A naturally beautiful archipelago of islands with pristine sugar-soft beaches, and crystal clear aquamarine lagoons, the coral atolls of the Maldives are scattered like stepping stones across the Indian Ocean, just north of the equator. The country has 1,192 of them, and the norm is that one luxury resort takes up an entire island. With an average year-round temperature of 30°C, this is your archetypal paradise island destination.
It offers some of the earths’ most stunning sunsets, some of the best dive sites in the world, and an abundance of manta rays (November to April) for snorkellers, and surfing. Go for yoga breaks to diving expeditions and from wedding ceremonies to spa experiences designed to nourish mind, body and soul. With direct flights from London to Maldives taking less than 10 hours, you can be in paradise sooner than you think.
Most visitors fly into Maldives International Airport in the capital city, Malé, then head out to their resort by seaplane, or speedboat, from there.
