Things to see in The Maldives
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Landscapes

Tropical pearls scattered on the Indian Ocean, the Maldives offer scenes which correspond to most people's idea of paradise. Turquoise waters, lush forests, coconut trees and fine sand: all of these ingredients blend subtly into the landscape. Here, the scene is set for your escape to a faraway land of dreams, peace and pleasure.

The fauna and flora

Swimming in the Maldives is like diving into a giant aquarium. Its marine flora and fauna are of such an amazing diversity, an absolute delight to any diver, whether they are professional or amateur. The landscapes, however, have nothing to envy of their marine counterparts; there are many rare species thriving in the lush vegetation of such a small but diverse nation.

Activities and leisure

Although suntanning may be the main attraction of the Maldives, it is not the only activity in the archipelago! In addition to lazing about, blissful holidaymakers can participate in both land-based and water sports as well as take advantage of the well-being centres that are popping up like water lilies in all of the resorts.
