►More information:

The Maldives is a small country in South Asia, located in the Arabian Sea of the Indian Ocean. It lies southwest of Sri Lanka and India, about 1,000 kilometres from the Asian continent. The chain of 26 atolls stretches from Ihavandhippolhu Atoll in the north to Addu Atoll in the south. Comprising a territory spanning roughly 298 square kilometres with around 427,756 inhabitants. Malé is the capital and the most populated city.

The Maldives archipelago has an average ground-level elevation of 1.5 metres above sea level, it is the world's lowest country, with even its highest natural point being one of the lowest in the world, at 5.1 metres . Due to the consequent risks posed by rising sea levels, the government pledged in 2009 to make the Maldives a carbon-neutral country by 2019.

Islam was introduced to the Maldivian archipelago in the 12th century, developing strong commercial and cultural ties with Asia and Africa. From the mid-16th-century, the region came under the increasing influence of European colonial powers, with the Maldives becoming a British protectorate in 1887. Independence from the United Kingdom was granted in 1965 and a presidential republic was established in 1968.

The Maldives is also a member of the United Nations. Fishing has historically been the dominant economic activity, and remains the largest sector by far, followed by the rapidly growing tourism industry. Maldives is rated high on the Human Development Index.

The Maldives was a member of the Commonwealth from July 1982 until its withdrawal from the organisation in October 2016.

Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, we got married June 2013 and quickly caught the travel bug! We started “travel hacking” and taking more trips together and finally decided we wanted to travel for one year. After 2 years of saving $ and travel hacking over 2 million miles and points, we sold our cars and apartment and left home January 10, 2016. We started this YouTube channel to share our experiences with friends and family, then decided we really liked vlogging and traveling. So we extended our 1 year trip to THREE years :) Now we have a goal of traveling to 100 countries before Nate turns 30 (which is March 20, 2019)! We are incredibly thankful to do something we love every day. :)


In August 2019 we, as in @Connor Trimble and @TaylorDitty spent 13 days on a live aboard boat traveling all around the Maldives. We went to various atolls, islands, tons of surf spots, sand bars and free diving spots. After having such an amazing trip we felt like it'd be beneficial to make a travel guide for our epic trip to the Maldives! Hopefully our experience can help you in planning your trip and if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to put it in the comments section below and we'll try to answer ASAP! Also, please LIKE, SUBSCRIBE and SHARE this video! It really helps my channel and I'll be posting videos soon from Shanghai, San Francisco, the Big Island in Hawaii, Kauai, Oahu, and Tulum.
