The most beautiful Maldives islands and beaches

If your idea of travel dream corresponds to stay in a hut on the water, swimming with tropical fish in the crystal clear sea and lie down on a soft, white beach, the Maldives are definitely the place where your dreams can come true .

Located in the Indian Ocean on the equator in the area south west of Sri Lanka, the Maldives is an archipelago of over 1000 islands (many of which are uninhabited) that form 26 atolls protected by coral reefs. Speaking of holidays in the Maldives is to refer to the fine sand, the sunny skies and turquoise waters that overlook beaches surrounded by coconut palms. Particularly loved by the couple on their honeymoon, a romantic destination is yes, but also adapts to the amusement of all thanks to the many different activities it offers. Among the best are the diving at the reef and snorkeling on the surface: it is easy to see many colorful fish even if you are not experienced divers; in fact, they manage to see, already from a depth of one meter.

The large amount of islands makes it difficult to judge which are the most beautiful beaches. A task made even more difficult by the fact that all the atolls have similar characteristics related to the sand and the sea. Also with regard to the climate, in all areas of the archipelago the average temperatures range from 26 to 31 ° C. The best time to visit the Maldives is from December to April, months that are inserted between periods characterized by more precipitation (May to December) and the change of monsoon (mid-May – end of November).
