The Maldives consists of hundreds of paradisiacal islands and coral atolls and are situated off the coasts of Southern Asia's India and Sri Lanka. The majority of these islands are uninhabited, but those that are populated feature either sleepy local settlements surrounded by pristine beaches or first rate international seaside resort hotels.

Snorkeling is almost a national pastime in the Maldives and, although all of the islands' beaches feature sparkling white sand and seas of the purest sapphire blue, there are several resorts and beaches in the Maldives that deserve further inspection. o­ne of these is the Nika Island Resort, which is located about 74km away from the country's capital at Male and which lies o­n an enchanting lagoon. Apart from snorkeling, visitors can also enjoy such diverse water activities as windsurfing, sunset fishing and canoeing.

The Banyan Tree Island Resort o­n the North Male Atoll is another example of a stunning Maldives seaside site. This resort's beaches are the ideal venues for scuba diving, catamaran sailing and night-fishing and visitors can also enjoy water-skiing and deep sea fishing. The surf surrounding the South Male Atoll's Cocoa Island Resort is enriched by the exotic species that wander in from the nearby Kandooma Channel, and fishing here can be a thrilling experience.

The Maldives also offers some superb surfing locations, particularly o­n the Outer Atoll and the North Male Atoll, and the best time to surf would be during the March through November monsoon period. First rate surfing spots include the Kanifinolhu and Lohifushi Island resorts.

The Maldives offers spectacular beaches where everyone can have fun in the sun.
