8 Mistakes to Avoid When Visiting the Maldives

Your holiday can be as expensive (or inexpensive) as you want it to be

Mistake 1: Assuming It's Too Expensive

Make sure you explore more than one island during your stay

Mistake 2: Not Island Hoping

During certain times of the year, shores across the republic become luminescent at night-time

Mistake 3: Missing the Bioluminescent Plankton

The islands are close to both South Asian and Middle Eastern hubs

Mistake 4: Not Seeing Neighboring Destinations

The Maldives is romantic but it’s the ideal vacation for families too

Mistake 5: Waiting Until Your Honeymoon

Immerse yourself in local life, sample local food, attend dance performances, or spend a day in a nearby village

Mistake 6: Excluding Local Culture

The sunshine is heavenly, but the 90-degree angle sun rays can also be harsh

Mistake 7: Forgetting to Be Sun Safe

Sadly, the Maldives won’t be around forever, so book your trip sooner rather than later

Mistake 8: Missing Out Due to Rising Sea Levels
