The Maldives are often called the Pearls of the Indian Ocean. This tiny country consists of numerous coral reef islands and is situated on the equator, in the South West of Sri Lanka. Small coral islands, 1,190 in total, form an archipelago of 26 major atolls. Only 200 islands are inhabited. Male is the capital of the Maldives.

The climate of the Maldives is generally warm and humid. Sun shines all year. The average temperature is around 29 - 32 degrees Celsius. Lagoons with turquoise crystal water provide good conditions for windsurfing.
