Sun, sand and sea, massive lagoons with different depths and infinite shades of blue and turquoise, dazzling underwater coral gardens a perfect natural combination for the ideal tropical holiday destination. However there is more to the Maldives than just that.

What to see

Four degrees north of the equator, the Maldivian archipelago of 1,190 islands stretches ribbon-like across the deep blue seas of the India Ocean. These tropical sandy hideaways offer visitors pure relaxation in exquisitely beautiful surroundings. Underwater, the spectacle is perhaps even more stunning with over 900 species of exotic fish inhabiting the crystal clear waters and coral reefs.
