With shallow turquoise waters to die for, endless sandy beaches and wonderfully luxurious accommodation, the Maldives really are the ultimate desert island paradise. Perfect for a relaxing beach holiday or a luxury honeymoon, the Maldives archipelago is one of the world’s most desirable destinations. For those seeking romance, the Maldives offers enviably luxurious accommodation available, indulgent spas and remote atolls to escape to. The Maldives are also known for their 200 species of coral, and 300 species of fish including the rare and majestic whale shark and colourful Oriental Sweetlips. As well as superb diving and snorkelling, you can also explore the local islands’ rich cultural heritage and spend time with their charming residents, still leaving plenty of time for bliss in the sunshine. Scott Dunn’s highlights for the Maldives:

  • Dine at the spectacular underwater Ithaa restaurant, 16 feet below the ocean, you can watch the abundant marline life as you enjoy a fusion of Maldivian and western cuisine.
  • Head to the remote North Huvadhoo atoll for its rich wealth of marine life and exceptional corals, perfect for diving.

Climate Guide

The Maldives have a tropical climate with abundant rainfall and moderately high temperatures around the year. The table for Minicoy is representative of the northern islands. The islands near or south of the equator have rain more evenly distributed throughout the year or a maximum fall in the period November to March. Daily hours of sunshine average three to four in the wetter months and as much as eight to nine in the drier season. The northern islands are very occasionally affected by violent storms as tropical cyclones develop in the Arabian Sea between August and November. These bring very strong winds and torrential rain.
