Renowned for white sandy beaches and cobalt blue waters, Maldives is one of the most popular island getaways. It has a broad appeal, being the favoured choice among sun worshippers, honeymooners and divers. The country has some of the best diving spots in the world, and you cannot visit the island and pass up the chance to meet its offshore denizens. Diving being one of the prime attractions of the beach island, you can find many diving outfits. There are also diving institutes that offer training and professional diving certificates.

Diverland Summer Island is the name of the diving base located on the Summer Island Village. It is one of the largest diving bases in the North Atoll. As Summer Island is located on the vicinity of the North Atoll, you get to see a large mix of the islands famous marine life. Keep an eye peeled for colourful clownfish, sleek and powerful sharks, and eerie and alien looking giant manta rays. And with Diverland offering over 40 diving sites to choose from, you can optimise your trip depending on the type of aquatic life you would like to see.

There are two types of dives. The one for the adventure lover consists of channel dives, where divers ride along strong currents at exhilarating speeds. At certain points these currents cause upwelling, where sharks gather in large numbers. Watching them swim along the currents is a breathtaking sight, and is not for the faint of heart. Woshi Mas Thila and Kuda Faru, are two of the most popular diving spots to observe sharks in action. Those who want a more relaxed dive can opt for a diving site with slow currents, like the spots on the Outside Reef. Visibility is very good here, and there is a wealth of marine life available at all depths.

Maldives Resorts have no equal, and Luxury Hotels Maldives are famous for their hospitality. With many places to choose from, it can get a little confusing though. You can try the Kurumba Maldives if your goal is total relaxation. The resort is located on a private tropical island, boasting some of the best Maldivian beaches. You get complete privacy and seclusion, but if you want a change of scenery, the capital city is merely 10 minutes away by speedboat. The resort truly embodies Maldivian hospitality, and you will not hesitate to come back.
