Mix ultimate relaxation with exhilarating adventure on a holiday to The Maldives. Known for its white sandy beaches, warm turquoise waters and swaying palms, it’s no surprise it’s a dream destination which many reserve for special occasions and honeymoons.
On our island-hopping cruise, experience the very best of The Maldives from the luxury of the MV Yasawa Princess. Think sunset cruising, traditional fishing, beach barbecues and optional excursions in search of elusive manta rays or whale sharks. What makes these tiny islands so special is that they’re actually submerged volcanic mountains and coral reefs – in fact, just 1% of the Maldives is land, so one of the best ways to experience this inspiring archipelago is by boat. With an average sea temperature of 20-30 degrees, enjoy the pleasure of a swim in the Indian Ocean, look out for colourful tropical fish or simply unwind on the deck between sampling the amazing fresh produce of the island.
On the tour of Sri Lanka, there is also the chance to extend your holiday to experience the Maldives. Discover the Central Atolls on this captivating cruise, which explores the deserted islands of Hurasdhoo and Embudu, the soft white sands of Raiydhigaa and Alikoi Rah sandbank, a haven for spotting vibrant fish, turtles and rays in the natural reef.
