The Maldives

The Maldives are represented by a cluster of over 1200 islands deep within the Indian ocean. Of these islands 154 are resorts spread out over 26 atols.

 

Eleven and a half hours flight from the UK and a time difference of plus 4 hours, the Maldives is the ultimate in luxury for both couples and families .... yes families!!!

With BA running direct flights 4 times a week from Heathrow, November to May, the Maldives are quickly becoming a firm family fav.
