8 Interesting Facts About Maldives

The Maldives is an underwater honeymoon paradise and a hot destination for tourists looking for an escape from the reality. Here are 8 interesting facts about Maldives 🇲🇻:

1️⃣ The best time to visit the Maldives is November to April. 🧳

2️⃣ The Maldives has a 100% Islamic population, and while vacation islands with hotels allow this, in public places, alcohol, bathing suits, and public displays of affection are illegal.🚫

3️⃣ Rising sea levels due to climate change have already made several dozen of Maldivian islands disappear - it is scary to realize that this piece of heaven on Earth will soon be gone because of ecological problems humans have caused. You can make a change on a personal level by following sustainable habits and educating those around you!♻️

4️⃣ The Maldives is made up of over 1,000 small islands, and while not all of those islands are inhabited, some islands are man-made. 🏝

5️⃣ There’s almost a year-round population of most diverse marine life: whale sharks and dolphins in the South Ari Atoll, Manta rays in the North Male Atoll, and Hammerhead sharks in the Rasdhoo Atoll.🦈

6️⃣ The Maldives are incredibly safe as the crime rates are low to nonexistent, but the major danger may come from the nature. 🌊

7️⃣ Seaplane flights may double the cost of your trip, so make sure to budget a decent amount for transportation between the islands. ✈️

8️⃣ Some Maldivian islands are actually concave, allowing you to dive underneath, which is a very rare opportunity you may encounter. 🤿
