Nature has been extremely generous with the Maldives. The country is made up of 26 atolls and 1,200 islands, which entices millions of tourists every year. The enchanting blue waters, magnificent reefs, exotic islands, shiny beaches, and different types of water sports rein in visitors from across the globe. Many refer to it as a mini heaven on earth.

While this island country is famous for its water sports, visiting Maldives between December and April is highly recommended by Maldives tourism. Whether you are planning a family vacation, or instead an exotic honeymoon – here are five places that all Maldives holiday packages must include:

  1. Male

One of the most popular tourist destinations is North Male Atoll, which is located on the southern edge of Kaafu Male. Historically it was known as Mahal because it was the abode of royal dynasties.

    I haven’t visited the Maldives but the richness of the underwater environment there makes me want to visit them as soon as possible! I would love to go snorkeling and see the beautiful corals.

  2. Lara Dunning says:

    I haven’t been to the Maldives yet, but all of these locations look amazing. I think Sun Island would be at the top of my list, with a little beach time and spa time.

  3. Great post. We visited in March and it was incredible. Just paradise. The snorkelling was some of the best we’ve done so far. We did not visit the HP reef though so we’ll need to do that next time since we love snorkelling

  4. Wow! The more I read about the Maldives, the more I realise how much there is to see and do. I’ve always thought of it as mainly diving/surfing, or a honeymoon destination – now I’m starting to see there’s a lot more to it than that! And the closer I get to seriously thinking about booking a package!
