I want to confess, I hate autumn. This season makes me feel very depressed and I always try to find a good escape. This year I think that I have found a perfect hiding place – Maldives.

Autumn is the best season for planning your trip to Maldives, the rain season which is mainly from May to August is over and it is warm and sunny there now. The temperature in Maldives never falls below 77F (25C) and I was adviced in different travel agencies to visit Maldives any time between November and April.

The Maldives is situated in the South West of Sri Lanka, on the equator. The numerous coral reef islands, 1,190 in total, form an archipelago of 26 natural atolls ( groups of neighbouring coral islands). These 26 atolls are organised into 19 administrative atolls with the capital island of Male’ established as an entity of its own forming the twentieth division. Out of the incredibly large number of islands only 202 are inhabited and 87 are exclusive resort islands.

With around 2000 coral reefs, sandbars and coral outcrops, Maldives coral islands are a delight for scuba divers, snorkeling enthusiasts and people who love marine life. The coral reefs and atolls provide shelter for many species of fish, and other marine creatures. You can see numerous colorful fish swimming round the coral reefs in Maldives, while swimming or snorkeling in the clear blue water of the Indian Ocean around Maldives coral islands.

I have heard a lot of amazing stories about Maldives, saw great number of breathtaking pictures, but have never been there myself. One of my friends went on Honeymoon there and I think that they couldn’t find the better place for romantic escape. Clear blue warm water, white sand, and you and your beloved one alone on the island! What can be more romantic?! I am dying to get there?!
