Did you know…?
Maldives is an archipelago of 1,192 coral islands grouped into 26 natural coral atolls in the Indian Ocean. They lie south west of India and west of Sri Lanka. None of the coral islands measure more than 1.8 metres above sea level.
Only 192 islands are inhabited by the 300,000 inhabitants and more than 100 have been developed for the tourist market; the rest of the islands remain virgin islands.
One of the most remarkable aspects of Maldives is the amazing diversity of sea life found in the archipelago. There is a wide range of corals and over 2,000 species of fish, ranging from colourful reef fish to reef sharks, moray eels and a wide variety of rays: the manta ray, stingray and eagle ray. The Maldivian waters are also home to the whale shark.
