The Maldive Victory sunk in 1981 after hitting a reef. Now, the dive site attracts scuba aficionados thanks to its particularly challenging currents and the rich sea life (picture thriving coral and colorful fish) that has made the wreck a sight to behold.

The Maldive Victory rests below the waves on the Hulhule House Reef, which stretches between Male' and Hulhule. Experts say this site is gorgeous year-round. And be sure to take one of those experts with you, since currents here can be dangerous. Scuba diving excursions range in price, depending on the necessary level of instruction, the amount of rental equipment and transportation to and from the dive site. Be sure to check with your resort concierge for more details and to help make arrangements for you.

#1 Maldives Beaches

Many vacationers head to the Maldives solely to relax on the beach – and for good reason. The sugar white sand and striking blue water make for the perfect beach vacation backdrop. Most island resorts offer their own private stretches of sand, complete with lounge chairs and umbrellas. Some resorts that boast notably beautiful beaches include: the St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort, aaaVeee resort, COMO Cocoa Island, Fihalhohi Island Resort and Angsana Ihuru. Past visitors said the beach scenes in the Maldives are hard to describe, saying their beauty is unparalleled. There are public beaches on a handful of Maldivian islands, though visitors must be covered as wearing revealing clothing is illegal. A very few "bikini beaches" (on Rasdhoo and Maafushi) allow sun-seekers to wear typical bathing suits. However, travelers recommend sticking to the beaches on or near your island.
