The Maldives are formed by 26 natural coral atolls that are located in the Indian Ocean. The fantastic diving spots teeming with marine life, the white sand beaches and clear blue waters have made the atolls of the Maldives one of the most popular tropical holiday destinations in the world.
The atolls extend over an area of approximately 750 km, and are made up of 1,192 coral islands, of which only 200 are inhabited. Some islands are dedicated to industry and agriculture, while a select few on each of the atolls are home to some of the most impressive resorts. The natural landscape of the Maldives, above and below the water, contribute mightily to the wonderful experience visitors have when they visit the resorts on the islands.
