An overview of the Maldives

The Maldives is made up of 1000 tiny islands, scattered across 26 atolls. Home to pristine beaches and turquoise lagoons, it is the lowest country in the world at only 1.5 metres above sea level. The atolls are composed of vibrant coral reefs and sand bars, with many of the resorts inhabiting their own private island. Visit Male for bustling street markets and culture, but don’t get caught out by the time difference between ‘Male time’ and ‘island time’.
