Maldives, South Asia
Splashing through puddles may be fun, but the aquatic activities in the Maldives are a little more adventurous. Each of the 1200 Maldivian isles has its own shallow lagoon, formed by encircling coral reefs, which makes them a dream setting for scuba divers and snorkelers alike.
The Maldives is also the perfect destination for lounging under swaying palms on picture-perfect beaches, sailing on tropical shores or simply do nothing in paradise surroundings.
The luxury resorts are more than just a place to rest your head. Take advantage of exotic spas, fitness centres and even water villas!
