In dire need of some sun, sand and surf after being in lockdown? When the time is right, a holiday to the Maldives will be worth enjoying! Here are some things to keep in mind before you visit.
The Right Accommodation
Depending on your budget, you can choose from city hotels and guesthouses to private island resorts in Maldives including those belonging to Minor Hotels. Such island resorts that are part of international hotel brands provide a wealth of comforts as well as the chance to stay at beach or overwater villas.
Best Time to Visit
The weather is at its glorious and sunny best from November to April, with December to March being the peak season when rates will be higher too. While the monsoon season from May to October does bring rains, it won’t be all the time and you can still enjoy a fun holiday and relatively lower rates too.
Activities to Plan
Want more than just to work on a tan or indulge in spa rituals? Water sports in Maldives provide plenty of thrills with snorkelling being a highlight. You can also take a sunset cruise, go dolphin watching, tour local islands, picnic on uninhabited islands and even learn the art of cooking local dishes!
Transport in Maldives
Transport will generally be by seaplane, speedboat or ferry; depending on where a Maldives resort is located, you may have to use both seaplane and speedboat transfers. Ferries are relatively cheaper, though speedboats will cut down on travel time as will seaplanes which offer stunning views too.
