The Maldives resorts map and detailed information below illustrate the exact location of the Maldives on the globe. The local islands, hotels, and airports are then displayed on the Maldives map. The Maldives is a group of 1192 islands in the Indian Ocean, southwest of Sri Lanka and India. Since the islands are so small, Maldives is not seen on many maps of the world.
With a population of about 564,000, it is an independent nation. The Maldives is a participant in a number of international organisations, including the Commonwealth, the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC), and the United Nations (UN). Tourism, fishing, and construction are three major economic activities. 99% of household products are imported, and the economy primarily depends on foreign money made from tourists. Rufiyaa is the name of the local money, but the US Dollar is extensively used everywhere.
