Maldives on Google Maps.
The underwater world of the Maldivian coral atolls never ceases to amaze those who are lucky enough to visit it. If you also have time to observe it up close, you will discover forms and colors completely unexpected and fantastic forms. Soft corals that look like lace, hard corals that look like mazes designed by ingenious architects, camouflage designs on the skin used to confuse prey and predators. A world of signs, lines, circles, colors and shades that leave the divers who visit coral reefs, not only in the Maldives but in all the submerged part of our beautiful planet, astonished and fascinated.
