About Maldives

About Maldives

Sun, sand and sea, a thousand 'Robinson Crusoe' islands, massive lagoons with different depths and infinite shades of blue and turquoise, dazzling underwater coral gardens; a perfect natural combination for the ideal tropical holiday destination. However there is more to the Maldives than just that.

The Country

Specks of emerald green enveloped by dazzling turquoise waters like scattered beads in the ocean white powdery beaches, tall palms lean on towards the sea, crystalling white sands giving way to crystal clear waters, shades of turquoise blend flawlessly with deeper hue of blue; pristine coral reefs and some of the most incredible underwater life on our planet.

Rising from the deep blue of the vast expanse of the Indian Ocean are more than a thousand islands and thousands more reefs that form the Maldives.
