World's Best Destination for the third year in a row
Endless beaches of sand as fine as flour and as white as snow, but much warmer; waters that from far away are turquoise or navy blue (never better said) and up close are crystal clear; vegetation of palms, coconut palms, breadfruit trees and Bengal fig trees that kiss the sea and shade hibiscus and bougainvillea; a fauna made up of butterflies, huge fruit bats and small iguanas on land and sharks of different types and sizes, manta rays, curious napoleons, tuna, turtles and millions of small fish of infinite colours underwater. Is this not Paradise?
In this Paradise, as you can see, there are no snakes and apples to tempt man or woman, but there are other temptations in the form of spectacular resorts with villas, cottages and bungalows that balance on the sea or blend into the jungle, restaurants offering food and drink from every possible continent, infinity pools that blend into the ocean, land and sea sports... and the ever-present temptation of the ever-present temptation of the sea and land sports. ... and the ever-present temptation to rest and do nothing, to let time pass while the body is saturated with pleasant sensations. It is no coincidence that the Maldives has been recognised as the world's best destination for the third year in a row.
It is nothing new to compare the Maldives with Paradise. An old legend says that the invisible hand of some god took a little piece of Eden and sprinkled it on our planet, and it fell just right in the form of a garland of 1,200 islands in the Indian Ocean. Men called this archipelago the Maldives, and it is no coincidence that in Sanskrit the name means garland.
