Take an adventure sailing holiday to the MALDIVES with World Expeditions, one of the world’s leading travel companies.
The Maldives are located southwest of Sri Lanka, on the equator and consist of 1,190 coral islands, forming an archipelago of 26 major atolls. The Maldives stretch 820 kilometers north to south and 120 kilometers east to west. Only 202 of the 1190 islands are inhabited and of these 87 are exclusive resort islands.
The origins of the Maldivian’s are lost in antiquity, but history reveals that the islands have been populated for over 3,000 years ago. Early settlers were travellers on the Silk Route and from the Indus Valley Civilization. Inherently warm, friendly and hospitable by nature, it is easy to feel comfortable and relaxed with a Maldivian.
On World Expeditions sailing adventures in the Maldives you will swim and snorkel the magical waters coming face to face with the amazing plethora of sea life. During the day your boat will cruise between islands, and at night your boat will moore off remote islands with small settlements, a world away from the resorts.
