The Sunny Side of Life

Showcasing the well-known destinations of Maldives in listicle format

Maldives is a dream destination for couples, singles, and family as well. I mean, it's such a beautiful destination surrounded by fine urban design and nature's beauty. Streets bombarded by tourists worldwide and courteous hospitality from locals, it is truly a place where you can just let yourself soak into leisure. Not to mention, Maldives is much more than just beaches and pretty resorts. 

Male Island - 

Apart from being the capital city, Male Island has earned various other titles as well. Like how, it is one of the smallest and lowest capital cities in the world. Your local guide will tell you so many stories about history that you won't even realize how your day has passed. And it's all very fascinating stuff. Be it them taking pride in the 98% literacy rate, the belief behind the Islamic faith, or the story of how 8 brave military servicemen died in the protection of their country from a terrorist attack in 1988. The Locals’ spirited eyes and dramatic gestures indeed keep you entertained.

Tsunami Monument - 

One-stop in the city is A building consisting of a small cylinder with encircling spheres. The magnificent structure is hauntingly beautiful. It is constructed in remembrance of the lives lost in the devastating Tsunami in 2004. No matter how sunny the weather is or how shiny this structure looks, it surely leaves a hollow in your chest remembering the lost lives. 

Hulhumale Island- 

The pretty neighborhood to the Male city is a charming and gorgeous place that will make you giddy with happiness. Hulhumale island will keep you entertained all the time. You can take a stroll around the pristine beach and go shopping at colorful markets with breathtaking surroundings. It always helps that the place is very budget-friendly.

Utheemu - Northernmost of all the Maldivian island chains. 

It was once the home of the revered Sultan Mohamed Thakurufaanu. You will definitely find sparkling aqua, coconut trees, and delicious food like every other island. Still, walking through the island, you can see a bit of the real Maldivian life.


When you stroll through the winding walkways of Feyadhoo, you will be given a warm welcome by the locals by offering sample seafood curries. The tight-knit housing blocks and leafy streets were once an airbase to British people. The history behind it will surely spike up curiosity, seeing how feyadhoo has once again established Maldivian life. 

Banana Reef

If you are in the Maldives, Banana reef is hard to miss. Getting so close to the life that is under the sparkly water is overwhelming at best. Discovering a new life is always very consuming for us humans, even if it is a leisure activity. Multi-colored corals, seaweed clad sandbanks, and numerous different species. Seeing life in so many shapes and forms, just floating around you, will leave you in awe!

They say people go to the Maldives for nothing, but every island here has so many activities on offer. Apart from your usual water sports or soaking in the jacuzzi at some luxury resort, Maldives will help you rediscover life itself!
