Maldives is known for its transparent blue water and white sand beaches with ideal climate for swimming, especially with luxury overwater bungalows that allows you to sink into the warm water from the front door.
One of the biggest reason to visit Maldives as soon as possible, apart from its beauty is the rising sea level. It could possibly be drowned by 2100.
