There is no paradise on earth as the Maldives. This exotic beach destination is indeed where you should be in if you are truly looking for serenity and pristineness at its best. There is no Maldivian resort complete without its own private resort fringed along its own stretch of private beach and the size is the only aspect that determines how crowded the beaches can be from December through to April, peak tourist season.
Cocoa Island in the South Malé Atoll is charmingly isolated. This beach is dotted with just 36 rooms available at a resort here. This shallow lagoon is well-suited for kayaking and snorkeling owing to its pristine crystal clear waters. Ideal for children and known as one of the most unspoiled manmade beaches can be enjoyed at One&Only Reethi Rah, which is carved into small, secure bays that feature bath-like shallows.
The islands are sporadically forested, however, it does house a delicate underwater eco-system of coral that supports hundreds of fish species. North Malé Atoll Banana Reef is where the colorful bannerfish and Giant squirrelfish glide among the overhangs, caves, and soft coral. Lion’s head is where schools of grey reef sharks assemble, while the South Ari Atoll is where whale sharks reel in the outer reef.
Malé is one of the main Islands and high-rise capital of Maldives. It is home to the National Museum where you can gape at the ceremonial robes and opulent thrones that once were owned by the local Sultans. When in Maldives, do opt for a day or overnight cruise around the atolls that includes diving or snorkeling to capture breathtaking views of thriving coral reefs. Alternatively enjoy a Spa treatment overlooking the ocean through a glass-bottom treatment room that allows you to watch schools of fish during your rejuvenating massage session. It is a known fact that most travelers and tourists would choose one resort and seldom leave the lap of luxury they are bestowed with.
