Maldives

Composed of 1,190 coral reef islands forming an archipelago of 26 atolls, the Maldives are acclaimed as a tropical paradise of pristine beaches and clear cobalt and turquoise waters. The country was formed from ancient volcanoes now hidden under the Indian Ocean. It is the planet’s lowest country, resting at just 4 feet 11 inches above sea level. They cover 35,000 square miles, making it one of the world’s most dispersed nations. It is the least populated (300,000 people) and smallest nation in Asia, though its size belies its prominence as a tourist destination. It is the perfect destination to tie off a multi-nation trip, particularly to Sri Lanka or India. Male is the international gateway to the Maldives via Hulhule Island, and the surrounding island resorts are accessed by private speedboat.

Once a Buddhist nation, the Maldives is now predominantly Muslim. Ever resilient, the friendly people of the Maldives have battled el Nino, the 2004 Asian Tsunami and the uncertainly of climate change. Nonetheless, this singular country features some of the best sand, sun and surf to be found anywhere, with world-class diving and ultra-luxurious resorts.
