A snorkeling tour of reefs with marine biologists. Swimming in balmy, turquoise lagoons. Getting a massage at an underwater spa… On a tailor-made holiday to the Maldives with Audley, you’ll see the highlights — and much more — your way. We’ll design your ideal trip with you, paying close attention to your interests, your travel style and your budget. Our Maldives specialists know the islands inside out and can lead you to experiences you won’t find in a guidebook.

Enjoy traditional Bodu Beru folk music and dancing. Eat breakfast on a stark white sandbar, in the midst of calm, vibrant blue waters. Dine on board a luxury dhoni. Help with coral conservation. Relax in an infinity pool. Try water-skiing, wakeboarding, windsurfing or parasailing in the year-round warm waters. Snorkel with a chance to see sea turtles, sharks and manta rays. Recover your inner calm with yoga sessions in a pavilion surrounded by turquoise waters.

Glimmering waters. Swaying palm trees. Endless opportunities to observe dolphins, sharks and rays. What excites you? Travel at your own pace, in your own style, with the confidence that we’ll show you the best options, wherever you go.
