Where In The World?

Where is the Maldives?

In the Indian Ocean, southwest of India and Sri Lanka. The Republic of the Maldives is an archipelago of about 1,190 coral islands southwest of India’s southern tip, some 670 km (416 miles) southwest of Sri Lanka. The islands are strung out in a chain, stretching 822 km (510 miles) from north to south across the Equator, and 130 km (80 miles) at the widest from west to east. Only 200 of them are inhabited with nearly 100 of the uninhabited islands turned into tourist resorts.

The total land area, if all the islands were one landmass, would amount to 298 square kilometres (115 square miles), about half the size of Singapore. In actual fact 99.9% of the Republic is sea. The islands are grouped in 26 natural atolls, ring-like coral formations enclosing a massive central lagoon, which gives the Maldives its distinctive paradise-isles appearance.
