The Maldives is a nation of islands in the Indian Ocean, that spans across the equator. With an average temperature of 30 degrees Celsius between October and April, the country is comprised of 1,192 islands grouped in 26 atolls that stretch along a length of 871 kilometres. A yacht is the ideal way to explore the tiny jewel-like islands rimmed with white, soft sand and clear shallow waters.
The Maldivian atolls are known for their pristine islands and bursting underwater wildlife, creating an excellent holiday destination for all ages and group sizes, offering both relaxing beach escapes, and action packed activities to explore. The Maldives is renowned for its abundance of deep sea fishing, reef diving and snorkelling in the numerous turquoise lagoons all of which is easily accessible by yacht.
After 110 days of closing the borders, on 15th July, 2020, the Maldives reopened its borders to international tourists.
However, guests visiting the Maldives by yacht are unable to enter resorts but can have inter island and intra atoll cruising, as well as visiting uninhabited sandbanks and islands.
Presently at the Maldives the following activities can still be done by guests staying on a yacht:
Visiting the numerous luxury resorts that are scattered across the atolls is a top highlight the Maldives has to offer during a yacht cruise. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions, Yacht to Resort movement is presently not allowed so restaurant bookings and resort visits cannot be organised.
