Part of the holiday experience in going to a new and exotic destination such as the Maldives is to try its cuisine. This does not have to be relegated to its local dishes alone however, because yummy local fruits also provide a rather delectable insight into gastronomical goodness! The local market in the capital Male is one of the best places to sample some of the country’s fruits, though before heading here make sure you find suitable accommodation at one of the Maldives spa resorts such as Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas. Unique amongst Maldives resorts for offering one of a kind underwater dining, this island getaway lets you savour authentic local cuisine as well.

Make sure to plan a trip to Male where one can visit the local market where you will find a wide array of fresh fruit brought from the islands. Yellow bananas are a common sight here and are definitely worth sampling when at the market. The Maldivian mango or “Dhivehi Anbu” features its own unique taste, while “Dhivehi Atha” which is a kind of sugar apple is also worth sampling though this fruit is not as easy to find as the others. Watermelon, passion fruit, pomegranate and pineapple are among the other local fruits that let you enjoy the country’s fruity flavours.
