Best Way to Get Around:
The best way to get around the Maldives is to walk. Whichever resort you pick will be walkable. Island-hopping at leisure isn't the best option since the ferry network is not very extensive.
Best Places to Eat:
Cuisine in the Maldives relies heavily on the region's available ingredients, which means seafood, coconut and starches feature prominently in many dishes. Tuna, wahoo, and mahi-mahi are a few of the fish you can expect to find on menus in the Maldives. Keep in mind, because the Maldives is an Islamic nation, the population does not drink alcohol. However, you will be able to enjoy alcoholic beverages at most resorts.
