Instagram is filled with amazing images of the Maldives, luxurious resort islands, white sandy beaches, aqua marine water, over water villas and colorful tropical marine life. Pretty much every view is worthy of a highlight on your social media feed!

However, you don’t need to spend a fortune to WOW your followers and make your friends back home envious! Travel local, explore local and discover local. You are still assured of experiencing the best of our island paradise.

We have selected our top 10 Instagram moments for your 2022 Maldives holiday. All of these images were taken by guides or guests of Secret Paradise travelling with us on a Secret Paradise tour.


Whether you are in or out of the water, Vaavu’s famous shipwreck is a fun encounter. For sure it makes the perfect Instagram image but it also allows you to discover how marine life can takeover a location in a short period of time.

Ocean swings are getting full on attention on social media around the world. We think there is nothing better than gently swinging to the rhythm of the sea breeze while watching the sun slowly setting in a blaze of colour.

Many of our tours include local islands where you can swing in the sea breeze including at Gulhi on our South Male Island Hopping Tour.


What to say about this majestic gentle giant of the ocean. So often a first time encounter can leave guests speechless.
