The Maldives is the Place to Getaway From it All

The Maldives has long been the center of the world of destination vacations, and they call to people from all walks of life. While you’re there, you just might brush elbows with one of the many celebrities who call the Maldives their home away from home.

So what is it about the Maldives that beckons like a siren calling to travelers? Not to put too fine a point on it, but it truly is paradise. The chain of islands off the coast of Sri Lanka has been inhabited continuously since at least the 5th century B.C. After being the source of a number of inter-nation scuffles for centuries, the Maldive Islands nation formally established independence from Britain in 1965. Although the islands are remote, it’s easy to see why they are so coveted by other nations: it boasts natural resources and jaw-dropping views sure to tempt any country with an envious gaze.
The nation is comprised of 1192 coral islands grouped into 26 separate atolls. Because the sand is comprised of pulverized coral and not quartz, it’s soft, fine, and a brilliant white, setting a dramatic contrast to the blue blue waters of the surrounding ocean. And those waters hold some of the most unique wildlife in the world. Maldives is home to 5 of the world’s 7 marine turtle species, is home to tourist favorite parrotfish, and a beautiful variety of native plant and animal species on land.
