The Maldives is home to perhaps the best beaches in the world. The Republic of the Maldives is a sovereign nation positioned in the Indian Ocean. The Maldives, located on top of a vast underwater mountain range have around 1190 islands and sandbanks. With some of the best diving and snorkeling in the world, the clear waters of the Maldives are a magnet for anyone with an interest in marine life.
These incredible islands have finally started to open to independent travelers, meaning you no longer have to stay in resorts and remain separate from the local population, something that has kept backpackers away for decades.
Things to do in Maldives:
Slip on a snorkeling mask and fins and jump into the inviting aquamarine waters of the Indian Ocean or roam around 200 immensely beautiful inhabited islands dotting the Maldives.
