Travel Videos About Maldives

Maldives

Short guide to the Maldives

The Maldives has become synonymous with the word paradise. Its picture-postcard sandy beaches and images of swaying palm trees have grabbed the imagination of thousands of travellers who seek the ultimate in a luxurious and peaceful escape.

Only a few of the islands in the archipelago that forms the Maldives are inhabited but 87 are beautiful resorts. It is these that provide the vision of a tropical paradise that adorns holiday brochures and provides the perfect haven for honeymooners.

The Maldives differ from other would-be paradise destinations in that it really is how it looks in the pictures. Luring honeymooners and well-to-do couples with images of clear blue waters, white sands and palm trees is big business, but the Maldives has successfully delivered on its promise. 

Tourists really do feel like they have been washed up on a desert island as the Maldives is a small country in the middle of the vast Indian Ocean. It has 1200 tiny coral islands and the highest point above sea level is about 2M. 

The area’s history was marred by a series of fights for control. This began with Muslims ruling, and later the Portuguese replaced the Arabs. The British took over until 1965 – the year the Maldives celebrated its independence as a sultanate. Sunni Muslims make up most people of the Maldives population.
