Welcome to The Maldives
Think white sandy beaches and sparkling tropical lagoons fringed with coconut palms. The Maldives is an archipelago which sits in the indian ocean, where local culture thrives and the snorkelling is spectacular. Its pristine oceans are one of the countries proudest and most beautiful assets. Azure-blue, crystal clear water and coral reefs teeming with fish visible just below the surface of the water are trademarks of the nation. It is undeniably tempting to plunge into the ocean on a daily basis.
Joining Travel Teacher in this tropical nation will take you on a journey beyond the 5 star resorts to the breathtakingly remote islands of The Maldives. The locals are extremely friendly and provide a warm welcome to all visitors. They are grateful for the work that volunteers provide and have no trepidation in including them in their daily activities.
Such a unique experience. You meet such amazing people and see the purest side of the world.
Activities and other information
Your indulgence with a cultural encounter on an inhabited island will make your trip here all the more enriching. Local travel will allow you to discover the true essence of this destination. Travelling local with us in The Maldives means you are destined to access many places most tourists will simply not get to see. You will gain a greater understanding of the need to preserve local culture as well as encouraging measures to protect the natural environment.
What better way to experience this than to see the country through the eyes of a local and experience daily life by travelling by public ferry and staying on a locally inhabited island. Volunteers can get an authentic feel for the Maldivian life here and it is certainly not an opportunity to pass up!
Every second spent here is a pinch-me moment.
- Go snorkeling and discover an underwater world of tropical fish, manta rays, reef sharks, turtles or even dolphins if you are lucky.
- Experience night fishing with the local community, starting with a sunset boat trip and finishing under the starry skies.
- Cook your own catch at the night beach barbecues.
- Get dropped off at one of the uninhabited islands for a day of pure relaxation.
- Head out on some of the cultural visit tours included in your expedition.
