Turtles, dolphins and a shock cyclone, my Maldives holiday diary

If you’re planning a Maldives holiday 2020 then I would recommend staying in more than one resort.

My Maldives holiday was planned over nine days, with an itinerary at Coco Plam Dhuni Kolhu, Coco Bodu Hith and The Residence including snorkeling with a marine biologist, a sunset dolphin cruise, paddle boarding, jet skiing and spa treatments.
