The Baa Atoll is a great starting point. White beaches, coconut palms and miles of offshore reefs are all present and correct. As is the norm in the Maldives, there’s usually one hotel per tiny island, and it’ll usually star the iconic over-water suites. Best of all, it’s a protected UNESCO Biosphere Reserve – and a world-class scuba diving territory.
The capital city, Malé, is the place for a shot of Maldivian culture. The ornate Malé Friday Mosque and National Museum make themselves at home between the colourful high-rises.
