In Maldives, it seems like the galloping waves and the warm of water of the sea come together to perform a duet that oozes with ecstatic melody. So crystal clear is the water that one can see the fishes scrambling along in the water at a distance of almost 50 meters! You can give free reign to the amateur diver in you as almost all the resorts and safari boats provide basic to advanced training using well-monitored diving facilities of a high standard.
Maldives is a country of not only natural exotica but also of daily luxuries. Gorgeous resorts with water bungalows and villas, underwater restaurants, and state of the art diving excursions all make it a luxurious holiday. While Maldives is one of the best beach and diving destinations in the world, it is necessary to point out that alcohol is illegal in Maldives. But do not fret; you can have it in the resort where you would be staying.
Shopping is one of the major activities that you would want to indulge in during your stay in Maldives. Maldives has some lovely products that you can take back home; hand-woven mats, pretty boxes with lacquer work, and dhoni models (traditional boat). You can flex your muscles and hone your skills at marine sports like surfing, scuba diving, snorkelling, night fishing, windsurfing and water skiing.
Maldives are a series of ancient coral reefs that grew up around the sides of towering prehistoric volcanoes. These immense structures have long since sunk into the ocean, leaving behind coral islands of incredible natural beauty, now themselves being colonised by travellers seeking unbridled pampering and romance.
This is life stripped down to simplicity – bright blue skies, all-year sunshine and fantastic diving and snorkelling in lagoons the temperature of bath water. The country embraces travellers from around the world allowing them the freedoms holiday makers require without compromising the islands’ deep Muslim faith one bit.
This is an exciting time to visit a country in developmental frenzy. The Maldives demands the attention of anyone looking for a uniquely indulgent break, breathtaking nature and sheer beauty that stays with you long after your tan has faded.
Superior are its beaches, so cobalt blue its waters and so warm its welcome that the country has become a byword for paradise whether it be for honeymooners, sun worshippers or divers.
