Maldives Luxury Yachting Guide

Known as the pearls of the Indian Ocean, you could be mistaken for thinking the small chain of Islands that make up the Maldives are a luxury treasure just waiting to be discovered. Consisting of 26 atolls, these ancient coral islands of unbridled natural beauty provide the perfect indulgent break from reality.

There is no better way to truly explore and experience the natural splendour of the Maldives than to sail the islands at your own leisurely pace. Of the thousands of islands that make up the Maldives, only approximately 200 are inhabited, making them the perfect cruising ground to discover your very own private paradise.

Sea-life
In a country where the sea accounts for the majority of the territory, it’s easy to understand how the ocean lies at the heart and soul of the Maldives. Dine on seafood just pulled from the ocean and cooked in front of your eyes, or indulge in a fresh fruit cocktail with ingredients from the very islands that surround you. Water sports can be found on any of the resort-laden islands where windsurfing and sailing opportunities abound.

Scuba Diving

The Maldives have some of the most amazing scuba diving spots in the world, the tranquil seas offering an amazing variety of sea life where divers can find themselves face-to-face with rays, turtles, lobsters, and schools of fish hundreds deep. It is even possible to find yourself swimming by a pod of dolphins or whale sharks, which is an experience beyond compare.

Fishing
Fishing is the life blood of this small country, and Big Game fishing in the azure waters is the experience of a lifetime. Due to the lie of the land, the coral atolls of the Maldives provide one of the biggest and most diverse homes to sea life in the world, creating the perfect opportunity to secure a mammoth and trophy-worthy catch using fishing methods unique to the experienced Maldives fisherman.

Spas
Hosting some of the most relaxing and unique spas in the world, a visit to one of the many luxury spa and health centres in the Maldives is a must. Centring their techniques around the water that shapes their home, Maldives spas are in a world of their own. Think swirling vitality pools, crystal steam rooms, volcanic hot stones and stimulating ice fountains.
