The tropical island setting and the tourist attractions in Maldives are an ideal setting for beach lovers and water sports enthusiasts. The innate charm of the place has attracted tourists from all over the world for years but only recently have they started welcoming tourists to the local, inhabited islands. This means many islands are still relatively unknown territory to travelers and not overrun by tourists.

The famous, unique Maldives tourist attractions are the huge, postcard-perfect lagoons around the many low-lying islands, big and small. There are many natural tourist attractions in Maldives such as the lovely beaches, serene lagoons, and amazing diving spots, coral reefs for snorkelling and even great waters for surfing. Absorbing the picturesque scenery is an activity in itself.
