Maldives

 The Maldives is the largest archipelago that was created by living organisms – coral polyps. The Maldives comprise white sandy beaches and scarlet dawns of the Indian Ocean, exotic birds, unique plants, magnificent azure waters and tropical fish.
 All the Maldivian dive sites are picturesque, although each of them is special in its own way. Ari Atoll, Lhaviyani Atoll, North Male Atoll and South Male Atoll are very popular among the divers. As for the wrecks, cargo vessel Maldive Victory, which sunk not far from Male, is the most famous. There is also a dry cargo ship at Halaveli island near Ari Atoll, around which there are a lot of marbled rays lying on the sand. Here is our guide to help you choosing a perfect itinerary and boat for your Maldives Liveaboard trip.
