With each luxury resort set on its own private island, a holiday in the Maldives is an otherworldly retreat from the buzz of daily life.
• Marvel at the atolls of the Maldives as you fly over them in a little seaplane.
• Sip champagne on an idyllic sunset cruise on a dhow, traditional wooden boats where the captain deftly steers the rudder with his foot.
• Swim with whale sharks – the gentle giants of the ocean – in South Ari Atoll.
• Plant coral on the reef, a special experience that helps to highlight the plight of this essential but fragile part of the marine world.
When to visit
The best weather is December to February, with low humidity, blue skies and only occasional rain, and pricing reflects that. Temperatures peak in March and April and prices tend to come down, with the lowest season being May-November (except August for school holidays) when there is a higher chance of rain and storms.
What to pack
Temperatures rarely drop below 25C, so take plenty of lightweight clothing. The Maldives is a Muslim country, so dress respectfully when in public places such as Malé, or if visiting local inhabited islands.
