Maldives

The Republic of Maldives is an archipelago consisting of 26 atolls situated in the Indian Ocean. This chain of islands, stretching across in a north-south direction, lies across the equator between 7° 6′ 30″ and 0° 41′ 48″ south and between 72° 32′ 30″ and 73° 45′ 54″ east of Greenwich. The closest neighbours of Maldives are India (595 km) to the north, Sri Lanka (670 km) to the northeast and the Chagos Archipelago (550 km) directly to the south.Maldives consists of a double chain of 1,190 coral islands oriented at a north-south direction in the Laccadives Sea in the Indian Ocean. These islands are grouped into 26 natural atolls, which for organisational purposes have been divided into 20 administrative atolls. The land area of this archipelago is approximately 298 sq km stretched across 118,000 sq km of water, which makes over 99% of the Maldives to be made of water! The equator cuts across the country between the southernmost atolls, laying Addu and Foammulah to the south and Gaafdhal Atoll to the north.Maldives diving is year round. Each season brings the opportunity to see the same creatures, BIG and small. What makes the seasons different are the conditions determined by the two monsoons. Of interest: the Maldives waters support the world’s largest known population of reef manta rays all year round. Whale sharks can be seen all year round as well, which are two bucket list creatures of every scuba diver. Read more in activities section under diving and snorkeling. Below overview of all the atolls we visit with details of their hightlights and attractions for divers.
