A Tropical Island Paradise

Maldives is located on the equator an hour and a half’s flight southwest of Sri Lanka and it is made up of 1190 coral islands, forming an archipelago of 26 major atolls. Faru, ring-like coral formations enclosing an azure blue lagoon surrounded by dazzling white talc sand, form the atolls and give the Maldives its unique paradise-like appearance – a string of pearls scattered over the deep blue Indian Ocean.

Maldives is famed for its rare underwater beauty, with the bluest of waters teeming with astonishing soft corals and fish sparkling in a profusion of psychedelic colours around the stunning reefs. With incredible underwater visibility, warm ocean temperatures throughout the year, and some of the best dive sites, sun-drenched beaches and spa resorts in the world, Maldives offers you a truly unrivalled tropical island experience.
