The Worlds Best Snorkeling - Maldives

Snorkeling is one of the primary activities for visitors to the Maldives as the water clarity is excellent due to the islands' location hundreds of kilometers away from any major landmass. Consisting of 1,190 coral islands grouped into 26 coral atolls, this archipelago in the Indian Ocean is also abundant with aquatic life from the smallest anemones to large pelagics.

"Snorkeling over the shallow reefs of the islands is an ideal way to explore the underwater world. The house reefs of most of the islands are just a few strokes away from the beach. Even if the reef are quite shallow and one may simply walk up to the reef to enjoy its beauty." (VisitMaldives.com)
