The Maldives, a tropical paradise of pristine beaches, are an archipelago of 1,192 coral islands grouped into 26 coral atolls (200 inhabited islands, plus 80 islands with tourist resorts) in the Indian Ocean. They lie south-southwest of India and are considered part of Southern Asia. Maldives is an ideal destination for a Destination Wedding or Honeymoon! A vacation in the Maldives would be relaxing with the white sand beaches and coconut palms surrounded. The first thing you will see when you look at an island from a distance will be coconut palms and green trees. If you are travelling from a seaplane you could see the beautiful islands from the window, and give you an amazing experience of seeing the small chained islands from above.
