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?
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!
