What is special about the coral in Maldives?
Why should you visit the Maldives?
- Explore the coral reefs in Maldives. Coral reefs protect the pristine beaches at Anantara Dhigu, Anantara Veli and Naladhu Maldives, and guard the islands’ crystal-clear lagoon. They also support an astounding array of tropical fish, crustaceans and bizarre-looking molluscs.
What is the geography of Maldives?
- The Maldives lies in two rows of atolls in the Indian Ocean. Each atoll is made of a coral reef that circles a lagoon, with deep channels dividing the reef ring. A string of islands take their places among this atoll ring. The islands have their own reef encircling the island lagoon.
Why are the Maldives' island names so complicated?
- The names of the atolls, islands and coral reefs of the Maldives have a curious mixture of spellings, resulting in many simplifications to make titles more readable. In some cases, original meanings of words have also been changed.
