Acting managing director of Maldives Marketing & Public Relations Corporation Mohamed Adam said the country has a lot of watersports for people to take part in.
These include boat trips, scuba diving excursions, kite-surfing, water or jet-skiing, snorkelling, cataramaning, parasailing and kayaking, he added.
Furthermore, the waters surrounding the island contain over 300 species of tropical fish, the specialist continued.
Mr Adam said: "The colour and beauty found beneath the waves is a sight to behold."
He also described the "palm tree-lined beaches" and "award-winning spa experiences" as some of the highlights of the country.
According to the US Central Intelligence Agency's World Factbook, the country plays a leading role in climate change discussions due to its susceptibility to rising sea levels.
It also promotes regional cooperation, particularly between the nations of Pakistan and India.
While most government officials will be able to speak English, the national language is an Arabic-influenced tongue called Dhivehi.
