Why the Maldives are the Perfect Location for Your Next Vacation

Aug 30, 2022

Not sure where to go on your next vacation? Look no further than the Maldives, the ultimate tropical paradise with something to offer everyone! Cast like jewels in the Indian Ocean, the Maldives are composed of 1,200 islands. The main islands of the Maldives are located just south of India and Sri Lanka, in the Indian Ocean, with the country’s capital city being Male. 

The Maldives islands are scattered across 90,000 square miles (233,000 sq km) of ocean. The islands have been inhabited since around 5th century BC and were colonized by the Portuguese, Dutch, and British, but gained their independence in 1965. The island nation celebrates their independence on July 26th. The official language is Dhivehi which is a dialect of Sinhala; the language spoken in Sri Lanka. No worries, if you don't speak the language, because many people on the islands speak English.  

The Maldives Are Unique

The islands are spread out over 26 atolls; ringed shaped islands. From an aerial view, you can see the exact shape of the Maldives. With the average temperatures hovering around 86 degrees Fahrenheit and plenty of sunshine year-round, the Maldives are the perfect place to escape the cold weather. And because of its remote location and respect for the environment, it's an ideal spot for eco-tourists. From towering palm trees that reach up 100 feet into the sky to pink sand beaches lined with turquoise waters--you'll be entranced by its beauty. In fact, more than 60% of the country is under water and 20% is a marine reserve.  

The Maldives Offer Activities For Everyone

This country is known for its clear turquoise waters, white sandy beaches, and lush vegetation. In addition to this, there are many other reasons that make the Maldives perfect for your next vacation. The tour packages offered through Affordable World are leisurely and independent. Staying at an all-inclusive resort like Adaaran is never dull! You can partake in a game of beach volleyball or tennis with other guests among other activities. Perhaps bob over the lagoon on a kayak or stand-up paddle board, zoom across the waves on a jet ski or try windsurfing and catamaran sailing. 

For those who want to get a little adventurous, you can explore underwater life with a snorkel tour or even go diving in the different lagoons around the islands. Surfers, the Maldives are great for you too. Whether you're a beginner surfer or more advanced you can catch a few waves while there. If you're not a fan of swimming in the ocean, there are pools and jacuzzis on the property. Adaaran Resorts offer a variety of calm and soothing activities too. Treat yourself to a spa day at Chavana Spa and enjoy a deep tissue massage or a purifying facial. Of course, the ultimate relaxation is lounging on the beach or the deck of your villa.  Have some fresh juice from one of the local restaurants or order room service.
