Travel and Local Information Guide


Updated Sep, 2021

'Bucket-list destination', 'tropical oasis', 'paradise on earth' : Get ready to trot out the clichés, because when it comes to the Maldives every one of them is accurate. 'Luxury isolation' is the term to best describe the Maldives. The sheer beauty of the coral reefs, the translucent ever-changing colors of the Indian Ocean, the isolation, indigenous vegetation and friendly people are legendary, and rightly so—the Maldives lives up to the hype. The epitomy of a sea, sand and sun holiday, visitors lap up the tropical island paradise image.

But it's best to be well informed of your destination before winging off into the unknown so have a read through our detaled guide to the Maldives to make sure you know exactly what is waiting for you in this lovely part of the world.
