The Maldivian archipelago comprises of 26 natural coral atolls – a chain of islands formed from coral reefs, that grew around a submerged volcanic mountain. The country is home to 300,000 people who live on 192 islands. Most of the remaining islands are left untouched for the ecosystem to flourish. Close to 100 islands have been transformed into tourism hubs that form the backbone of the Maldivian economy. Until the 1970s, the Maldives was relatively unknown to the world. With the tourism boom on island resorts, the Maldives has become the tropical paradise for holidaymakers.
