Maldives Tourism

Strung out along the equator in the Indian Ocean are the 26 atolls that make up the tiny country of Maldives. Brilliant white sands, azure blue seas, tropical palms, sun and surf, the Maldives is an ideal destination to lie back, sip a drink and tan a delightful bronze.

Pamper yourself or rather let others pamper you as you sit back and relax in one of the luxurious resorts. If a holiday spells action for you, test the surf on your surfboard or dive in the waters to admire the exotic marine life or just simply hold her hand and walk on the soft white sand as the sun sets over the blue sea.

A perfect place for honeymoon! There is no other place as romantic as these Islands of Maldives- deep blue sky, brilliant white sands, sparkling sun kissed beaches, tropical palms and much more.

With over 1200 islets within the area of 300 square kilometres, Maldives has also been described as “The Necklace of Indian Ocean.”

The Maldives is the lowest country on the earth’s surface as it is just 4 feet 11 inches above sea level. More than 80 % of the Maldivian islands sit less than 3.2 feet above sea level.

There are over 2,000 species of fish and approximately 300 species are reef fish found in the waters surrounding Maldives. Seven species of reef fish in these waters have never been discovered elsewhere in the world.

Did you know that the Maldives was the first country in the world to hold an official presidential cabinet meeting underwater? The meeting was attended by the president and vice president and a declaration on global climate change was signed.
