Fabulous Maldives holidays with Voyage Prive
Sand and sea, and everything in between
For picture postcard sunsets decorated by coconut palm trees and flawless, white sandy beaches, look no further than the Maldives. A small cluster of islands wallowing in the waves of the Indian Ocean, only 1% of this archipelagic nation's land is above sea level! Yet that doesn't leave a shortage of things to see and exciting activities to partake in, whether you're just looking to bask in the sun or try one of the many water sports on offer.
Take a dip in the tropical seas
With the majority of the islands' land dominated by the sea, there is an abundance in activities and excursions that take full advantage of it. The Maldives is a world leading water sports hub, and water skiing, kayaking or wakeboarding on the spectacularly clear surf will make you feel as if you're shooting your very own Hollywood film. If you think the islands' scenery is something to behold, just wait until you scrape below the surface of the waves surrounding it. Snorkel or scuba dive among a treasure chest of coral reefs in every colour imaginable, and the 2,000 species of fish that call these reefs home.
If you'd prefer to stay dry but don't want to miss out, there are plenty of exciting excursions to see whales, dolphins and sharks in their natural habitats. With over 23 different types of whale and dolphin having been spotted around the islands, including the seldom-sighted Longman's Beaked Whale, holidays in the Maldives really do offer the chance to experience once in a lifetime opportunities.
So many ways to relax
The Maldives is synonymous with relaxation, and not least because of its famous, pristine beaches, popular with sunbathers. This nation is home to traditional spa treatments that use oils from their national tree, the coconut palm, as well as the white sand from their beaches to promote wellness and healing. There is also the opportunity to partake in yoga and other exercise classes, taught by expert instructors.
After a morning of rejuvenating exercise and spa treatments, take a shopping trip to the boutiques and try some of the renowned fish-inspired cuisine at a local eatery. Round off the evening at one of the underwater nightclubs for a truly unique experience! Does a holiday in the Maldives sound like everything you've ever dreamed of?
