It is an accepted fact that when in the Maldives one of the 'must do' activities is to watch the sunset. While the scene is enchanting from anywhere it is superb from a dhoni, a traditional Maldivian sailing craft. Drifting in the calm sea watching the sun go down in a blaze of colour, lighting up the water around is certainly one of the most awe inspiring and beautiful experiences of a trip to the Maldives. Sunsets vary colours during the different seasons. During the monsoon sunsets are usually obliterated by thunderstorms but when the sunsets are visible they have a somber tint and are not as spectacular as the ones during the hotter months of the year.
These display myriad tints. The sun, a big molten golden orb surrounded by reds and oranges and sometime violet sinks slowly below the horizon while the sky around it merges into the deepening black of the night. All of this is reflected in the calm water around making the whole area glow and the sky and the ocean appear to merge for an instant. The best thing is the stunning scene is available for viewing without any obstruction. The show lasts for about two hours.
Taking a dhoni, out to sea to view the spectacle in the open water is everyone's idea of one of the best ways to spend a romantic evening. Having a dhoni all to one's self is even better. Sipping a glass of a favourite beverage and indulging in delectable finger foods fussed over by an attentive crew, is definitely a luxurious way to view nature's show. Dolphin and bird sightings are an added bonus. The evenings are also one of the best times of the day in the Maldives as the temperature and humidity drop a couple of degrees and a light breeze makes the air cooler. Outlines of objects become fuzzy in the dim light and the scene has an ethereal quality. This part of the day is not only a time of extraordinary beauty but a time for relaxation and winding down.
