Lovely Lagoons and Silken Beach Sand in the Maldives
The term tropical beach paradise was probably coined with the Maldives in mind. This secluded Indian Ocean haven, lying southwest of India and Sri Lanka, is as gorgeous undersea as it is above.
Underwater, a clown triggerfish darts past while you’re focusing on a school of three-striped damselfish. A stingray glides along the sandy sea floor, while a slender yellow trumpetfish disappears into the boulder coral nearby. Snorkeling with a busy bunch of neon fish surely rates among life’s most joyful experiences.
Turquoise or aquamarine, cerulean or azure: Blue is the dominant color of this archipelago of 1,190 islands. Private island resorts sprawl exclusively over 80 different islands, providing a range of accommodations: eco-conscious, family-friendly, or over-the-top luxurious and accessed only via seaplane. Enchanting Travels destination specialists are familiar with the ins and outs of the choices available, and know how much this holiday means to you. We’ll understand your preferences, and secure for you the most desirable resort rooms, whether it’s a water villa over a lagoon or a bungalow in a garden.
Walking past colorful houses and shops on Maafushi island, travelers on a day trip there (or to the capital Malé), can get a sense of local Maldivian life. For the most part though, fixate on simple pleasures: cherishing time in the sun, swimming in shallow lagoons, or walking on silken sands. When you seek some activity, there’s the full range of water sports available from scuba diving and snorkeling, to paddle boarding and jet skiing. We suggest you follow your activity session with a round of indulgence and relaxation at your resort spa.
