IN THE KNOW
An island destination like no other.
The Maldives is an archipelago of 1200 islands grouped into 26 atolls dotted across 871 kilometers in the Indian Ocean and is one of the most dispersed countries in the world, where only 200 islands are inhabited by Maldivians, less than 200 islands are tourist resorts and the remaining islands are left untouched or are partially submerged underwater.
A paradise for underwater explorers, the Maldives is home to 5% of the world’s coral reefs and over 2000 species of marine species including 14 species of sharks and 23 species of cetaceans (whales, dolphins and porpoises); all of which are protected under Maldivian law.
