Maldives, as it is popularly known “The pearls of the Indian Ocean”, are situated in the South West of Sri Lanka, on the equator. The numerous coral reef islands, 1,190 in total, form an archipelago of 26 major atolls (groups of neighboring coral islands). The country stretches 820 km north to south and 120 km east to west. Out of the incredibly large number of islands only 200 islands are inhabited, with 44 islands adapted as exclusive resort islands. The climate is generally warm and humid. Sun shines all year through with average temperature around 29-32 degrees Celsius. The country’s 2000 population census shows a total of 270,101 people living in the country. Almost 2/3 of this figure resides in the capital island Male.
The island of Male is also the Maldives capital city. Many fascinating hours can be spent wandering through the maze of streets and selecting souvenirs from the markets. Also popular for shopping is the group of stores known as the ‘Singapore Bazaar’, where local handicrafts are on sale. Male includes over 20 mosques, from tiny one-room structures to the huge Grand Friday Mosque which can be seen from virtually any point on the small island. The oldest of Male’s mosques, the Hukuru Miski, features highly detailed stone carvings which date back to the 13th century.
The Maldives resort islands are simply stunning. Most are located in the atolls of North Male, South Male and Ari, which are close to the capital. Their palm-fringed white sands, clear waters and tropical plant life seduce every visitor. Scuba-diving is the number-one activity in the Maldives, offering you the chance to see the beautiful underwater vistas close up.
The Maldives could hardly be more romantic, which make them the ideal setting for your wedding day. As you exchange your vows in these tropical surroundings, you can be sure that it is an experience you will never forget.
