The Maldives consists of thousands of tiny islands scattered like emeralds across a glistening, turquoise ocean and is arguably the most alluring and romantic holiday destination in the world.
Abundant coral reefs surround soft white sand beaches bordered by lush, green palms. Tucked away amongst the flora you’ll find stunning beach villas but for that quintessential Maldives experience there’s nothing like watching the sun set from your own private water villa.
Many of the islands require an unforgettable flight by seaplane to reach them (usually between 20-50 minutes) although those closer to the airport can be reached by boat and there are several domestic airports too for additional transfer options.
British Airways flies direct from the UK to Maldives during the high season (Oct-Mar) but there are plenty of indirect options year-round via Dubai, a major transport hub for onwards flights to the Indian Ocean.
