The Ministry of Fisheries and Tourism has launched a website which details the atolls and islands of the Maldives in a bid to list the atolls and reef formations in one handy area.
For the first time, this is a resource which shows the make-up of the various atolls representative of this achipelaego of more than 1,200 islands!
It shows basic information about the atolls and various types of islands within, including their approximate location, nearest airports and other vital information which will be invaluable to travelling backpackers. Any self-respecting backpacker will not be without consulting this vital resource before heading off.
