Left to the mercy of the soft, rolling Indian Ocean, the islands of the Maldives have been sculpted and shaped into undoubtedly one of the most beautiful tropical locations in the world.
From the dusty beaches of the northern atolls (Island) to the earthy sea huts and the fishing villages of the southern islands, the entire nation can be found scattered across the turquoise waters some distance from the Indian subcontinent.
Most visitors will land in the throbbing, throbbing city of Malé, huddled together on its own island and with spice-scented markers and grand mosques.
Most also don’t wait long before crashing into seaplanes or boats and heading to the glistening private bays of their chosen resort, where infinity pools and overwater cabanas are the norms.
More recently, new local guesthouses and wave discovery have begun to transform the Maldives from a honeymoon spot to a surfing, adventure, and backpacking destination – paradise is now open to all, it seems.
Here are the Best Places to Visit for Your Maldives Holidays:
1. Male City The Capital:
The city of Male, the capital of the Maldives atolls, buzzes with scooters and cars and Indian bazaars full of coconuts and spices, it has the hectic feel of a crowded place in a slot that is too small for it.
And that’s because it is.
Though rarely visite (most travelers bypass the city on seaplanes heading straight to their resort), the city is cram on a pint-sized islet on North Male Atoll.
However, it manages to fit some fascinating sights between its streets, such as the 17th-century Friday Mosque and the gold-tipped Islamic Center.
Male Market is another must-have, just be sure to brush up on your haggling skills.
2. Hulhumale Island Waiting for Your Maldives Holidays:
The situation just across the crystal clear waters from the capital of Male City. The Crystal clear water of this island of Hulhumale is constantly growing and growing as more and more land is reclaimed to house the city’s sprawling urban tendrils.
It is also home to the Velana International Airport, which is the main gateway to these paradise islands for most.
Don’t be put off by how that all sounds, though – Hulhumale is actually a charming place.
It has a beautiful, albeit man-made beach on its eastern side, a cluster of leafy neighborhoods, a glass-roofed mosque, and planned boardwalks over the Indian Ocean.
Maafushi may not have the sprawling luxury resorts and opulent 5-star hotels that many of its close siblings have, but it does have a lot of charm.
Sadly devastated by the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, the site has been busy rebuilding its salt-washed fishing piers and laborious sailors’ cabins for the past decade.
Something that has helped is the opening of rights to local guesthouses, which is transforming Maafushi into one of the best off-the-beaten-path island getaways for budget travelers.
Of course, you can expect beautiful beaches with palm trees, waves, and a handful of little homey cafes on the shore.
4. Utheemu Waiting for Your Maldives Holidays:
Located at the northern tip of Haa Alif Atoll, the northernmost of all the Maldives island chains welcomes you. This beautiful site of Utheemu holds a special place in the history of this archipelago nation.
That’s because it was once the home of the revered Sultan Mohamed Thakurufaanu. This leader is credit with driving Portuguese invaders from the islands in the late 16th century.
Of course, there are the usual bright white sands and waves of the Indian Ocean you will just enjoy. Here they are dot with heritage sites like the Utheemu Ganduvaru. The Utheemu Ganduvaru is the beautiful wooden-built palace where the respected leader grew up.
When the British arrived in the run-up to WWII, Gan was transformed into an airbase. The locals were sent to live on the next island in Seenu Atoll.
That was Feydhoo, which is today a beautiful picture of life live in the Maldives.
Come stroll the winding trails and sample the seafood curry with the locals; the welcome is always warm.
