The Maldives travel guide

Maldives holidays… what to expect

The island nation of the Maldives consists of a double chain of 26 atolls, or ring-shaped coral reefs, spread over roughly 90,000 square kilometres in the Indian Ocean. The word atoll comes from the language spoken in the Maldives, in which this special type of island is called an “atholhu.”

For visitors, the Maldives offers a balmy tropical climate, lagoons with warm azure water, colourful reefs teeming with diverse marine life and some of the world’s most beautiful, palm-fringed beaches. It also features many top-notch resorts.

The Maldives includes a large number of completely unspoilt, uninhabited islands, many of which can be visited by boat. Only 200 of the roughly 1,190 coral islands that make up the Maldives are inhabited, with another 80 reserved exclusively for tourist resorts.

The Maldivian coral reefs are home to over a thousand species of fish, along with sea turtles, whales, dolphins, manta rays, octopus and a huge array of other marine creatures, ranging in size from giant whale sharks to the smallest crustaceans and species of plankton. To see the country’s incredible underwater landscapes, you can dive with a qualified instructor or snorkel.

The Maldives is also unique in that it’s one of the world’s lowest countries, with an average elevation of just 1.5 metres above sea level.
