Indulge in the archipelago’s sun-kissed, sandy-white specks of paradise during the day and be amazed at the night skies ablaze with more stars than you every knew existed. In recent years, the chain of more than 1,000 islands has become the focal point for the eco-fight against rising sea levels. This vulnerability gives a visit to Maldives an added sense of urgency: no one knows what the islands’ future holds.

The reeds are so pristine in Maldives that you do not have to go deep to see a lot.
Most islands are surrounded by calm shallow waters that only ebb and flow with the rising tides.
Take a trip on a submarine to see more at depths of up to 45m – well beyond what the average scuba diver can reach.
