Turn off the BlackBerry, shut down the laptop and get ready for a much-needed break from reality with our flights to the Maldives.
Book a flight to the Maldives and discover the art of doing nothing. A staggering 1,200 islands make up this place, although most of them are nothing more than a mound of sand pricked with a palm or two. The ones that are inhabited, though, are every inch the tropical island fantasy. The sand here is impossibly white and the ocean so blue it looks like it’s been digitally enhanced. The underwater world is just as brightly coloured, thanks to reefs teeming with fish, rays and turtles. No wonder the Maldives regularly score awards for being a top holiday destination.
