Maldives remains as one of the luxurious and quintessential travel destinations in the world. With its unrivalled beauty and picturesque islands, it’s no wonder that many couples flock towards this popular tropical paradise to celebrate anniversaries or have their honeymoons.
However, most visitors may find themselves just touring around the bustling city of Male. So, are you looking for a quaint place to have a relaxing stay while also planning to have a seamless exploration around the Maldives? Then, this guide is here to help you find some of the best places to visit that you definitely shouldn’t miss out on!
The charming island of Hulhumale has an endless stretch of beautiful white sandy beaches. You can strap on some snorkelling gear where you can swim with turtles and reef fishes. You might be able to see some black tip reef sharks and rays swimming below the farthest shallow part of the waters when you go scuba diving. Although for the most part of the beach, bikinis are not allowed, there’s only a certain section of the beach where it is okay to wear bikinis which residents call the tourist beach, so do keep that in mind since Hulhumale is still mainly a local island first and foremost.
Scuba diving is a large part of Maldives’ tourist attraction. And what better way to spend your main excursion is by donning on those wetsuits and scuba gears so you can dive into the depths of the iconic Banana Reef.
Located in Raa Atoll, this inhabited island offers a unique experience you can ever have. Expect to find an occurrence of bioluminescence in the ocean waters during night time – a striking surprise for all island visitors that will surely make your stay unforgettable.
The name ‘Maafushi’ translates to ‘Big Island’, and true enough, it is one of the largest islands in the Maldives. It hasn’t yet been overly commercialised, so you can expect privacy and a more rustic island vibe when you stay in Maafushi. Note that the south of the island is where you’d want to stay since most of the beaches are there. In other parts of the island, you’ll find the Maafushi prison, their energy plant, and other local institutions.
Male itself has various things to offer those couples who mainly want to explore and immerse themselves in the culture of Maldivians. You’ll be able to plan a day trip with sightseeing places such as the Sultan Mosque, Grand Friday Mosque, Male’s National Museum, Tsunami Monument, and the Fish Market.
When you decide to take on this trip, make sure you’ll have everything that you might need to make it more satisfying. For instance, staying at The Somerset Hotel Maldives means you can take advantage of their promos. Right now, there’s a promo badge for 30% off your accommodation available on their website. All you need to do is book direct on their page and save big on your Male Maldives accommodation.
No romantic getaway could be memorable than a tour around the most stunning islands in the world. So book those plane tickets and pack those bags, you’re in for a one-of-a-kind trip with your loved one.
