Maldives Islands, The Capital of Dreams

23 February, 21:02

Maldives is an island country consisting of 1200 islands and islets located in the Indian Ocean. Maldives are made up of atolls. Although the word Atol is derived from the Maldivian local language, it is accepted and used worldwide. The Maldivian Government uses the word atoll in both administrative and geographic terms. There are 26 natural atolls in the Maldives. As an administration, the government has divided these atolls into 20 administrative atolls.

Atolls are island communities settled either closed or open, gathered around a lagoon. The islands that make up the Maldives have around 400 settlements on average. Some islands are still untouched and unexplored.

 Islands in the atolls in the Maldives were formed by the effect of reefs. Many reefs also have no islands. Islands are generally flat and sandy. Some islands are long and some have a round structure. The currents in the reefs sometimes cause the islands to disappear, and sometimes new islands to emerge. So the Maldives islands are constantly disappearing and re-formed. The islands around the Atolls have names in their own language. Some islands are completely untouched or even unexplored. Atolls have rich surface and underwater biodiversity. This makes the islands places to be seen.
