Maldives  :  The Sunny Side of Life


Maldives has deep blue seas, turquoise reefs, white sandy beaches and palm trees. It is also a place full of character, where its people have long spent their days languishing in the very essence of idyll living. While it is the perfect place to sit on a beach and watch a sunset with a cocktail balanced on your hand, it is also a geographical marvel, knowing that there are thousands of fish swimming around the vivid corals just a few feet away from where you sit.


The Maldives consists of hundreds of paradisiacal islands and coral atolls and are situated off the coasts of Southern Asia’s India and Sri Lanka. The majority of these islands are uninhabited, but those that are populated feature either sleepy local settlements surrounded by pristine beaches or first rate international seaside resort hotels.
6Snorkeling (underwater swimming without any more breathing equipment than a snorkel) is almost a national pastime in the Maldives . Almost all of the islands’ beaches feature sparkling white sand and seas of the purest sapphire blue, there are several resorts and beaches in the Maldives that deserve further inspection. o­ne of these is the Nika Island Resort, which is located about 74km away from the country’s capital at Male and which lies o­n an enchanting lagoon. Apart from snorkeling, visitors can also enjoy such diverse water activities as windsurfing, sunset fishing and canoeing.


The Banyan Tree Island Resort o­n the North Male Atoll is another example of a stunning Maldives seaside site. This resort’s beaches are the ideal venues for scuba diving, catamaran sailing and night-fishing and visitors can also enjoy water-skiing and deep sea fishing. The surf surrounding the South Male Atoll’s Cocoa Island Resort is enriched by the exotic species that wander in from the nearby Kandooma Channel, and fishing here can be a thrilling experience.
