That claim seems to be truly justifying when one sights these tropical islands. The 2000 odd islands of Maldives (of which only about 200 are inhibited!) encompasses innumerable coastline – beaches that illustrate a perfect natural blend of swaying palm trees, white powder-like sand bed, plus, lagoons of varying blue shades.

One of the very rare locations where mother nature is in its purest form, these pristine seashores will easily find place among the list of best beach destinations around the world.

Maldives’ unscathed natural environment makes its sea-waters a virtual heaven of ecosystems. The island boasts a large variety of colorful coral reefs that harbors hundreds of different marine species.

The peculiar geography and sparse population also makes way for another spectacular entertainment, that’s perhaps unrivaled in anywhere else – the tropical island resorts !

These are tourist resorts, typical Maldives special, consisting of an exclusive hotel on its own island with population based on tourists and staff only – absolutely no locals! Any solitude seekers couldn’t ask for more.

Maldives’ beaches are all-round entertainers. Their secluded serenity and soothing atmosphere attracts honeymooners and families, while the clear waters & mind-blowing underwater sceneries draws diving enthusiasts.

These beaches are much sought after by vacationers and watersports (scuba, skiing, snorkeling, windsurfing…) persons alike.
