If you're interested in the vast ocean and everything that lives in it – one of the best ways to explore it is through…
Located amidst the waves of the Indian Ocean is the island country of Maldives. In fact, the whole country comprises of not only one, but 26 islands altogether. These ring-shaped atolls consist of over a thousand coral islands and is an amazing site.
A majority of travellers visit the Maldives to experience scuba diving and snorkelling like no other place would. A place especially good to dive would be the “Banana Reef”. Getting its name from the oddly familiar shape of a banana, this reef has been the home to many species of multicoloured coral and fish alike. Many divers are led by guides, as they attempt to capture the essence of the reefs with the help of go pros and other nautical instruments and cameras. Among the large variety of marine wildlife hiding among the corals are the stripped Snappers, Wild sponges and the occasional barracuda and reef shark as well.
The places to explore when in the Maldives are quite innumerable. Most travellers recommend to plan ahead and if possible, hire a local tour guide to show you the way. One might get lost in this beautiful island paradise, and rightfully so. The beautiful deep blue ocean and ceramic white grainy sands can easily seduce anyone setting foot on the shores of the Maldives atolls.
