As the Maldives is home to one of the world's most beautiful marine life the perfect way to witness this beauty is to plunge into the warm unspoiled blue waters. Dive sites in the Maldives are widely scattered. While resort island based guests only have access to a limited number of good diving spots: a far greater number can be reached on a liveaboards and this is unquestionably the best way to see the magnificent underwater of the Maldives.

 

Maldives have to offer: Mantas and other rays, Sharks, schools of trigger fish, moray eels and napoleon wrasse, Lobsters, multi-hued underwater landscapes and a host of marine creatures. If you are lucky enough you may get to swim along with pilot whales or whale sharks - an experience beyond compare




 

The Maldives is an archipelago of 26 natural atolls consisting of 1,190 small islands covering an area of 859,000 sq km in the Indian Ocean. The islands which are 80-120 km wide stretch 860 km from latitude 7񴔵5擭 to 04224擲, and lie between longitude 723319擡 to 734613擡. India and Sri Lanka are the country抯 nearest neighbors, lying some 600 km and 750 km north and north east of the Maldives, respectively.

Only 33 inhabited islands of the Maldives have a land area of more than 1 square kilometers while just 3 islands have an area larger than 3 square kilometers. 80 percent of islands have an elevation of less than one meter above sea level. The outer reef protects the islands from being washed away by the ocean waves.

The atolls

Although the Maldives is made up of 26 geographical atolls, these atolls are grouped to form 20 administrative regions, which also called as atolls.
While the geographical atolls have names such as Thiladhunmathi, Faadhihppolhu and Addu the administrative divisions are named after the letters of the Thaana alphabet, starting from the north. Hence North Thiladhunmathi, the northernmost administrative atoll is known as Haa Alif atoll. Haa, being the first letter of Thaana alphabet and Alif denoting that it is the northern section of Haa atoll. The southern atoll is Addu Atoll also known as Seenu Atoll

Inter-island transport
Transport between islands is generally by sea. Passengers and cargo ships operate between the atolls on a regular basis. There are four regional airports in the country. Flights operate regularly between Mal International Airport and the regional airports.
