Travel Tips

Absolutely! Your upcoming trip to Male, Eydhafushi, and Thinadhoo in the Maldives sounds certainly exciting. Here are some travel tips to make your journey even more memorable:
Best Time to Visit:
The best time to visit the Maldives is during the dry season, between November and April. These months witness the most sun and the least rain.
Route and Accessibility:
Male has the main international airport, and from there, you can take domestic flights or speed boats to other islands like Eydhafushi and Thinadhoo.
Altitude and Acclimatization:
The Maldives has the lowest altitude on the globe, which means you won't have to worry about acclimatizing. However, if you are planning to do any diving, remember to follow the guidelines to avoid decompression sickness.
Accommodation and Booking:
There is a wide range of accommodation available from budget guesthouses to sheer luxury resorts. Getting your accommodation booked in advance, especially during the peak season, would be wise.
Clothing and Essentials:
Pack light clothing because of the tropical climate. Don't forget your swimsuits and beachwear for the ocean. Sunscreen is a must in the Maldives, as are hats and shades.
Health and Safety:
Tap water is not safe to drink in most islands of Maldives. Stick to bottled water. Do not forget to take any prescribed medications, and check your travel insurance covers any watersports you plan to do. Remember to respect oceans, do not touch marine life while diving or snorkeling.
Local Etiquette and Respect:
Maldivians are primarily Muslims, and they appreciate decency in dressing. When visiting the non-resort islands, it is respectful to wear modest clothing as a gesture of respect towards locals and the culture. Avoid alcohol consumption on locally inhabited islands as alcohol is prohibited.
