Scattered in the cool, clear waters of the Indian Ocean, the Maldives is a collection of more than one thousand stunning tiny choral islands.
Maldives scattered across the Indian Ocean open up a world of
opportunity for travellers who want to embark upon a personal
adventure full of stunning beaches, mouth-watering food and
first-class service. The Maldives are a range of coral reefs which
developed around the sides of ancient volcanoes and remained on the
ocean surface once the rock formations had sunk. What's left is a
remarkable selection of islands offering white sands, clear bright
blue seas and endless sunshine. Let Signature take you on a journey
to the magnificent Maldives.
