Thumbs up Still Looking For Paradise?

Maldives - absolutely gorgeous and the most beautiful place on earth.


Double chain of twenty-six atolls…
The Republic of Maldives, or simply the Maldives, is an island nation in the Indian Ocean. It consists of approximately 1,190 coral islands grouped in a double chain of 26 atolls, along the north-south direction, spread over roughly 90,000 square kilometers, making this one of the most disparate countries in the world.



The atolls are composed of live coral reefs and sand bars, situated atop a submarine ridge 960 kilometers long that rises abruptly from the depths of the Indian Ocean and runs from north to south.






Crystal clear waters, beautiful white sand beaches, swaying palm trees and fabulous dive sites – that’s why the Maldives, is known for being one of the best tropical holiday destinations in the world.











...and no need to climb

With an average ground level of 1.5 metres (4 ft 11 in) above sea level, it is the lowest country on the planet. It is also the country with the lowest highest point in the world, at 2.3 metres (7 ft 7 in). More than 80 per cent of the country's land, composed of coral islands scattered over an area about 850 km across the equator, is less than one metre above sea level.



Summer never ends ...
The Indian Ocean has a great effect on the climate of the country by acting as a heat buffer, absorbing, storing, and slowly releasing the tropical heat. The temperature of Maldives ranges between 24 °C (75 °F) and 33 °C (91 °F) throughout the year. Although the humidity is relatively high, the constant cool sea breezes keep the air moving and the heat mitigated.



Crystal clear waters and azure blue lagoons...

Resorts in the Maldives
Each resort in the Maldives is housed on a separate island by itself and offers an exotic blend of modern luxury and isolated serenity.









Sunny, unique and unspoiled ...

You're not too far off. I believe it's mostly between $1,000 to $2,000 a night including tranfers.

Happened once Maldives was submerged.

As a result of the sea level rising, like the Republic of Kiribati (South Pacific) and Maldives (Indian Ocean), Tuvalu is also in danger of submerging. Water gushes out from the ground, and houses and roads are flooded during high tide. Spring water from dents that were made during construction of the airfield, lowlands where people tend to live, and contaminated wastewater dramatically decreasing foraminifers, which are responsible for forming sands, are suspected as the causes of this phenomenon. However, in Tuvalu, since the highest point is only 4.5 meters above sea level, it is a land easily affected by rises in the sea level.
