The Maldives: Why Go?
Inviting islands and crystal clear waters
Endless turquoise waters make up about 90% of the Maldives. Of its more than 1,000 islands only 200 are inhabited and only 90 of these lovely islands have been developed as resorts. The rest of the islands are waiting to be explored by the continuous influx of tourists that visits the Maldives especially in December when temperatures in the Northern Hemisphere drop below zero.
The weather in the Maldives is generally balmy in the morning, sunny during the day and breezy at night with average temperature all year round at 30°C. Dramatic sunsets, lustrous and bursting with color are a common sight in this tropical paradise north of the equator.
