It’s so wonderful to be back in the Maldives and Baros really delivers on high expectations.
It’s hard to describe the attraction with those tiny Maldivian islands. It’s a combination of the lovely under water world surrounding them and the peacefulness in the shade of a palm tree.
And the corals with their colourful fishes. In our family, we only tan on the back, due to all this snorkelling.
And one absolutely has to eat fresh Yellow Fin Tuna, from the oceans outside. Pls note not the protected specie.
Christmas and new years eve is the most expensive time of the year. February-March are very “weather safe” months and the period when I have visited most of the times.
It’s always a good idea to look at the resorts (islands) own web sites for offers and deals, if not via a professional travel agency who really knows the Maldives.
I do, having visited +45 islands, including some local ones with guest houses.
Half board is normally a good option. On Baros, it’s excellent and a Maldivian-Asian la carte (I appreciate that it’s not a buffet).
Always make sure that the island has it’s own house reef, if you love snorkelling.
