The Indian Ocean's idyllic paradise
The Maldives are the ultimate beach holiday, so much so that they were voted as the Best Beach and Rest & Relaxation Destination in December 2008 by Country Brand Index.
Each island in the Maldives is completed surrounded by a soft white coral sandy beach, lapped by the warm Indian Ocean extending out towards the shallow house reefs and beyond making the Maldives a perfect destination for a beach holiday.
A beach holiday in the Maldives isn’t just about lazing on the beach however, and you will find that most of the larger beach resorts in the Maldives offer water sports, so you can try your hand at jet skiing, parasailing or canoeing. And of course, almost all of the resorts in the Maldives have some kind of dive school where, if qualified you can hire out equipment and go your own way, or you can undertake training from a qualified instructor to experience life under the Indian Ocean. All in all, the Maldives are the perfect beach holiday resort.
