TRIP SUMMARY

The Maldives is one of the most stunning holiday destinations. It's a country comprised of over a thousand coral islands in the Indian ocean - only around 200 of them are inhabited. The crystal clear waters and stunning marine life make this such an ideal place for scuba diving. The Maldives may well be the most beautiful islands you will ever see, but they have only become a tourist attraction in recent decades. Today the Maldives attracts increasingly well-off travellers, and you will find wonderful restaurants, hotels and top quality service as a result.  On this sailing trip you'll travel around the various islands on a yacht. You'll have plenty of chances to scuba dive, enjoy luxury spa treatments and to wine and dine on the beautiful islands. With over a thousand islands to see, what better way to travel the Maldives than by yacht?

Travel Info

It's important to be up-to-date with the latest travel advice to The Maldives and the laws in every destination.

LGBT RIGHTS IN The Maldives The UK's Foreign and Commonwealth office provides information to LGBT travellers through its 'Travel Aware' campaign.

Whilst by law being gay is illegal, many gay couples choose to travel to The Maldives without any problems. Public displays of affection are not acceptable in The Maldives - but that applies to all couples. All of the resorts we feature have successfully hosted gay couples before without incident.

It is important to note that the law in The Maldives does pose risks to gay people. However what our service offers are hotels and resorts with whom we have had extensive discussions and they ensure that as a part of the LGBT community you will receive a respectful welcome from them. There remain risks under the law but our gay-friendly resort and hotel partners will help you to enjoy their countries as freely as possible.
