The point of the Maldives is that it is not a single large island but is, instead, a collection of thousands of tiny coral islands. … Each island is surrounded by a lagoon of shallow water (though the Indian Ocean, with its deep blue water, lies beyond). Itis the clearest water you will ever see. A popular honeymoon destination for Indians, Maldives is a good place to visit if you want an international location teeming with Indians. Famous for its water sports and beaches, Maldives is heaven for seafood lovers. You can opt to stay with one of the locals for the complete experience.
