Made up of over 1,000 islands, it stands to reason that the Maldives is one of the best destinations for island hopping! Here’s a sneak peek of what to expect.
For soaking up some local culture, visits to inhabited islands are best. When choosing where to stay in Maldives, consider resorts that offer excursions where you can explore a village in such islands; you can discover traditional living, sample local dishes and get in a bit of shopping too!
A great many islands are uninhabited and offer the ultimate escape. Properties the likes of Reethi Faru Resort in Maldives offer trips to such isolated spots where you can enjoy a half-day getaway like no other; laze in the sand, swim in the ocean and head off on a snorkelling adventure in this secluded paradise.
The Island of Male
Well worth adding to an island hopping tour is the country’s capital, Male. The island offers much to experience be it local culture or cuisine. Some of the top attractions in Maldives can be found here as well including the Old Friday Mosque, Grand Friday Mosque, National Museum and the lively Male Fish Market.
Depending on where you are staying, you may get a chance to visit nearby Maldives island resorts as well. It’s a great way to enjoy a change of scenery and see some of the other islands, before heading back to your own home away from home!
