As this idyllic island getaway destination continues to soar in popularity, we all know there are many reasons to travel to the Maldives, and each individual traveller will have his own list of wishes and priorities, but here are a few of the best reasons we know of to travel to Maldives.
1. Maldives Beaches
All travel in Maldives is done either by boat or plane, both of which give you plenty of time to soak up the amazing beach views. When you’re not dashing about the islands, you’ll enjoy lounging around on these incredible Maldivian beaches or enjoying the view of the Maldives beaches either from your hotel room, swimming pool or scuba diving live aboard.
2. Maldives Scuba Travel
Maldives scuba travel is widely considered to be some of the best dive travel in the world. The Maldives have been known as a scuba diving destination for many years now so you will find all dive crews and boat captains to be extremely experienced and knowledgeable about Maldives dive travel. There are many Maldives travel books and Maldives travel websites that will give you a good idea of what to expect from your Maldives scuba travel experience before you leave home and that will help you find the best deals and learn about the best time to visit. Just to give a quick overview of what to expect from Maldives diving travel, here are a few pointers.
The best Maldives dive travel experiences, and one of the main reasons people travel to Maldives is the liveaboard diving concept. A Maldives live aboard trip involves divers living aboard a cruising yacht for any length of time (usually 1 – 2 weeks) and doing a couple of dives a day from the liveaboard. When you’re not diving, you can enjoy other aspects of Maldives travel, including sunbathing, going to the beach, island hopping, fishing and generally relaxing. Maldives liveaboards come in a range of styles; you’ll find that whatever your budget and personal preference, there’ll be a scuba diving live aboard waiting for you in the Maldives.
Diving with a Whale Shark in the Maldives
Of course, there are opportunities to simply dive or snorkel from a resort’s dive centre, and that might be the right choice for you, but however you decide to discover the underwater world of the Maldives, one thing’s for sure – you won’t be disappointed!
A quick glance in any Maldives travel book will tell you that the Maldives is home to an amazing array of marine life, ranging from more than 15 varieties of shark, 2 types of turtles, several ray species and many types of eel, wrasse and tuna. The list is really endless, but a couple of the real “stars” of the Maldives dive travel world are the whale shark and the manta ray – definitely the country’s biggest aquatic attractions.
3. Aerial Views from Maldives Air Travel
One of the most enjoyable aspects of travel to the Maldives is the incredible views when travelling from the airport to your hotel or liveaboard, if you have the chance to travel by air. When researching your Maldives holiday on any Maldives travel blog, you’re sure to see many aerial photos of the islands, taken during Maldives air travel, which are simply spectacular. Aerial views of the islands really put into perspective how remote of a destination each of the islands really are and just how the colour of the ocean contrasts perfectly with that of the land. It really is the quintessential image of the tropical “islandscape”.

4. Visiting Secluded Maldives Islands
Following on from the idea of the quintessential island image is the opportunity to visit some of the Maldives’ desert islands. Many of the islands are completely uninhabited, or perhaps inhabited only by very small villages of people, who are only to happy to show you around their pristine island and introduce you to their way of life. Villagers will treat you to dances, feasts and other shows of their individual culture and visits to these islands are a very common part of Maldives cruise travel.
5. Incredible Maldives Marine Life
As you would expect from a world-class diving destination, the marine life in the Maldives is nothing short of spectacular. Expect to see brilliantly coloured coral formations, vibrant shoals of reef-dwelling fish, incredibly large pelagic species and, of course the magnificent whale shark. The Maldives is one of the few places in the world where you can expect to glimpse a whale shark throughout the year, which means that travel to Maldives is possible 365 days a year.
6. Spend quality time.
Put in your time and effort to make your family and loved ones feel close to your heart. At Luxury Maldives Resorts, all you have is the cloistered islands and time to invest on your family.

7. Barefoot island experiences.
The stretch of sandy white on all Maldives Luxury Resorts is all about fun in the sun. Whichever time of the year you come, Maldives is always sunny. Enjoy beach sports with your family, build a sandcastle with your kids, tan away on the white pearl beaches or enjoy your meals on the beach with the waves right next to you and the music of the sea to accompany you.
8. Peaceful heavens.

But in the Luxury Maldives Resorts, everything is designed for pure loosening and even the kids will enjoy the arrant peace and harmony.
14. Yachts, the floating luxury.
Well the fact that Maldives is mostly sea doesn’t have to be mentioned, but picture cruising away these waters in a floating yacht. Jumping off the deck and swimming in the middle of the ocean, exploring different coral sites, fishing with your family and having your catch grilled up for lunch or dinner? All reclusive and all that for just your family in an extremely spacious Yacht. Perfect isn’t it?

With both the resorts and the liveaboards in the Maldives, there is an extensive range of accommodation available.

This will include all scuba diving, meals and accommodation, but not alcoholic drinks. If you’re looking for a resort, the prices vary enormously – it would be unfair to put a price, but you can definitely find everything from mid-range hotels to absolute luxury.
Book your vacation today and enjoy a fun filled never forgetting trip of Maldives with your loved one’s.
