What does getting away mean to you? A change of latitude… change of culture… away from the crowds… a place where no one knows your name? The “perfect escape” may just be a holiday on board a yacht in the Indian Ocean where you will find all of the above, and more.
The 115 strikingly beautiful tropical islands of the Seychelles archipelago, the Maldives which comprises 26 atolls, 1192 islets and 250 inhabited islands, the island nation of Madagascar off the southeastern coast of Africa – a botanical and zoological paradise, or the Indochinese Peninsula … Dream and leave the rest to us!
The Maldives is considered by many to be the premier tropical beach destination in the world and the best place to relax and unwind from the hectic and chaotic lifestyle of the modern world. The Maldives is an archipelago nation of 1,190 islands in the Indian Ocean renowned for its natural pristine beaches and island environment.
With over 100 different island resorts to choose from each island has it’s owned distinct feel and character. Sailing these waters offers many islands that are blessed with perfect coral beaches, lush tropical vegetation, warm shallow waters, with outstanding service on your yacht. There are only a few places in the world that have this combination of the unique turquoise sea and powder white sand with an all year round climate described as “a never ending summer”.
The warm seas of Maldives have high visibility throughout the year, with water clear enough to see the passing fish as far as fifty metres away at times. Add to that the marvelous formation of over 3000 coral reefs and the free flowing tides of the monsoons. The results of these perfect conditions have created one of the world’s richest diving coral reef areas.
Over a thousand species of fish and other underwater creatures inhabit the Maldivian waters. The monsoon tides of the Indian Ocean create a collection of small marine creatures as well as microscopic plant cells. This in turn creates a hub for all kinds of underwater species who gather in these waters lured by the abundance of food. The best thing is that you need not be a professional diver to enjoy the Maldives!
