Make a holiday rental, home, or cottage in Maldives your home away from home

Holidaymakers looking to find a hot and beautiful place to stay should give The Maldives a try. These wonderful islands located in the Indian Ocean offer many things for holidaymakers to see and do. Visitors will find numerous different places to stay including self catering accommodation, villas, chalets, B&Bs and apartments.

Things to do on holiday to Maldives

The beautiful white sandy beaches with palm trees make this an idyllic place to relax and sunbathe. The deep blue sea is not only great for swimming but also snorkelling and diving with beautiful reefs and colourful fish to be seen. Many other watersports are popular here too such as sailing, surfing, windsurfing, water skiing, jet skiing, parasailing, kayaking and kite surfing.

Holidaymakers can also relax with a range of spa treatments such as facials, massages and other things to cure those aches and pains. Many resorts offer night fishing trips with crew members showing guests how to use the lines and hooks. On Male visitors can head to the Olympus, where they can watch Maldivian and Indian films.

There are a few cafes and restaurants here with a variety of dining options including plenty of local dishes as well as influences from countries like Indonesia and Italy. Some shops and markets can be found on the islands to buy food and drink from as well as gifts and souvenirs. Self catering holidaymakers will find a supermarket on Male, which sells fresh fruit and vegetables.

Places to visit on holiday to Maldives

If holidaymakers are in need of a break from sunbathing and watersports there are many interesting places to visit on the Maldives. Not all are above water such as the Whale Submarine, which takes visitors on an excursion to see the reefs. Competent divers may like to visit the Wreck of the Maldive Victory, which sank in 1981. There are religious sights to visit here too such as the Hukuru Mosque, which is the oldest in the country. The Maldives is home to a couple of galleries and museums. The National Art Gallery and the National Museum on Male are both well worth a visit. Surrounding the National Museum is Sultan’s Park, which was once the palace grounds of the Sultan and is now an attractive place full of trees and flowers.

Weather in Maldives

The Maldives has a tropical climate with two monsoon seasons. These are the dry northeast monsoon from December to March, and the wet southwestern monsoon from May to November. The latter has more strong winds and rain. The temperature remains consistent at around 30 degrees centigrade throughout the year.
