The Big Maldives Book: Intro

In the spring of 2023, we decided on a sabbatical in coming October. We went on a two-month-long journey with our two little sons, almost 6 and 2.5 years old. We started in Tenerife, repacked at home, and continued to the Maldives. 

Arriving in the Maldives without expectations, we fell head over heels for the country. The true, authentic Maldives is not about resorts with all-inclusive packages; it’s about local islands. My golden formula: affordable accommodation, crystal-clear waters, and gorgeous, less crowded islands. And I found it all here. The locals are friendly and treat their guests with utmost respect and honesty. Dive in!
