While the Maldives has rightly earned a reputation as a romantic destination for couples, it’s also perfect for family getaways and here are some reasons why.
Private Island Resort
Located on private islands, resorts here including Milaidhoo Island Maldives offer the ideal escape from the crowds for some quality family time. Each island has a pristine beach that kids are bound to love; from building sandcastles with them to playing fun games on the shore there’s much to enjoy away from digital distractions!
Unlike some small city hotel rooms, you can look forward to spacious and luxurious family accommodation in the Maldives. Beach villa and residence options, some with private pools, provide the ideal choice with easy access to the shore. You even get unique overwater living spaces with steps leading to the ocean below.
Fun Water Sports
Snorkelling is amongst the many water sports here for the whole family. Those staying at resorts in the Baa Atoll, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, can even enjoy snorkelling with manta rays (May to November) in Hanifaru Bay! Other activities like kayaking, zayaking (a sea sled) and stand-up paddleboarding, provide fun exploration too.
You can look forward to taking exciting family excursions out to sea; this includes dolphin watching where you have the chance to witness these marine mammals swimming and even frolicking in the water. You could also embark on private cruises, visit snorkelling hotspots and enjoy a BBQ lunch or picnic on an uninhabited island!
