Luxury villas in turquoise lagoons!
Perhaps the 8th miracle! Exoticism, tranquility, color, relaxation, palm trees and turquoise calm waters. The dream of people living in a constant movement in the big cities of the western world. Emerald seas, whitewashed magnificent sandy beaches, dense vegetation and coconut trees that climb to the sea, dreamed with sunsets and moonlit unforgettable evenings. All this composes the dream called "MALDIVES". The special feature - trademark in MALDIVES is that each islet has a hotel. The hotel consists only of bungalows that are literally "drowned" in the coconut trees and thus ensures absolute privacy up to the sea water, as the green literally touches the water. Apart from the bungalows on land, waterbungalows are also sought after. That is, wooden villes in the water.
Besides, around every island there is a natural barrier of coral that makes the waters calm like a turquoise lagoon. In fact, the sand in MALDIVES comes from the accumulation of coral grains, which is why the MALDIVES have the most white sand on the earth. And the 80 islands - hotels are dreamy. Everyone's preference lies in whether it will be more luxurious or sportive to stay. Impressive and special is even the way of access to the islands.
Male ...the capital
From the capital - which is also the largest island - there are boats connecting to the adjacent island that is elongated and is the Maldives airport. They accept international flights and small hydroplanes. When you fly with these 10-seater low-level seaplanes, it is enchanted by the spectacle: one of the wonders of the earth.
The hundreds of islands, like turquoise rings on a blue background, in various sizes and in various phases of formation. Small sandy terrains ready to pop out from the green waters or islets of 10 sq. M. with 1 coconut and the endless sandy or dense with palm-fronted land. An Endless Play of Water With Coral! The high maintenance costs of water desalination, underground electricity supply wiring make the Maldives one of the most expensive parts of the earth. However, the dream becomes reality with little money if the Maldives and the neighboring Sri Lanka are combined smartly, but it is an independent destination. Let's note that Colombo, the capital of Sri Lanca, is only 1 hour from MALE and is connected to daily flights.
