Imagining the feel of the warm night, salty ocean air that lingers a bit, the simple, light clothing that drapes over a sun kissed body. The midnight sky lit up with stars all around, moon flickering off of the water as each toe skims the surface. The sounds of the ocean caressing the beach and the sense of peace that comes from a quiet evening stroll.
Yes, the Maldives are certainly on the tippity top of my to visit list!
A total of 1,900 islands located in the Indian Ocean and part of Asia. This little piece of heaven calls you to work on your tan and experience every water sport that exists. The water is crystal turquoise-blue and features sharks dives, swimming with the mantas, snorkeling, and scuba diving. The island also has submarine, windsurfing, and sea plane tours, but the best part of the island has to be to take a week and live life at the spa. The island hotel rates are relatively pricey, but if you want perfection, this would be the place to go. The cheapest I have found in the area generally run at around $215 US Dollars per night.
But can you imagine waking up with this view each morning? My entire goal in life is to buy a little place on the beach where I can wake up and see the ocean as the sun rises above it and not get fully dressed for months on end. A bikini and a sarong is all that will be needed!
Temperature/Best Time to Visit
When is best time to go? Well, if you are basing you trip on temperature, you absolutely cannot go wrong. The temps range from an average of 86 degrees in July up to 90 degrees F in March (30-32 degrees C). The rainy season takes place from May to November and the most hours of sunlight fall between January to April.
While Dhivehi is the language spoken throughout the Maldives, English is also very common.
The culture consists of a South Asian influence. You will also find East African traditions incorporated into the area. This area is highly comprised of the Islamic faith and is rich in tradition.
