Maldives has deep blue seas, turquoise reefs, white sandy beaches and palm trees. It is also a place full of local character, where its people have long spent their days perfecting the art of idyll living. While it is a perfect place to sit on a beach and watch a sunset with a cocktail balanced in your hand, it is also a geographical marvel, with unparalleled underwater scenery surrounding every island.
