The environment has been kept natural and earthy though just to remain in touch with Mother Nature and the exoticness has not been manipulated in any way.

If we begin to explain the beauty of this tropical paradise then what comes to mind first is the gorgeous white sand shining all the way through, outlining the water which has mixed shades of blue and turquoise. Standing tall along the sidelines are the brilliantly well-maintained coconut and palm trees which makes the oceanic scene a picturesque beauty. Anyone would agree that for fishing, watersports and perfect tropical experience Maldives is the place to visit. The reefs and atolls present at the islands host some of the most amazing quantities of colorful sea life one would ever see.

It has become an internationally known destination for providing the best recreational diving experience. Diving is a completely unique, adventurous yet equally safe experience over here. The North Male Atoll is the most explored and chosen place for diving. South Male Atoll provides the craziest dive experience due to the strong currents and a long wreck for adventurous people. Ari Atoll presents wider open spaces and boasts of a large variety of dive styles that is reefs, wrecks and walls. Nilandhoo Atoll is more of a remote kind with barely investigated waters and provides an exclusively quiet diving adventure. So, there is a huge treasure of diving styles and versatile options open for exploration in Maldives. Currents are the most defining feature for enjoying the prefect dive and vary seasonally, so it is advisable to choose the resort according to the wind directions prevailing during the visiting season.

Snorkeling is another great option, as it allows, by just floating along the reefs casually, having a closer look at the creatures of all sorts living beneath the cleanliest water one can ever find. At night, the lighting attracts baby sharks which are an incredulous sight to cherish forever. But that’s not all, visitors can enjoy a huge variety of water sports and there are separately built areas where kids can get a touch of sea life and similar sports under the guidance of well trained staff. This facility is available at every resort in Maldives.

The beach resorts in Maldives are literally beach-oriented, highly developed and most facilitated. These resorts are built in a way that they provide not just the perfect view of the ocean but one can enjoy the experience of living on the water itself by opting for the incredible water bungalows.
