Who doesn’t like a day in the beach? Fine warm sand crunching under your feet with each step. The bright sun shining down on you without a cloud in sight. And of course, the crystal-clear blue waters that gently lap against the shore. Plus, if you’re lucky, the nearby coconut trees will net you a free snack to cool you off in the heat!
But not all trips to the beach need to be the same! In Kihaa Maldives, you’ll have the chance to not only live out your best moments on a private island in an UNESCO heritage site, but also have a chance to explore the grand blue world underneath the ocean and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to swim with some of the most majestic sea animals in the world: Manta rays!

It only takes a 20-minute domestic flight exchange from the Velana International Airport once you have touched down in the Maldives. After which, you will be taken one of the many villas complete with all the necessary luxury amenities to keep you and your travel partners fully satisfied.
A trip to the beach in the middle of the Indian Ocean doesn’t have to stop at lying in the sand and enjoying the cool ocean breeze and bright sun!
