Discover the Maldives
When you take advantage of a Maldives vacation package, you get ready to immerse yourself in paradise. Imagine palm trees moving elegantly in a soft breeze, with pristine beaches and peaceful waters right at your doorstep. A world that epitomises tranquility, in which the only concern you’ll have is the wonderful sights you are about to take in next.
Maldives travel packages are varied and will be an absolute spoil for romantic getaways, family vacations and trips with friends. Some of the ways you can enjoy this exquisite experience include:
Diving – This activity will allow you to observe spectacular coral reefs, a wide variety of fish species and even whales, dolphins and sea turtles. Apart from diving being a blast in itself, seeing these incredible creatures up close - and in their natural habitat - is an incomparable experience. And don’t worry, if you haven’t delved into the ocean before, you can always go to the Sea Explorers Diving School in Male to get started.
Days on the beach – You can also opt to stay close to your chosen resort and catch up on your tan with a book in one hand and a cocktail in the other. If seclusion is what you want, you can go on a cruise to one of the many uninhabited islands forming part of the Maldives.
Whale submarine – You can also view underwater life by means of this exhilarating passenger submarine. Be prepared to explore parts of the ocean that seem ever-so-inviting from your chosen accommodation. The trip lasts for an hour and a half, giving you plenty of time to see all the wonders of the blue waters that make up 99% of the Maldives.
Historic sites – Dating as far back as 1675, Hukuru Miskiiy is an ancient site in Male that is still used for daily prayers to this day. It is also known as the Old Friday Mosque and boasts artwork in the form of intricate lacquer work and wooden carvings. The National Museum, which is part of the Maldivian Royal Palace remains, is also worth a visit. Here, you can view artifacts and relics - some of which date back to the 11th century. You can also take a stroll through the surrounding Sultan’s Park and relax amidst the trees and flowers that form part of it.
Whether you want to laze around on ethereal beaches or explore seemingly unchartered ocean territories, nothing but pure bliss awaits you. Select a Maldives vacation package now and get ready to find out what the meaning of relaxation truly is.
