I was so disapointed in the Maldives: all coral is gone! We had one dive site where there was a bit of soft coral but for the rest...There are lots of fish, yes, and on the Raa Atoll we always have mantas, the whole year through but for the rest... Been there, done it, but I don't think I will ever go back.
It was also kinda boring being on a resort island. You can not go anywhere else and all is really expensive. The Maldives are so overrated!
On the other hand: I never have been in the Seychelles.
