Think the Maldives is just a honeymoon spot for newly-wed couples and that it won’t be ideal for remote workers? Think again. While this tropical country may be considered a romantic destination, it can also be a great digital nomad base if you’ve always wanted to live and work on an island with a relaxed and chill ambiance with the ocean as your backdrop.
The Maldives is an independent island situated in the north-central part of the Indian Ocean. It’s made up of a group of islands and atolls and the capital is called Male. Out of the 1,200 atolls and islands, only 200 are inhabited. This is primarily due to the Maldives having the smallest islands in the world. In fact, only about 392,473 people are living in the Maldives as of 2018.
Diving, snorkeling, dolphin spotting, and island hopping are just some of the things you can do while in this tropical paradise, when you are not focused on work.
Since the country is mainly famous for being an island getaway, the coliving scene isn’t thriving here but it’s starting to gain traction. There’s nothing more relaxing than having a beach right at your front door!
The Maldives is also quite accessible because all nationalities are allowed to enter without a tourist visa. Numerous countries also have direct flights to its capital. There has never been a better time to book a coliving space on this stunning island.
