Whichever destination you decide to book in the Indian Ocean, you can guarantee that you will enjoy a sublime stay in paradise. Sun lovers from all over the world make the journey to the Maldives to soak up some of the fantastic sunshine on the clean and wide beaches. With over a thousand islands scattered across the Indian Ocean, it’s not difficult to see why this destination is one of the most popular for sun-seekers. When you visit the Maldives, you will get a true sense of island hospitality, both from the friendly locals and hotel staff at your resort.
A beach stay in the Maldives is the perfect holiday for anyone looking for a week to lay back and relax on clean white sands. With clear ocean waters, this is the ideal spot to dive in and enjoy a swim, with paddle boats and windsurfing activities being just a couple of ways to explore the glittering waters here. Citrus Holidays will book you into the four-star resort of Smartline Eriyadu, an intimate hotel that is built in traditional Maldivian style, giving you a true island feel from the moment you wake up. With welcoming staff, you will feel relaxed from the first moment; be sure to take advantage of the spa and wellness centre and outdoor swimming pool.
Also, our Sri Lanka and Maldives Beach package offers everything from canoeing to cooking demonstrations, allowing you to absorb the culture and enjoy exhilarating experiences, too. Take in the beautiful countryside on the local heritage train journey to Nuwara Eliya, after you’ve taken part in a cultural dance in Kandy. During your nine-night stay, Citrus Holidays will arrange accommodation for you in four different hotels, which you will stay in as you travel across these beautiful islands. This will give you the opportunity to unwind and recharge after a fun-filled day. Each hotel is welcoming and offers fabulous views of the area, some of which are located right by the ocean.
Mauritius is another immensely popular holiday destination in the Indian Ocean. With vast landscapes of sea and sand, you will be able to relax in total tropical tranquillity. Aside from the gorgeous beaches, you can also enjoy a range of cultural delights, particularly the Maheswarnath Hindu Temple and the Balaclava Ruins by Turtle Bay.
The island provides endless ways to relax, but if you’re after something adventurous then you won’t be left wanting. The surrounding waters are a playground for kitesurfing, speed boating and water skiing. The intense blue waters are perfect for snorkelling and scuba diving amongst the abundant marine life and coral reef. The fun continues on dry land, where you can enjoy rock climbing, canyoning or a tour of the Moka mountains by quad bike, 4x4 or on horseback.
The Maldives is comprised of roughly one thousand islands, all of which are surrounded by clear azure seas, which are ideal for water sports and swimmers thanks to the warm temperatures of the water. There’s more to a holiday in the Maldives than just catching some rays, though; each of these islands are a hotspot for culture, cuisine and history. During your time here, there will be ample opportunity to visit World Heritage Sites, national parks and sample a wide variety of exquisite cuisine. The Maldives is even home to five of the world’s seven species of sea turtles and with the diving season lasting all year round, there are plenty of chances to spot an array of sea creatures. The South Malé Atoll is also home to many spectacular dive sites including caves and wrecks.
