Malé airport
Day 1

Malé

One of the top honeymoon destinations in the world, the Maldives are a must-see destination for those who like barefoot luxury. Spanning more than 107,500 square kilometres (41,500 square miles) of the Indian Ocean, the Maldives offers a multitude of rich cruising grounds for superyachts among its islands, atolls and reefs.

Day 1: Malé

Arriving by plane is quite an experience, the single runway darts out into the sea and is one of the most scenic landings in the world. You can opt to take a boat to the capital, Malé where you’ll meet your yacht in the Port. After refreshing yourselves, head back to town by tender, where you’ll vie for dock-space with the locals — this island nation is reliant on boats to get around. The clean, well-built town has some buildings of historic interest such as the old Mosque, built in 1656. The fish market is a bustling place — little wonder when around a quarter of the islanders earn a living as fishermen. But there are no women here — the men, trade, buy and take home the fish for the women to cook.
