With over 1,000 different islands making up the Maldives, it can be virtually impossible to choose which one to stay on when going on holiday there. Each one boasts golden sandy beaches and clear blue waters that make you feel as if you have just stepped into a postcard. For those who just can’t choose which island to go to, a cruise aboard the Atoll Explorer could be just the answer.
Cruises are perfect for those who want more from their holiday than simply sitting on a beach all day. As well as this it is the perfect way to see more of an area than you would normally be able to. Obviously it would be impossible to see every single island in the Maldives but there are a few that shouldn’t be missed.
The island of Laguna is absolutely breathtaking and will provide you with memories that will never be forgotten. There is plenty to keep guests entertained on the island from restaurants and bars to activities and a spa. As well as a gym and spa holiday makers can spend their time playing tennis, relaxing in the steam pool, cooling down in the swimming pool or participate in water sports. A perfect end to the day while on Laguna Island in the Maldives is at the sunset bar where you can enjoy the truly stunning Maldivian sunset with friends or family.
The deserted island of Madivaru is perfect for travellers who are keen to explore the exciting sea life around the Maldives. Here divers can see white tip reef sharks, tunas, barracudas, hammerhead sharks, dolphins and much more. Madivaru is the best shark sighting spot in the whole of the Maldives so is ideal for those who are fans of the intriguing creatures.
For something a bit different when visiting the Maldives, Malé is a must. The unique and quaint island boasts mosques, markets, shopping, places to eat and much more. A trip to the Singapore Bazaar comes highly recommended whilst in Malé because this is one of the best places to buy local handmade products and typical Maldivian souvenirs.
It’s not only the many beautiful islands in the Maldives that will help to make any holiday special. Half the reason why cruises are so enjoyable is because there is so much to do onboard so when travellers aren’t off exploring there is plenty to keep them busy. From the sundeck and swimming pool to local dancing on board there is plenty to ensure that a cruise around the Maldives will be an unforgettable experience.
