The Maldives is famous for its pristine waters and bright white beaches. But peel yourself off the sun lounger and you'll find that there is much more to the Maldives than first meets the eye. The collection of islands is bursting with underwater adventures, an abundance of wildlife, a rich culture and a mouth-watering cuisine. 

This evening will take you on a virtual tour of the delicious gastronomy, the marine-filled clear ocean and those iconic over-water villas. Whether you have been before or it’s on your travel wish list, the Maldives won’t fail to surprise you.
