The Maldives is one of the most popular beach destinations you can visit in the world. Still, despite all their popularity, the islands hold several secrets that most travellers are unaware of. So, here’s a look at some of the most well-kept ones.
The Deserted Islands
If you’re looking to live out your own Robinson Crusoe fantasy, the Maldives is the place to be! Most of the islands that make up the Maldives are deserted, and you can explore these little mounds of land by booking yourself a boat trip along the shallow waters.
The reefs of the Maldives provide refuge to all kinds of rare and fascinating marine life – but it’s also home to some oceanic giants. If you’re staying at a prominent Maldives beach resort – say, for instance, The Residence Maldives Dhigurah – be sure to book yourself a snorkelling session with the resident manta rays and whale sharks!
The whale submarine is one of the best but least heard-of attractions available in the Maldives. This is just as it sounds – a luxurious submarine that takes you on a relaxing cruise under the waves of the Indian Ocean.
Underwater bedrooms are available at certain Maldives resorts – you just have to keep your eyes out for one. All in all, few things can beat drifting off into sleep while being surrounded by the big blue.
