A Diver's Paradise

In the turquoise expanses of the Indian Ocean, the emerald Republic of Maldives, along with its natural atolls astride the equator, has over a thousand islands, of which only 200 are inhabited. The country, reachable by air from all major international cities, offers unspoilt white sand beaches, coral reefs, top-notch diving sites, and rich marine life. The crystal clear water and warm climate make diving easy and enjoyable. The finest surf breaks in the North and South Malé Atolls can be explored from April to October. Catamaran sailing, surfing, and snorkeling are popular here. Visits to vibrant local markets (check out the fish!), artificial beaches, and the presidential palace in the capital, Malé, are an experience by itself. Within Malé, tourists prefer the cheap taxis, but for inter-island traveling, the local boats called dhonies are the best bet. A ferry, costing less than a dollar per head, is the best option to travel between Hulhulé Island, where the international airport is, and Malé. One note of caution: don't wear revealing clothes in public places.
