Maldives is the flattest country in the world with land no higher than 2.4 meters above the sea level. Water constitutes 99% of its area totalling 90,000 sq km. This archipelago of 26 major atolls stretches 820 km (north-south) and 120 km (east-west). An atoll is a group of coral islands made of reefs and girdled by lagoons. Out of 1,190 islands, 202 are inhabited while 90 are exclusive resort islands.
Malé is the capital of Maldives. A city of high-rise buildings and paved roads, Malé is one of the smallest capitals in the world in terms of physical size. Its main streets are lined with a variety of shops and offices. With many multi-storied structures and housing complexes at the core, Malé nonetheless presents a largely green and refreshing ambience.
