The Maldives islands are home to some of the very best scuba diving in the world. Even if you’re not a diver, snorkelling in the warm waters offers wonderful opportunities to spot a wide variety of marine life. Some resorts have their own diving schools, whilst others have their own reefs and you may even see whale sharks.
Abu Dhabi is the largest of the seven emirates and in little more than 50 years has expanded from a tiny fishing village to the beguiling mix of urban architecture and development that we see today. Futuristic architecture stands alongside magnificent mosques, whilst the sea sparkles next to spectacular dunes and mountains on the other side.
Accommodation ranges from luxury 5* resorts to bedoin camps. Watersports and waterparks abound; thrill-seekers will love the adventure parks; golf courses are always on hand. Cruises are possible along the coast, should you choose to discover the entire region.
