Imagine landing, after an incredible aircraft flight, in one of the hundreds of atolls that make up this wonderful country of crystal waters andbreathtaking scenery.
Not only is a place to relax, Maldives is also the perfect spot for scuba divers and snorkelers. You can see millions of marine animals, includingturtles, manta rays and sharks.
Located in the Indian Ocean, this country, officially known as Republic ofMaldives, consists of over one thousand islands surrounded by coral reef and separated by lagoons; but only 200 of them are inhabited. These islands are grouped into 26 atolls, and interestingly, each of them has thename of one or more of the Thaana writing letters, referring to the language of the Maldives, Dhivehi.
To get an idea, more than 90% of the country is under the sea. What makes that, from the sky, Maldives is a unique ecosystem in the world.
Now that you know a little more about Maldives and the reason why I choose this country for today’s Friday Pic, what do you think if we pickone of its islands, pack and fly there?
