Cities in Maldives


The Maldives is an island nation, covering an area of over 90,000 sq km in the Indian Ocean. Ninety-nine per cent of this island is covered with the sea, with land being just one per cent. With a population of nearly 400,000 people, there are about 30 cities in the Maldives, each beautiful in its own way. Sheltering a sea that glows in the dark, attracting water adventure lovers for the experience of a lifetime, soothing travellers and visitors with warm white sand beaches, Maldives is rightly called one of the top honeymoon destinations in the world. The region not only blows love in the air but makes you fall in love with it for its rich sceneries and water-sport fantasies. Here are some of the must-visit cities in the Maldives!
