8 Fun Facts You Didn’t Know About the Maldives

Everyone knows what makes Maldives special but these amazing facts will make you love this tropical heaven more:

  1. Holiday Retreat for 50 Years: Although Maldives has been around for thousands of years, it is relatively a new tourist spot. Former President Maumoon Abdul Gayoom gave a huge boost to tourism in 2019 but it was a secret spot for surfers and divers before that until the first resort opened in 1972.
  2. Shells as Currency: Do you know Maldives didn’t have currency in the 19th century so they used the shells for trade? These cowrie shells are unique in shape, light in weight, and can’t be faked, which makes them an ideal money alternate.
  3. Population Density: Only 540,000 people live in Maldives which is around the same amount of Manchester residents. To give you a clearer idea, only 200 out of the 1,200 islands are populated.
  4. World’s Lowest Archipelago: The Maldives islands are only seven feet above sea level at the highest natural point, which makes them the lowest archipelago and country on Earth. It has a natural fence of coral reefs that protects it during monsoon season.
  5. Coral Beaches: What makes Maldives special and unique are the white sand beaches made from coral. Coraline beaches are rare and make up just 5% of the world’s beaches which makes Maldives a unique tropical heaven.
  6. Home to Whale Shark: Maldives is known for its amazing marine life the largest fish in the ocean i.e., the whale shark which can grow up to 20ft makes marine exploration exciting. Visitors don’t have to fear any ‘Jaws’ kind of situation, where the mighty shark created a havoc among a group of people. Rest assured, the whale sharks here just feed on planktons, and one can spot them in Hanifaru Bay, Rangali Island, and other specific spots.
  7. Undersea Cabinet Meeting: Yes! You read it right. Maldives President Nasheed held the first cabinet meeting at the sea bottom in 2009. He did it to call for attention and help over rising sea levels that would sink some of the coastal zones by 2100. The cabinet signed papers calling for cutting carbon emissions and they auctioned wetsuits of ministers to raise money for coral reef safety. 
  8. Long History: As we stated earlier, Maldives has an interesting history of around 3000 years. The existing data confirms people living there way back in 1500 BCE. Buddhists are believed to have inhabited the area before Arab traders started coming there to rest on their way to Asia. Many of them chose to stay there which led to Maldives accepting Islam by 1153 CE.
