Maldives named amongst world’s best islands
Maldives has been named amongst the best islands in the world.
On Travel+Leisure magazine’s ‘Best 15 Islands in the World’ list, the Maldives is ranked at the fifth place with a score of 90.48. The Maldives trails behind the Greek island of Milos, Indonesian island of Bali, Pilipino island of Palawi and Sri Lanka with a difference of just a few points.
The Maldives also secured the fourth spot in the list of ‘Top 10 Islands in Asia’ with a score of 90.48.
Every year for its World’s Best Awards survey, Travel + Leisure asks readers to weigh in on travel experiences around the globe — to share their opinions on the top cities, islands, cruise ships, spas, airlines, and more. Readers rated islands according to their activities and sights, natural attractions and beaches, food, friendliness, and overall value.
A fan of Maldives that responded to the survey gushed over “crystal water with white-sand beaches and very, very friendly locals.”
The World’s Best is a travel awards programme run by Travel + Leisure and based on an annual reader survey. The 2019 survey was open at tlworldsbest.com from November 6, 2018 to March 4, 2019.
