The Maldives attracts couples looking for romantic luxury vacations, families on beach holidays, and scuba divers seeking to explore the extraordinary underwater world and its myriad inhabitants. The currents flowing through the channels bring the food that explains the profusion of life with vast schools of fish, sharks and rays.
