The Maldives offers some of the finest beaches and crystal clear waters you will find and boasts some of the best diving opportunities in the world. Due to the geographical nature of the Maldives, there is a lack of natural resources which means that almost everything has to be imported. This can mean that certain items are expensive when compared to home.
