The Maldives extends from North to South with around 820 km and from East to West around 130 km.Islam is the religion followed in the Maldives and more than half of the population is considered rural apart from those living in Male. Most of the atolls are low-lying coral islands around 5 ft above sea level where you will find sandy beaches, palm trees, breadfruit trees, lagoons, and tropical bushes.The economy of Maldives is mostly dependant on fishing and tourism.There are plenty of things to do and places to visit in Maldives like Male, Hulhumale, Maafushi Island, Vaadhoo Island, and Addu atoll.

In 1887, The Maldives was controlled by the British and got independence from them on 26th July 1965. Tourism in the Maldives began to evolve in the 1970s and now it is one of the most popular honeymoon destinations in the world. All the islands in the Maldives do not rise more than 5 ft above the sea level but due to global warming and melting of ice, the Maldives is directly threatened.

They started the rebuilding process and since then never looked back.

How to reach the Maldives:

The Maldives is an island nation surrounded by water so the only travel here is by air. However, there are different modes of transportations to travel from one island to another.

By Airways:

Velana International Airport is the main airport in the Maldives near the capital city of Male. There are many direct flights operating to Male from major Asian and Gulf countries while people who are looking to travel from North America, Europe, and Africa can travel via Gulf cities. From India, airlines like Indigo, Go Air, and Air India have direct flights from Delhi, Mumbai, and major cities from South India. For travel between the islands one can take the below options.

Domestic Flight:

It is a cheaper option among the three but it can be a tiring option because the flight will not land you on your island so you may need to take a speedboat ride after this domestic flight. Don’t forget the long journey you take from your country to reach Male.


This is a costly option but if money is not a concern to you then use this mode of transportation to make your trip an extra special one. The view you will get from the top is simply amazing.
