Atolls of the Maldives Islands

Posted: April 14, 2014
The Republic of the Maldives (better known as the Maldive Islands) is a chain of twenty-six atolls situated in the Indian Ocean about 700 kilometres (430 mi) south-west of Sri Lanka and 400 kilometres (250 mi) south-west of India’s Kerala State. With a population of about 400,000 people, about 25% live on the small island capital of Malé. Reminiscent of other nearby nations such as Sri Lanka, India, and Bangladesh, the Maldivian people are known for their hospitality and big smiles. While most people around the world who have seen photos of the Maldives will think of luxurious resorts consisting of rows of wooden lodges perched on turquoise smooth waters, this is not the way Globerovers explores the world! Our way is the non-luxurious way to spend time with the locals on a far-away island void of any tourists, as well as islands free of any kind of human settlements. This is the best way to explore the Maldives!  Enjoy these photos mainly of Baa Atoll in the north, as well as the capital city of Malé situated on a small island.
