The Maldives consist of a myriad of little islands, about two hundred of which are inhabited, and these are engulfed into twenty-six natural atolls. They straddle the equator with the appearance of a garland of little gems haphazardly abandoned on the crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean. Each resort has a shallow yet brilliant blue lagoon and is surrounded by a coral reef. The islands themselves are blessed with relatively deserted beaches of the softest powder-white sand, with a backdrop of gently swaying palms. Below the ocean is a world apart, a truly amazing kaleidoscope of over nine hundred species of exotic fish inhabiting the crystal clear waters. The splendours of the underwater life include turtles, sharks, dolphins, whales, stingrays, moray eels and manta rays. If you are seeking the ultimate in exclusive island hideaways, then the Maldives are for you.
