It's time to book your flight to the Maldives. The Maldives is the smallest country in Asia; one made up of hundreds of tiny islands in the Indian Ocean. This is a country where over one hundred of these magical islands maintain resorts and luxury hotels along the virtually undistrubed white sand beaches. Numerous marine ecosystems and vast tracks of delicate and colourful coral reef make the Maldives one of the most magnificent places in the world for snorkelling and scuba diving.

Calling the Maldives a tropical island paradise is a compliment, but there is much more to this island nation. The Maldives is a holiday destination for your bucket list. The island’s pristine powder-white beaches and crystal clear waters are inviting for any traveller. Imagine snorkelling next to your luxurious overwater bungalow.

The Maldives is the perfect choice for honeymoons, birthday holidays, family holidays or single travellers. Whatever your reason, this is a superb destination for switching off from the hustle and bustle and everyday life stress. You will feel the calmness from the moment you arrive at the resort. You could chill on the beach or snorkel next to your villa and explore the beautiful sea life to start. Perhaps you would also try your hand at fun water sports like water skiing, surfing, kayaking and paddle boating?

The islands are quiet and relaxed and most contain just a single resort meaning the activities are mostly geared around the one property. This is a destination where visitors come to relax, enjoy the beach and tropical climate. While there’s isn’t much in the way of night life and what the Maldives lacks in shopping or night clubs, is more than made up for in its natural beauty, gorgeous white sand beaches, thrilling water sports and delicate underwater ecosystems.
