Maldives Overview

The Maldives works as eye tonic for most journey-jaded of travellers landing up on the shores of this island heaven. Velvety white sands, balmy turquoise waters, a romance-filled milieu and tropical bliss - the Maldives may be small on size but it holds the bragging rights to call itself one of the most beautiful countries on the planet. Adventurers and honeymooners have taken to the island nation like fish to water! And why not! The 26 coral atolls offer world-class dive spots, and the presence of myriad luxury properties amidst the tropical greens ensure the love birds are guaranteed both seclusion and opulence. Of its more than 1200 islands floating across the Indian Ocean, only 200 are inhabited. This means a lot of exclusive and highly tempting remote retreats for people.

Top Destinations in Maldives

Ibrahim Nasir International Airport, also known as Male International Airport, is where most international flights land at. The capital city Male is a bustling place with the feel and looks of a very urbane cosmopolitan hub. Of course, there are very obvious traces of small-town charm with beautiful, small markets and tidy streets. Within Male, people can look to explore top tourist-interest sites like National Museum, Grand Friday Mosque, Islamic Center and Hukuru Miski. Of course, the Maldives is most known for its beach frolics and oceanic exquisiteness. Addu Atoll is a hugely popular avenue among travellers spending money on air tickets for flying into the Maldives.

Flight Tickets to Maldives

With emergence of the Maldives as a premier Indian Ocean holiday destination, a number of airlines have started offering direct/indirect flights to Maldives from all corners of the globe. Hugely popular among European vacationers as a winter sun destination, the Maldives witnesses a great influx of British tourists during the months of December to March. To cater to the demand, a number of British and other carriers run flights to Male from the UK's largest airport, London Heathrow. Along with LHR, a number of carriers provide tickets on flights originating from London Gatwick. Some of the popular ones are Emirates, Qantas Airways and British Airways. Most of the Gatwick- Male flights operated by these airlines are multi-stop flights.
