Explore the glowing beach

In the Maldives, you will be treated to a truly spectacular natural phenomenon that turns the beach into a spread of glowing stars in the night. This wonderful and almost fantasy-like effect is caused by bioluminescent plankton that often appears in warm coastal waters. Most of the islands in the country are visited by plankton. It can happen anytime, so perhaps you need a bit of luck to be there when it happens.

 

Visit the National Museum

If you wish to learn about the history and heritage of this country, you must visit the wonderful National Museum in Malé. You can see artefacts, coins, stone objects, clothing, royal antiques and a lot of other interesting stuff preserved here.

There are several amazing restaurants here, such as Reethi Restaurant, Fresh in the Garden and Bombay Darbaar, serving great food.  Do try local dishes like Keemia, Garudhia, and Fihunu Mas during your holiday in the Maldives.

 

Ride the Dhoni boat

These boats prove to be best rides when you are looking for a cruise boat for smaller groups of people. Book this tour if you wish to explore the real Maldives. Along with enjoying adventures like snorkelling, you can visit traditional fishing villages and meet the locals.
