An archipelago in the Indian Ocean, which has much to offer
The Maldives consists of 1196 islands, 220 inhabited and approximately one third of that used for tourism. Nearly everyday the islands are served from Germany by plane.
The actual flying time for a non-stop flight is approximately 9 to 10 hours.
All over the year the Maldives have a pleasantly warm and sunny weather. Even when it rains, the temperatures are between 28-30 °C.
Those are the facts about the Maldives.
Not even landed, you will be already rewarded with incredible colours. The view from above is breathtaking.
Malé is the capital and for 800 years the center of the island nation of Maldives. Due to the strong growth of the population the island had to be artificially increased.
Those who will look for the tranquility of the Maldives Islands, will leave Malé very quickly. By Dhoni, speedboat, aircraft or seaplane- depending on the selected island.
However, those who prefer the alternative program simply remains on the main island.
Whether a visit to the fish market, the oldest building of the Maldives- the Hukuru Miskiiy Mosque or the largest mosque of the Maldives, the Sultan Mohammed Thakurufaanu Mosque– there is plenty to explore.
Due to the temperatures and often gently sloping beaches, the islands are an ideal destination for families with small children.
Since the islands vary greatly on the size and price, you should look at the leisure offer and decide exactly according to your needs which island is suitable.
To name only a few different ones: Sun Island, Holiday Island, Filitheyo, Vilamendhoo, Biyadhoo, Maalifushi and Cocoa Island.
Pure relaxation on the beach, sunsets, tennis, yoga, windsurfing, swimming, snorkeling, jet skiing or kayaking, enjoying in the SPA, or Diving- everywhere is much to explore…!
And what you can see underwater?
Manta rays, eagle rays, sting rays, sharks, turtles, dolphins, moray eels, Napoleon fish, trigger fish … and whale sharks.
