Geography in Republic of Maldives

The Maldives island is officially known as the Republic of Maldives and the geographical location of Maldives is towards the south-west of Sri Lanka and India in the Indian Ocean. The nation is comprised of around 1,190 coral islands conformed to 26 characteristic ring-like atolls; spread more than 90,000 square kilometers. These atoll structures are shaped upon a sharp edge ascending from the sea, in this way making their overall uniqueness. The reefs of the islands, buzzing with incalculable submerged animals and dynamic corals, shield the islands from wind and the sea waves. This extraordinary structure of reefs and channels makes the route practically unimaginable for anyone without adequate nearby information on the waters. The region grasps an all-out territory of 90,000 sq. km yet that incorporates the ocean, which structures 99.6% of the Maldives. The land region of the apparent multitude of islands adds up to 298 sq. km. The Maldives has no slopes; however, a few islands have hills that can arrive at 2.4 meters (7.9 feet) above ocean level, similar to the NW shoreline of Hithadhoo (Seenu Atoll) in Addu Atoll. Islands are too little to even consider having waterways, however little lakes and bogs can be found in some of them. Do notice a phenomenal feature during your tour to the Maldives, that is, the water looks crystal clear here because of salt content and high temperatures, restricting the growth of algae in the water.
