Maldives Island

I find it so facinating to see what different countries visit my blog. Some places I've never heard of before.
One day I saw Maldives pop up and I had to Google to find out where this place was located. It turns out to look like an amazing place I may want to visit one day.

Here's a bit of a description about the islands:

The Maldives are a group of islands totalling 1190! Most of these islands are not inhabited and are very small. Out of all of them, only around 200 are inhabited and out of these many of them are exclusively tourists’ resorts. It is located in the southern part of the Indian ocean about 400 miles south west of India.

If you are a person who loves the open seas and enjoys crystal clear waters, then visiting the Maldives is a must. The islands are made up of coral reefs which give it excellent scuba diving opportunities. Because of its geographic location, which is not far from the equator, the weather is predictably tropic. The beaches can boast of sparkling white sand and palm laced water fronts. All of the islands sit atop an atoll. Religions such as Buddhism and Islam exist side by side.
