Maldives: Introduction

The Maldives are a chain of beautiful islands rising out of the Indian Ocean. Made up of 1,190 coral islands grouped into 26 atolls – a collection of coral islands encircling a lagoon – the Maldives have always been a favourite destination for romantic holidays, and are extremely popular with honeymooners worldwide. With Monarch, the UK’s leading independent tour operator, you can enjoy this incredible destination in the lap of luxury. Package holidays to the Maldives are available now, so what are you waiting for?

Weather

As you would expect from a tropical island paradise, the Maldives are blessed with a warm climate all year round. The island chain is nestled in the Indian Ocean, which acts as a heat buffer, absorbing, storing, and slowly releasing the heat of the sun. This means the temperature always remains pleasant to high, varying between 24°C and 33°C throughout the year. While it can get humid, the constant cool sea breezes keep the air moving, keeping the temperature comfortable.

Where to Stay

The most populated of the Maldives Islands, Malé is situated in the middle of the island chain. Malé is the perfect base from which to start your holiday, allowing you to find your own paradise in the island chain. The enduring beauty of the Maldives is heightened by the fact that many of the islands aren’t populated and are only accessible by boat, so you can stretch out on the pure white sand and listen to the crystal clear waves lap gently against the shore without the press of humanity closing in. If there’s such a place as heaven on earth, it’s probably here!

Each island in the Maldives is a paradise in its own right, guaranteed to charm and inspire. Bandos, one of the larger Maldivian islands, has great facilities and caters to couples and families alike. Paradise Island is similarly luxurious, and Eriyadu Island offers the iconic water bungalows associated with the ideal Maldivian holiday. If you still want to explore this world-renowned destination, but you’re looking for something more affordable in terms of accommodation, Monarch also offers a range of options that cater to every budget, meaning that you don’t have to win the lottery to enjoy a holiday in the Maldives!

Maldives Activities

The Maldives has an incredible array of activities, both on the islands, and at sea. Bandos, for example, has a first-class spa, making it an ideal place to relax. With the pristine turquoise blue sea at your fingertips, you might prefer to spend as much time on the beach. Why not dive in and try out the phenomenal scuba diving opportunities? This and snorkelling can get you up close to the Maldives fascinating sea life, such as the serene and gently whale shark, the largest fish in the ocean. Water-lovers can also indulge in the multitude of water sports and excursions offered including windsurfing, canoeing, sailing, waterskiing, surfing, and so much more. Many of the islands also have a Kids Club for those travelling with children with plenty of fun-filled activities for the little ones.
