Considering sailing in Maldives, with its almost 1200 small coral islands, the tropical nation of Maldives is all about beaches and sunshine. The islands are famous for their white sands, framed by green palm trees and surrounded by the bluest and clearest water you can imagine.
Sailing in the Maldives is undoubtedly the best way to explore the magnificent sandy beaches, charming fishing villages and fancy resorts. Due to an abundance of tropical fish thriving around the reefs in the warm Indian Ocean water, the Maldives are also one of the world's most attractive diving and snorkeling destinations.
The Hulhumale Lagoon, where our base is located, is an excellent starting point of your Maldives sailing adventure. In case you choose the Alif Atoll route on your Maldives yacht charter, you will enjoy a series of colorful snorkeling sites such as the Banana Reef, Genburugau or Maamigili. The latter is famous for whale sharks, and if you're lucky, you might even get a chance to swim with them! Your Maldives yacht charter will also take you around wonderful inhabited and uninhabited islands. Rasdhoo, for example, is an island where you can feel the vibe of the local life and relax at one of the many coffee shops. Enboodhoo, on the other hand, is an uninhabited island, offering a touch of unspoilt nature.
The Vaavu Atoll itinerary has just as exciting opportunities in store - snorkeling around the island of Vashugiri, exploring the peaceful local village of Keyodhoo or relaxing at the gorgeous sandy beaches of the Island of Bodumohora... The rule of the thumb is – Whichever sailing route in the Maldives you choose, it is surely the right choice!
The Maldives, a tropical paradise, enjoys a warm climate all year round, making it ideal for sailing. Thanks to the fact that this insular country is located just norths of the Equator, the two monsoons that determine the rainfall and wind direction are quite mild. The southwest monsoon, or the rainy season, brings some rain and wind from May to October and the northeast monsoon, the dry season, extends from November to April, and it brings very little wind or rainfall. Air temperatures range from 26-31 degrees Celsius all year round while the ocean temperature is constantly between 28 and 29 degrees.
