Is the Maldives safe for solo travelers?

There is no overt threat of violence or prevailing bad reputation in connection to this oceanic paradise. Neither men nor women traveling alone have anything to fear. On resort islands, technically no safety issues can occur as the whole island is private where only the guests and the staff stay. On inhabited local islands, the streets and beachfront are always crowded with people which helps develop a safe atmosphere.

Just as with any vacation destination, there are dangers to be aware of before you leave. Keeping your belongings close to you, your passport always on hand, and being mindful of Islamic laws of the land will keep you safe.

Things to do in the Maldives alone

Maldives for single travelers is anything but boring. You can do everything the couples are doing, except it costs less! Solo travel to the Maldives is the best time to try new things and concentrate on self-enrichment.

Taste the cuisine

Eating is definitely one activity that is very enjoyable alone. Only you and your senses are required to indulge in the authentic tastes of local dishes. Add even more meaning to your trip by learning how traditional dishes are prepared and the history behind them.

Island hopping

No matter which island you stay at, there are always hundreds of others to explore with incredible white sand and blue waters. Sign up for an island-hopping trip and enjoy some time being far away from civilization, stress, and everyday problems.

The underwater life in the Maldives is second to none. In the clear warm waters, you can have the opportunity of spotting various marine creatures from big ocean animals like whale sharks or manta rays to turtles and octopuses. However water activities are the safest when having a buddy, but snorkeling alone in the shallows from your resort’s beach shouldn’t be a problem at all.

Sightseeing on local islands

Sightseeing with a partner can be troublesome. You may not want to see the same things or spend as long exploring as your friend. Solo travel to the Maldives means you can spend as long as you want engaged in activities.

Maldives singles resorts

Staying at a resort that caters to singles makes everything easier. Fortunately, there are several resorts in a variety of price ranges.

Ufa Escape

A Maldives holiday for singles can be a lot of fun if you decide to stay in an inhabited island where there are always tons of programs available. Located at Dhigurah Island, it is the perfect place for self-care and deep introspection, but also for activities if you decide so. The huge, airy rooms open to private access of a picturesque beach of emerald waters and diamond sands. Enjoy music and fine food in the restaurants within walking distance through the wonderland of beautiful greenery and luscious flowers. The scenery under a patio umbrella as the sun goes down is an extra special treat.
