Maldives: why not?!?
What could be more tranquil than a beach surrounded entirely by crystal clear, blue water? Maldives, an island cluster consisting of thousands of tropical isles, is known for its premier diving, coral reefs and bespoke resorts. The water is so clear in fact, that swimmers can see any of the 1.000 species of fish from over 50 mt away. The ideal time to visit is during the dry season from November to April when average temperatures stay between 25-28 degrees Celsius. With nothing but the vast Indian Ocean in the distance, it is the perfect locale for a relaxing, exotic getaway.
The people of Maldives have fought for freedom from the Dutch, British and even leaders they elected themselves. Through all of this, tourism remains Maldives’ largest industry. Travel in Maldives often includes time relaxing on the local beaches. These tropical islands have plenty of sunshine and high temperatures year round, and have islands dedicated strictly to tourists traveling to Maldives. Whether you long for pampered nights in a 5-star resort or fish-filled days some 24 mt underwater, your tropical wishes are sure to come true on one of the 87 resort islands of the Maldives. Straddling the equator, the 1.102 islands that make up the Maldives form 26 atolls, or rings, of coral scattered over an area of land 820 km long and 120 km wide. The air of tranquility enveloping the archipelago makes the Maldives the ideal place to escape from the real world to a palm-fringed haze.

However, what immediately comes to mind when many of us think of an atoll is a desolate, circular array of coral reefs with white, sandy islands populated by a few lonely, swaying palm trees and perhaps a castaway or two. And watching the video by peterambertravel, it’s true!. Joking apart, don’t miss the chance to enjoy a real Maldivian experience beyond its glitzy resorts and pristine beaches precisely like it is showed on this video.
