With its abundant marine life and white sandy beaches, the Maldives is many
people's idea of paradise on earth.
A group of small islands dotted around the warm waters of the Indian Ocean about four
hundred fifty kilometers southwest of Sri Lanka. The Maldives is home to a community
of just three hundred and fourteen thousand people.
The Maldivian economy evolves around two main
business sectors: tourism and fishing. Tourism is the main source of income in the Maldives.
And with average temperatures of around twenty nine degrees Celsius, that's about eighty five
degrees Fahrenheit, the holiday season never ends.
Maldivian society remains firmly rooted
in local traditions and Muslim faith. The major language is Dhivehi although English is spoken
at all hotels and most shops.
Thirty percent of Maldivians live in the capital city Malé, a bustling metropolis with busy
markets and shops. A far cry from the tranquility of local fishing villages and resort islands.
But the Maldives are not only famous for lavish resorts, they're also one of the world's top
destinations for scuba diving. Sprawling labyrinths of coral reefs teem with myriad marine species,
for many the highlight of their trip is encountered with whale sharks and mantas, the
gentle giants of the ocean. Seafaring and exploration are part of the country's DNA,
so it comes as little surprise that livable cruises are a big attraction in the Maldives.
The sense of adventure, freedom and pure relaxation found aboard such cruises is unique.
Anchoring at a different lagoon every day and having access to the country's top dive sites
offers a brilliant holiday experience.
Spending a week or more cruising around the
atolls is the best way to get to know the country. A holiday in the Maldives will leave
you convinced that paradise truly is a place on earth.
