Destination Maldives: The Idyllic Islands

September 5, 2018
Maldives Islands

The Maldives has been awarded several international accolades over the years attesting to the sheer beauty of the Islands, as well as a hint at what makes the country one of the TOP travel destinations in the world. The awards include: Best Honeymoon Destination, Best Sea Destination, Best Travel Destination, World’s Leading Beach Destination, World’s Leading Dive Destination and Indian Ocean’s Best Spa Destination.

 

In the archipelago of coral islands, grouped into 26 atolls, the Maldives is purely surrounded by the pristine Indian Ocean. Each Island boasts its own charm and beauty, which saw the first tourist arrivals in 1972 completely engulfed with the idyllic paradise. The Tourism Industry of Maldives continued to grow at an exceptional rate with almost 800 establishments to date across all atolls catering to the increasing number of tourist arrivals each year.

The Islands

With sand as soft as powder, spanning around the Island, The Maldives calls for a “no shoes, no news” lifestyle. Travelers enjoy the barefoot luxuries afforded by Resorts that make up the entirety of each Island. Days are spent under swaying palm trees along the beach and the sound of the shore inviting you for a swim.

 

Another captivating reason why the Maldives is the perfect holiday destination is the crystal clear lagoon that surrounds each Island. The pristine shades of blue ranging from sparkling turquoise to royal blue are inviting enough for a swim and often times, to explore the colorful marine life that lies beneath.
