This necklace of a thousand tropical islands is a paradise of coral reefs and white, sandy beaches, set in gloriously azure waters which stretch as far as the eye can see. Here you can indulge yourselves with the holiday of a lifetime.
The land of The Maldives is beautiful, delicate and still largely untouched. Three-quarters of the 1,192 islands are uninhabited, although you may find lizards or storks. Peace and quiet, and long stretches of romantic beaches, are abundant. There are excellent watersport facilities, too, for those with more energy.
The beautiful, translucent sea teems with an exuberant variety of sights. The islands are home to a spectacular profusion of marine life, including some 200 species of coral, 300 species of fish and five species of turtle. The snorkelling is superb, a constant source of stunning surprises, and there are plenty of excellent dive sites to choose from.
The islanders themselves are laid-back and welcoming. They are proud of - and keen to preserve - their islands' reputation as one of the world's most beautiful and romantic destinations. They will want you to enjoy it all.
The Maldives offers some of the best and most relaxing accommodation you are ever likely to stay in. Comfort, luxury and stunning settings are the norm. There is a wonderful but bewildering array of resorts, each on a different island and each with its own distinct character. We can help you choose between them, and still remain within your budget.
