The Maldives, a group of over 1200 islands, is unquestionably one of the most intriguing tropical travel destinations in the world. A few years ago, it originally gained popularity among jet-setting celebrities, especially with in-love couples seeking a romantic escape to a private tropical island. However, with more airlines offering flights to the Maldives, it is now more accessible and reasonably priced. Families will love it too, since many Maldives resorts have lodging that is suitable for them and entertaining activities for everybody. There are currently more than 130 distinct Maldives resorts to select from, each providing a unique piece of paradise.
The Maldives are perfectly positioned in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, nearest to Sri Lanka. The many islands are spread out over a total area of 293km, making the Maldives one of the most geographically dispersed countries in the world. Now that the Maldives is becoming an increasingly popular holiday destination, many airlines operate flights to the country.
