I must say, Maldives has by far the prettiest ocean I have ever laid my eyes on. It is a color that I cannot even explain; it is just admirable in every way possible. Which by the way, the photos do not make justice, I promise you! You did not even have to snorkel or scuba dive to see the beautiful fishes and sharks. You could see them extremely clear by just looking down. There are also baby reef sharks that come to shore. They are super friendly and I couldn’t even believe it. If anything, they are more scared of you than you are of them. Snorkeling was breathtaking! Seeing the life under water and just admiring how beautiful god’s creation truly is, it is beyond a blessing. The coolest thing I saw while snorkeling was the “drop-off.” Which was seeing the shallow reef areas around the island and then it just drops super steep. It was seeing how the ocean goes from turquoise to dark blue but all under water, it was beyond stunning.
As soon as you arrive to the airport, your resort will transport you to your final destination. You will either take a boat or a sea plane to your resort. I remember stepping out of the airport and welp, there were the boats waiting. I mean, it wasn’t even a 20 second walk from the airport to the boat. It was literally right there! I must admit I was amaze. But I think I was more amaze at the color of the water than at the structure of the airport/transportations.
The resorts in Maldives also offer over the water bungalows. If you want to get the full Maldives experience, I recommend getting one. I cannot even describe how amazing is to see the sunrise/sunset from your patio and being able to wake up and start your day snorkeling without having to leave your room. The seclusion from being in a bungalow is priceless. On top of that, you may just get lucky and see a pod of dolphins playing in your backyard.
