The ultimate island escape
The Maldives are, quite simply, nature-designed heaven on Earth. Almost every one of the country’s 1,200 islands boasts a world-class white powder beach and luminous waters in that unique shade of eggshell blue. Snorkel in warm waters – no wetsuit needed – to discover dazzling coral walls, magnificent caves and schools of tropical fish in vivid rainbow shades glide between reefs. More experienced divers can head deeper to spot manta rays, turtles and whale sharks, the largest fish in the world.
The Indian Ocean promise endless paradisiacal watersports spots, but nowhere does it better than the Maldives. Head to the Eastern side of Meemu Atoll for surf spots that will thrill; true daredevils destinations include Mulee Point and Veyvah Point. Ride the warm offshore surf of Thaa Atoll on a shortboard. Snorkel in the crystal clear waters of Villingili, where deep sea fish are illuminated by the near-permanent sunshine. A Maldives yachting holiday offers endless aquatic adventure perfect for a family charter.
