Usually I’m not one for resort destinations, but holy cow this place looks awesome. I definite wouldn’t mind spending a couple days here. The water is crystal clear and life abounds in this tropical destination. I bet there is tons of bonefish, permit, milkfish to be found on these atolls.
Here is an excerpt from Wiki
the Maldive Islands, is an island nation in the Indian Ocean formed by a double chain of twenty-six atolls oriented north-south off India’s Lakshadweep islands, between Minicoy Island and Chagos Archipelago. It stands in the Laccadive Sea, about seven hundred kilometers (435 mi) south-west of Sri Lanka and (250 mi) south-west of India. During the colonial era, the Dutch referred to the country as “Maldivische Eilanden” in their documentation, while “Maldive Islands” is the anglicised version of the local name used by the British, which later came to be written “Maldives”.
