Backpacking in the Maldives!

Backpacking Experience in Maldives

Backpacking is a fantastic way to explore the light and easy way. It allows you to hop on and off from one place to another, meet new people and experience things you might not be able to otherwise. It’s time to embark on a new adventure and go backpacking in the Maldives.

It will leave you with unforgettable memories, filled with magical marine life. 

Backpacking in Maldives, a unique experience

There’s nothing like waking up one morning, packing your backpack, and run away on a new adventure. With everything well prepared and organized, you head out to experience something different and learn more about the world around you.

Discovering new countries, learning about other cultures, experiencing their festivities, tasting their food… all of these things form the fundamental pillar that helps us turn a simple trip into an unforgettable, special, and unique one.

Amongst the many routes we can choose from, we encourage backpacking in the Maldives – a dreamlike place, a paradise distinctive of others places.

Despite the idea that the Maldives is only full of resorts and is therefore an expensive destination, it is more then feasible to keep our budget to the minimum. 

The Maldives is a country located in the Indian Ocean, consisting of 26 atolls with over 1000 islands that form a ring. This gives it a very original appearance and allows it to offer visitors a paradisiacal, tropical environment with truly surprising marine life.

Male vs. local islands

The capital, Malé, is very different from the rest of the Maldives. It’s a place with crowded streets, constant traffic, and people bustling around. However, we can find all kinds of shops and businesses here. But we also have many other quiet and idyllic islands nearby, such as Rasdhoo, located 60 km from the capital, where we can find new places to enjoy a peaceful vacation and explore every corner without any stress.

It is easy to travel to these places quickly by speedboat, and return to Malé to visit other destinations if we want to explore other islands.

Rasdhoo is a gorgeous small local island, where the most recommend activity (as for the rest of the Maldives) is scuba diving. This gives backpackers a chance to learn more about the marine life and the peculiarities of an unknown natural world.

Diving in these waters is a real pleasure, with an enviable warm climate making it possible to dive all year around. 

Enjoy a fantastic and economical trip

There are some international destinations that we often overlook precisely because we think that as a backpacker we won’t be able to afford such a trip.

Maldives is precisely one of those destinations, as we mostly see adverts showing luxurious resorts, but the truth is that if you know how to really organise that trip and search for all options, it is cheaper than we think. 

It is for this reason that at Family Divers we offer for €800 a FULL WEEK of unparalleled fun and learning, seven days of mind-blowing experiences, including diving and accommodation, leaving the monotony behind and break away from the accumulated stress, and at a price well below the majority of resorts that offer similar services for over 1000€ per day…

Maldives invites you to live an unforgettable adventure.

The best thing about the Maldives is that they offer you a variety of adventures that are unachievable in most parts of the world, meaning you’ll need a certain amount of time to really experiences it all. 

Obviously, it’s impossible to travel to all 1000 islands, but just by setting foot on one of them, we discover an entire new culture by interacting with the locals, leaving our old everyday lives behind to put ourselves in the shoes of an islander. 

Here you can discover the best cuisine, find cafés, plenty of places to rest, tourist and cultural attractions, beaches, restaurants.

You’ll also find ideal spots for the best pictures, grocery stores, souvenir shops, coffee shops, and beaches to relax and let the sun sink into your skin!
