A genuine island paradise, the Maldives is the stuff of a thousand adventure stories - but now the hidden treasures are exotic hideaways and exclusive resorts.
Covering 1,190 islands formed from coral reefs, the Republic of Maldives sits just north of the Equator, giving the country a truly tropical climate. Long the choice for those seeking an exclusive getaway, the Maldives offers one of the last genuine escapes with dozens of its world-class resorts only accessible by private boat.
Emirates flights to the Maldives land in Ibrahim Nasir International Airport, near Male itself - the capital and largest island of the Maldives. Emirates flies to Male 10 times a week, offering more ways than ever before to find your own island treasure.
