A yachting holiday is often thought to be one of the trappings of the rich and famous. But the coral beauty of the Maldives islands is one location where sailing trips need not be the expensive excursions they are for more affluent and less discerning holidaymakers.
Exploring the islands in this manner makes those choosing to do so master of his or her destiny. There are more than 200 inhabited islands in the Maldives and although all have their own special attractions, only thorough exploration will uncover that sought after once in a lifetime spot where the best of memories are created.
To find the location or pastime that truly floats the boat for visitors to the Maldives, cruising around the islands to pick and choose from the multitude of activities taking place is a good way to experience much of what is going on and find that perfect island paradise – whatever it may be and wherever it may be found.
It seems obvious to say that ocean-orientated activities account for a great deal of the pleasure to be had in the Maldives. The sea, as the Maldivians are accustomed to saying, is the ‘heart and soul’ of the region.
The sea is also the source of the fine cuisine found in the Maldives. Fresh seafood and fresh fruit cocktails are the main culinary attractions, made from ingredients provided by the islands themselves.
