Cruise at the Maldives

Maldives is the perfect destination for the newlyweds who are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city life. It is a sovereign island country and archipelago in the Indian Ocean and the number one honeymoon destination. The island is breathtakingly beautiful, so much so that it almost doesn’t seem real. You will find brilliant white sand, glistening lagoons and vibrant coral reefs.

The best season to visit Maldives is a little tricky and entirely depends on whether you are an outdoor person or not. Basically, since it is an island the weather is tropical all year around there are two monsoon seasons from July to August due to southwest monsoon and from November to March due to northeast monsoons. So if you want to get a nice tan or just relax on the beach then you should definitely visit in the summers. However the weather is hot and humid in summers. In winters however, you can enjoy pleasant, sunny weather and cool ambiance and believe it or not Christmas is the busiest time for the Island!The best time for divers and snorkel-lovers is between May and November because the skies are clear and so are the waters.

      It depends on where are you traveling from. For me it might cost between 300$ to 1500$. It's all about timing and airlines.
