The islands of the Maldives are located 300 miles South West of the Southern tip of India around the Equator. Most direct flights are with tour operators and a 10 hour flight from the UK brings you to fantastic luxury resorts The Maldives is made up of 1190 low-lying islands, only 200 of which are inhabited. Each one is surrounded by a reef enclosing a shallow lagoon. Some are just minor sandbanks, all are beautifully located. A hotel, or resort is on the whole an entire island and most of these take little more than 10 minutes to walk around. There is an abundance of watersports. Water-skiing is not always possible because of the shallow water around the reefs. Scuba diving makes up for this, providing probably the most varied and magical collection of underwater life anywhere in the world. For life and local colour, you'll have to visit the island of Male, with its street stalls and native life.
