying at either of its twin islands-each with its distinct theme and activities.
How do I get about it?
Since the Maldives is a collection of over 1000 islands and 26 atolls, the modes of transport look a little different here and can set you back quite a bit as well, so come prepared to spend if you want to travel with ease. While there are ferries that can take you from one island to the next, more resort islands offer transport by way of private speedboats or seaplanes.
