The Maldives evoke dreams of leaning palm trees, calm turquoise seas, shallow lagoons, endless sandy beaches and magnificent beach hotels and resorts providing a paradise for water sports and diving. The islands’ main attractions lie beneath the surface of the warm waters that lap the beautiful beaches of the Maldives.

The Maldives resorts cover 200 of the 1250 islands.
