Maldives
Seafood is naturally what shines in Maldivian cuisine. Fresh tuna, snapper, and lobster may be hauled in on an average day's catch. Once cooked, these fruits of the sea are served on platters heaped with traditional rice and coconut. Savvy resorts cater to every palate, however, offering everything from pizza and ice cream to caviar and duck confit. And while island governments ban liquor consumption by residents, guests needn't worry about their wine pairings: Resorts have special license to serve alcohol, so you can enjoy fine wines, sparkling champagnes, and freshly shaken martinis.
