Consisting of 26 natural atolls – islands and isolated reefs – the Maldives is a great holidays destination to encounter all sorts of marine life, pristine beaches, and the bright blue waters of the sparkling Indian Ocean. Some of the islands are so small, that they host just one resort, while others are bigger with urban centres flocked with shopping areas and plenty of restaurants and hotels.  

However, the truth is that the exotic beauty of the Maldives can be experienced only by staying in an isolated island with waterfront suites, lagoon villas, and exotic bungalows! But, just in case you're seriously considering to explore the urban aspect of the Maldives, the four largest cities are Male at Kaafu Atoll, Fuvahmulah at Gnyaviyani Atoll, Hithadhoo at Addu City Atoll, and Kulhudhuffushi at Haa Dhaalu Atholhu.
