Maldives Island Hopping
Take a chance to visit the tropical destination that keeps tourists dreaming of white sandy beaches and turquoise clear waters: the Maldives.
Your trip will start in Malé, the thriving capital city, which occupies every meter of the Malé island, and is one of the most densely populated cities in the world. Here you will witness the Maldivian daily life while wandering the small cobbled side-streets, visit the National Museum and the Mulee aage Palace, and also have a little time for souvenir shopping before it’s time to board your dhoni (the local boats) for your transfer to Thulusdhoo, in the Kaafu Atoll, where your first stop will be the tropical beach you had been dreaming of all along. With a fantastic house reef within walking distance you’ll be able to snorkel to your hearts content: the true value of the Maldives comes from the waters and you’ll get to really delight in them.
During the following days there is a vast range of activities and excursions, that will introduce you to the splendors of this tropical paradise. Because they each have their unique features, heading out to a different snorkeling reef everyday is a great idea to explore reefs around Kaafu, but there are also a lot of uninhabited islands around where you can snorkel and spend the day enacting your dreams of being Robinson Crusoe. You can also have your first paddle boarding experience: the latest fad sweeping beaches around the world, where you stand on a large surf board and float around with a kayaking paddle.
When you’re tired of aventure you can take a Maldivian cooking class – and witness how they have perfected the culinary art of preparing fish – pay a visit to the local Imam, or take a trip to one of the several resorts, where you will be able to enjoy a cold beer, the spa and other luxury amenities. However, you can’t say you have been to the Maldives if you haven’t taken part in a scuba diving course in one of the most breathtaking settings in the world: Thuslusdhoo has its own diving school, and this is the perfect opportunity to learn how to dive in paradise.
