Holidays in the Maldives are all about truly getting away from it all. Most of these tiny coral islands in the Indian Ocean have to be reached by speedboat or seaplane and the dramatic, scenic arrival adds to their charm. There isn't a great deal to do in on holiday in the Maldives except completely relax, which is why the island are such a hit with honeymooners and those seeking a quiet escape. Originally a specialist diving destination, the Maldives still boast some of the best marine life in the world, so snorkelling and diving are popular, as are sailing, fishing and other water sports. Other than that, kicking back and relaxing is the order of the day. From budget Maldives hotels to stunning spa retreats on stilts, accommodation in the Maldives is bound to be impressive. Chill out and take in the palm fringed beaches and impossibly clear seas. To capture just how beautiful this place really is, don't forget to pack a camera.

Things to see & do

There isn't an awful lot to do on a Maldives holiday, which is probably what makes it such a popular choice. If you can tear yourself out of your hammock, you really should snorkel on the worldclass reefs, or have a go at diving. Go fishing, enjoy a relaxing spa treatment at some hotels, or take an unforgettable sunset cruise.

Entertainment in the Maldives is hotel based and genuinely low key. Some accommodation lays on karaoke, local dancing shows and discos, but generally, holidays in the Maldives are about laying back and enjoying great food, bright stars and balmy, tropical evenings.

Food & drink

Freshly caught seafood is a true speciality in the Maldives. In most hotels, you'll find a good selection of buffets and international restaurants serving up everything from Chinese to Indian and Italian food. For a great value holiday in The Maldives, go all inclusive and make sure your drinks are included in the cost remember that you'll be staying on a remote island, so you'll only be able to buy food and drink from your hotel.
