Maldivian cuisine is a mix of Arabic, Indian, Sri Lankan and Oriental flavors! Must-try fish dishes in the Maldives are Mas Huni & Fihunu, but if you are not into fish, then opt for Bambukeylu Hiti.
A traditional Maldivian meal mainly consists of rice and garudhiya (fish broth) while lime, chili and onions are served as side dishes.
There is a wide diversity of activities to do in Maldives, which are usually organized by the hotel or the resort you are staying.
The most popular outdoor activities in the Maldives are snorkeling, scuba diving, canoeing, catamaran sailing, trekking, and swimming, while boat tours are popular as well.
The local dishes of the Maldives mainly consist of fish, more particularly, tuna while they are distinguished for their spicy and hot flavor.
Coconuts are also a main ingredient in most Maldivian main dishes and can be served in many forms, like milk or coconut oil (usually used to deep fry foods).
The majority of the snacks in Maldives are fish-based and called hedhikaa. Some popular must-try snacks include bajiya, gulha, keemia, kulhi borkibaa, masroshi and theluli mas.
Delicious types of Maldivian vegetable curries are bashi, tora, barabo, and chichanda, but the most delicious one you must eat in the Maldives, is cooked with diced fresh tuna, known as mas riha.
Since the Maldives is an Islamic nation, alcohol is banned for the locals. However, that does not apply on the resorts, as they are allowed to serve all types of alcohol!
Do not miss to taste the outstanding food tradition of the Maldives while having a romantic dining experience under the setting sun or the starry night sky.
The beaches of the Maldives are widely popular for their stunning landscapes, golden sand, crystal blue waters, and outstanding swimming conditions.
The majority of the beaches in the Maldives are private, usually owned by the hotels and resorts and that's why you may find one resort per island, except in Male.
There are a couple of public beaches in Male, however, they are surely not as beautiful as the ones on the small islands.
Go Kayaking in the Maldives with a transparent Kayak and explore the natural sea wonders of this magical country.
