We’d bet with confidence that a Maldives vacation is on many watch lists. How couldn’t it be? If you compared the country to, say, haute joaillerie, Maldives would be like finding a bangle made of pure Kashmir sapphire embedded with clusters of trapiche emeralds and flawless diamonds. The majority Muslim (devoutly so, too) nation is roughly the size of Portugal, but is 99 percent water. Its remainder is speckled with nearly 1,200 lush, white-sand islands in an abstract double helix of north-south oriented atolls. (Atolls, fundamentally, are the tippy-top rings of long-dead, now-submerged volcanoes.) It is one of the world’s most rarefied geographic reserves. I wonder if Donald Trump and his climate change–denying team have ever been; the nation’s highest point above sea level is a scant 6 feet. They may change their minds.
It has also lately caught the fashion sphere’s attention: Recently, both super-stylist Giovanna Battaglia Engelbert and Louis Vuitton menswear designer Kim Jones have been spotted holidaying in the Maldives. (In Jones’s case, perhaps the jaunt was for a little rest and relaxation before this summer’s inevitably insane Louis Vuitton x Supreme drop.) Cara Delevingne also went this past December with her sister, Poppy. It should be noted, then, that a Maldives getaway isn’t just about lovers’ isolation and honeymooning. It’s very chill, for sure, but there are also plenty of chances for adventures and/or culturally immersive experiences. Here, then, is a rundown of our favorite activities that Maldives has to offer.
