If there’s a paradise on Earth, it has to be the Maldives. Picture perfect beaches with clear-as-glass water are everywhere in this archipelago of 1,192 coral islands. Only 185 islands are inhabited and 80 of them are private resorts.
Most of these resorts cover entire islands and spoil their guests with world class accommodation, Halal dining options and Muslim-friendly facilities. Home to massive reefs and nutrient-rich water, the Maldives is haven for divers and snorkelers keen to swim with marine animals like manta rays and whale sharks.
