A vast underwater mountain range known as the Chagos-Laccadive Ridge gives us Mauritius and many other islands, atolls and reefs around the country.

Maldives – for the divers

It’s important to state that the Maldives is not just one island. It’s made up of a group of small atolls and each one of these pieces of land have their own house reef. This is what makes the Maldives perfect for divers, I mean come on, it’s even got “dives” in the name. While the Male and North and South Ari Atolls are the most popular, there are unforgettable experiences to be had throughout the archipelago.

If you look forward to getting below the waves on your holiday, or you plan your breaks specially for diving, then the Maldives has to be on your destination list. The Maldivian climate is perfect for diving, and it’s even named it one of the best destinations in the world to get into the blue.

While diving in the Maldives is pretty awesome all year round, if you want those perfect conditions then December to March is the best time to visit. The hottest months on the archipelago are from April to June. So if you fancy really soaking up the sun when you’re not in the water then that’s your chance.
