The only way to describe the blinding white sands and sparkling blue waters of the Maldives is perfection and the ideal definition of paradise. The archipelago of the Maldives is a thrilling flyover in a seaplane, but to experience the crystal clear blue waters by boat is a truly stunning scene. The Maldives are composed of a submerged mountain ridge, and the islands have long been a welcome sight on the horizon among sailors– a respite from the open waters of the Indian Ocean.
The islands are famed as an idyllic honeymoon destination but the archipelago of shimmering atolls makes a fantastic setting for any holiday getaway. There is plenty to do, with world-class diving, snorkeling, and water sports. If relaxing on the beach or poolside is more your speed, there is plenty of that too.
When chartering a yacht in the Maldives, the climate is warm year-round. There is a monsoon season but because the archipelago is located on the equator, monsoons are milder than neighboring countries.
