The Maldives may be known as a romantic destination, top of the list for honeymooners worldwide, but should you consider taking the whole family to this island paradise?

We want everyone to know that the Maldives is a great destination for couples and families alike! Travel blogger family Go Live Young stayed at Constance Halaveli in the Maldives and shared their highlights with us to inspire other families.

In collaboration with Go Live Young, we’ve put together our top six reasons to bring your family to experience all that the Maldives has to offer.

  1. Beautiful beaches

“The white sandy beaches of the Maldives are beautiful, just like talcum powder. And we had one right outside our villa!”

It’s hard to beat the beaches of the Maldives. Stunning white sand, swaying palm trees, calm turquoise waters… what’s not to like?

“It was the perfect beach holiday”

Kids can run around on the expansive sand to their hearts’ content, creating sandcastles and splashing in the warm water, while the grown-ups can relax with a good book in the shade if they prefer!

  1. Magical marine life

The Maldives is renowned for its extraordinary marine life, which can be explored and enjoyed from land or water.

“The snorkelling was a highlight, accessible to children as long as they are good swimmers. There’s a huge variety of reef fish, as well as black tip reef sharks and the odd turtle.”

How could you resist those warm turquoise waters?

If you and your children have dived before, then there are plenty of opportunities to explore some amazing dive sites. For those who aren’t ready to take the plunge, snorkelling is a great option to enjoy the stunning reefs.

And if your little ones aren’t quite up for snorkelling, they can still enjoy marine life from the safety of dry land!

Twice weekly at Constance Halaveli Maldives, kids can enjoy shark feeding from the jetty at the dive centre. They’ll see black tip reef sharks and huge jack fish!

  1. Family-friendly accommodation

Picking the right accommodation for your family is the key to making sure everyone has a great time. Our beach villas at Constance Halaveli are ideal for families with plenty of space inside and out, including a private pool!

“A beach buggy took us on a tour of the resort before depositing us at our villa, a two-storey beach villa right on the sand, with views of the crystal blue sea.”

Beach villas fit the whole family and give the kids direct access to play in the sand, as well as a large patio and garden area!

  1. Fantastic food

Finding options to please all the family can be a difficult task at times, but at Constance Halaveli there really is something for everyone.

“There are three restaurants at Constance Halaveli and we tried them all! The boys still talk about the nightly buffets.”

If you’re looking for a night of grown-up fine dining, head to Jing Restaurant on the jetty while the younger family members enjoy time at the Kids Club.

For a meal with the whole family, head to Jahaz Restaurant for an incredible array of flavours served buffet style, or to Meeru Restaurant for à la carte dining on the beach.

“Constance Halaveli has a Kids Club with a full programme of activities for both children and teens.”

From sushi and mocktail making to pool games and tennis lessons, the Kids Club at Constance Halaveli Maldives has plenty of activities to entertain the younger members of the family.

  1. Time together

“It’s away from life’s everyday distractions and long working hours that families really have the opportunity to spend uninterrupted time together.”
