With Baby in The Maldives

The Maldives offer the perfect pampering beach scape for luxury holidays with babies.

 

Parents can indulge in first class relaxing spa therapies, enjoy romantic candle lit dinners, swim in the shallow waters of the lagoons or simply relax by the beaches.

 

Most luxury resorts are baby friendly with excellent childcare and offer plenty of amenities and babysitting services.

 

Many couples choose The Maldives because either they didn't have the chance to go there during their honeymoon or because they actually did and want to visit the archipelago again, this time with their child.

 

Ensure you have adequate sun protection for your baby, including sunscreen, hats and ideally sun protective clothing.

 

 

Maldives Destination Guide

The Maldives

Home to some of the world's most luxurious pampering getaways, The Maldives are a top destination for a quiet romantic holiday or for spending time with your new baby.

The Republic of Maldives is made of a double string of 1,190 coral islands to the southwest of Sri Lanka, stretching north to just south of the equator. This archipelago is 130 kilometres (81 miles) at its widest point and 820 kilometres (510 miles) in length, is also the flattest in the world, with the highest natural land less than 2.4 metres (8 feet) above sea level.

Grouped into 26 atolls – ring-shaped coral formations enclosing a lagoon, which provide a natural defence against wind and wave – the Maldives covers a total area of 859,000 square kilometres (331,661 square miles), yet only 1% of this is land.

With only 200 inhabited islands and an additional 98 islands developed exclusively as tourist resorts, tourism is the dominant support for the economy. Malé is the capital of the Republic of Maldives, an island 2 kilometres (1.2 miles) long and 1 kilometre (0.6 mile) wide.

Though built to the edge, Malé is clean and quaint, with markets, mosques and a maze of small streets with approximately 103,000 inhabitants.
