Creep it Real This Halloween in the Maldives

Halloween in the Maldives
With dried palm fronds crafted into sinister huts inhabited by monsters, this island paradise can turn into hell on earth on Halloween.

Sparkling azure waters and pearly white sand are probably the last things that come to mind when you are thinking of Halloween. The call of the waves and the palm fronds dancing in the wind are not in the least bit intimidating. But don’t let the scenery fool you. Come nightfall, you will face the creatures that go bump in the night.

This island paradise transforms into hell on Earth once a year. The spooky decor makes the best of what the islands have to offer. Monsters with an air of mystery inhabit the sinister huts artfully crafted with dried palm fronds.

Of course, it does not end with just the decor. Traditional boduberu music is customary during most festivities for its hyperactive beats. It is accompanied by ritualistic dances that start off slow. They then progress into frantic and wild movements. The dancers are often dressed as creatures from Maldivian folklore. ‘Baburu kudhin’, which translates to ‘dark-skinned children’, is a popular costume in traditional boduberu.

Refreshments are also subject to terrifying transformations. All culinary delights are curated to look and taste frightfully delightful. The themed drinks perfectly complement the night’s festivities.

Missing the more traditional activities? Little ones will enjoy trick or treating, carving pumpkins, and showing off the scary creations they make during arts and crafts. Dressing up is highly encouraged, so be sure to wear your most terrifying garb! Stand the chance to win a costume contest for exciting prizes and vouchers.

Haunted attractions are a quintessential part of the entire experience. Filled with the screams and howls of the undead, and vengeful ghosts reaching out to grab any who dare to come near. You may even be unlucky enough to cross paths with vengeful spirits called ‘handi’ or ‘fureytha’. Spending Halloween night in the Maldives is definitely not for the faint of heart.
