Already selling consistently to all levels of the dive travel market, the dazzling Globetrotter Dive Guide: The Maldives now appears in a fully revised new edition for 2004. There are estimated to be over 3,000 dive sites in the Maldives, which remains one of the world's major diving destinations, renowned as much for the extraordinary natural beauty of its atoll formations as the quality of its diving. Despite the ravages of the 1998 El Nino phenomenon, the Maldives reefs have continued to thrive; where before-hand the focus was on stony corals, now divers of all nationalities come for the myriad fish life and breathtaking array of pelagic species, including awesome Manta Rays. For this new edition all coverage of the existing dive sites has been thoroughly updated, and the latest practical information is included in the regional directories.
