The Maldives is a tropical nation in the Indian Ocean composed of 26 ring-shaped atolls, which are made up of more than 1,000 coral islands. It’s known for its beaches, blue lagoons and extensive reefs. The capital, Malé, has a busy fish market, restaurants and shops on the main road, Majeedhee Magu, and 17th-century Hukuru Miskiy (also known as Friday Mosque) made of carved white coral.

Unrivalled luxury, stunning white-sand beaches and an amazing underwater world in luminous cyan-blue water make Maldives an obvious choice for a true holiday of a lifetime and it is most definitely on my “bucket list” of places to visit in my own lifetime.

With some of the best diving and snorkelling in the world, the clear waters of Maldives are a magnet for anyone with an interest in marine life. The richness and variety is astonishing; dazzling coral walls, magnificent caves and schools of brightly coloured tropical fish await you when you get down to the reef. In deeper waters lurk manta rays, turtles, sharks and even the world’s largest fish, the whale shark. The best bit? The water is so warm many people don’t even wear a wetsuit.

Being such an obviously island nation our marine life Paua Shell Jewellery pieces definitely prove to be the most popular, including dolphins, whales, and turtles.

Maybe when I am lucky enough to visit I can go snorkelling and see some of these amazing creatures.
