The very mention of the Maldives islands is enough to evoke postcard-like images of white powdery sand beaches, tropical weather, and spectacular sunsets.
The archipelago enjoys a privileged location in the Indian Ocean, and the constant sea breeze keeps the temperatures at the comfortable average of 25°C. The archipelago is made up of 1,192 islands, of which only 200 are inhabited. So in fact, those looking to escape to an inhabited paradisiac island will have plenty of choice in the Maldives.
Tourism is relatively new to the Maldives islands. Until the early 1970s, the archipelago was not on the tourist trail. However, when tourism made its incursion in the islands, it did so with notable strength, and nowadays it accounts for almost 30 per cent of the country's GDP. It is not difficult to understand why visitors are attracted to the islands.
