Oh, the Maldives, the crystal clear waters, the golden orange sunsets and some of the most diverse marine life in the world. We've practically packed our bags and are at the airport, ready to go as we write this. JK, it's not January yet. January is one of the best months to visit this tropical paradise and go island hopping to your heart's content. From BBQ's on private islands to swimming alongside whale sharks and turtles, there's so much more to the Maldives than floating water bungalows. Sure the white sandy beaches and turquoise waters are magical but have you really seen The Maldives if you haven't immersed yourself in local culture and ventured off the beaten path? Temperatures are around the late 20's to early '30s, cooling slightly off into the nighttime, so a perfect evening to lay under the stars. Typically known to be one of the honeymoons destinations, we explore The Maldives more than just its 5* resorts. We've released 2 brand new tours that give you a Tru Maldives island hopping experience without breaking the bank. Minimum costing maximum adventure, you feel? Join us on with our 8 Day Maldives Island Hopper or our 8 Day Maldives Sailing Adventure. Check out our Ultimate Guide To The Maldives too!
