The Maldive Island are located on top of a vast underwater mountain range, a string of idyllic islands, encircled by the translucent, ever-changing waters of the Indian Ocean. The complex and vibrant coral atolls truly live up to their hype – with the sheer beauty of the coral reef, the cyan-blue waters, skyline of coconut palm trees, whiter-than-white sand beaches, isolation, and inviting people all contribute to this tropical oasis.
Dive into the rich Maldivian waters, discovering overhangs, oddly-shaped pinnacles, underwater caves, and gardens of coral. Spot graceful turtles, whale sharks, reef manta rays, and even the colossal whale. Snorkel the lagoons among shoals of colourful fish inhabiting the underwater coral-caverns. For those more comfortable above water, embark on a catamaran sailing trip, watch whales breach and dolphins frisk, or indulge in the island’s vibrant nightlife.
Malé is the throbbing heart of the Maldives. Extraordinary and densely crowded, it’s a stark contrast to the laid-back atmosphere found elsewhere in the country. The Malé Hukuru Miskiiy’s coral stone structure dates back to 1656, making it the oldest mosque in the country. Carved with Quranic script and intricate decorations, it commemorates the introduction of Islam to the Maldives.
