Maldives-Holiday

DIVE INTO the Blues of Maldives

Imagine coming up close and personal with a majestic manta ray, performing graceful underwater ballets. Watching sea turtles graze on seagrass in the lagoon, unbothered by your presence.

The amazing underwater world, which put the Maldives on the world travel map in the first place, is an experience not to be missed.

Maldives is renowned for its white beaches all throughout the country. No beach is any shade darker than the colour we call “white”.
