Pristine white sand, palm trees and perfectly clear warm turquoise waters
The Maldives are home to some of the very best scuba diving in the world. Even if you’re not a diver, snorkelling in the warm waters offers wonderful opportunities to spot a wide variety of marine life. Some resorts have their own diving schools, whilst others have their own reefs and you may even see whale sharks.
The southern atolls are almost entirely untouched by man and you can visit some totally uninhabited islands. The northern atolls are home to a dazzling array of underwater wildlife and scuba diving is highly recommended here.
Accommodation varies from the fabulous to the super luxurious, in a range of rooms from garden villas to overwater bungalows with private access to the shallows via your own set of steps. Spas are a feature of the Maldives and a wide range of treatments are available.
We advise that you seek advice on recommended vaccinations and precautions from a health professional – either a GP, a practice nurse, a pharmacist or a travel health clinic – ideally at least eight weeks before departure. Visit NHS Fit for Travel for Maldives specific guidance.
