In the center of the Indian Ocean, the
Maldives are a cluster of coral reefs that formed on the sides of prehistoric
volcanoes which have sunk into the sea leaving a chain of idyllic coral
islands. With clear blue skies and sunshine all through the year, this is the
place for diving and snorkeling, viewing the glorious marine life on the coral
reefs. Everything is possible here from high end, pampering luxury boutique
hotels to ecological back to nature resorts that emphasize the rich biological
diversity of the area.
