Maldives is a tropical country in the Indian Ocean, with 26 ring-shaped atolls and more than 1,000 coral islands. You reach your hotel island from Malé, the capital, by seaplane and it does it! The flight over the atolls will remain a highlight of your stay in the Maldives. The seaplane lands on the lagoon and you board a dhoni, a small traditional fishing boat, to reach the shore of your island on turquoise water.... the great class! In the Maldives, hotels with their villas on stilts compete in luxury and do everything to make you feel like you are in heaven. Atolls and beaches, bungalows and coconut palms, fish and fresh fruit every day, massages and cruises... Sports enthusiasts will go fishing offshore on a dhoni, play beach volleyball, canoe on the reef, windsurf or catamaran, dive or surf. Don't miss a stopover in Male, where you will enjoy the fish market and Majeedhee Magu, the main road, which you will follow to bargain in the small craft shops before sitting down in a traditional restaurant. You will be amazed by the Hukuru Miskiy mosque made entirely of sculpted white coral (17th century). And already, it will be time to go back to your flippers or hammocks. A look at your tour guide to learn more about the history of the Maldives, perhaps?
