The Maldives

The Island Kingdom

The Maldives Islands belong to the small and exclusive list of the Ultimate Place to see. Paradisiacal and unique in the World, they are an invitation to Dream and their breathtaking landscapes make this dream a reality.

Located astride the equator, south of India and west of Sri Lanka, their fascinating beauty resides in an unique geography exclusively made of natural atolls, sandy islands and reefs, scattered like gems and stretching along 823 km (511 miles).

The beauty of their pristine lagoons and sandy beaches along with their splendid aerial views make the Maldives an Absolute Paradise.

All islands are encircled by a lagoon blessed with crystal clear water. With their white sandy beaches, turquoise crystal blue seas and scenic coconut palms surrounding everywhere, the Maldives are portrayed by many as tropical paradise. Protected by a reef structure, the Maldives offer one of the most exclusive and spectacular underwater life and are known to be a Snorkeling Paradise.

Their name comes from the word "Maladiv", given by the first Indian merchants and literally means "Garland of Islands" in Sanskrit. The Maldivian refer to their country as "Dhivehi Raajje" which means in Dhivehi, "The Island Kingdom".
