MALDIVES ISLANDS

  • GlobeRovers Rating: 9 / 10
  • Buzz Line: "Beautiful beaches, crystal clean waters and rows of luxurious huts on stilts over the water - this is the Maldives - but its not just that!"
  • Eagle Eye: Located south-west of Sri Lanka and India, the Maldives is comprised of 25 atolls (a ring-shaped coral reef including a coral rim that encircles a lagoon partially or completely). Pick any atoll and an island and you will be amazed by the beauty.
  • Hot Spots: Globerovers highly recommend not to spend your time in the company of rich European tourists blowing $1000++ per day on luxurious accommodation and buffets prepared for kings. Choose an island with only one small guesthouse and spend your time knowing the locals and their way of life. Take daily trips to an uninhabited island and skinny dip in the beautiful coral waters. Even better, bring along your tent and other bare necessities and camp on an uninhabited island for a few days. Fish are plentiful if you can catch them, but please don't eat the amazing octopus.
  • The Low-down: Find out how to enjoy the Maldives on a down-to-earth budget while supporting the remote local communities rather than blowing tons of money on luxurious international resorts with Swiss bank accounts.
