Tuvalu, the Marshall Islands, Kiribati and the Maldives are real paradise islands, and spending a vacation is a dream of many people. Unfortunately, getting there is a real challenge and is associated with high costs. An additional problem is the fact that due to climate change many of these areas may soon disappear from the world map.
“Many tropical islands, especially those that form atolls like the Maldives, are highly vulnerable to marine activity. Island states and coastal areas are the most vulnerable to sea level rise. They will slowly disappear as climate changes. as they continue, ”says Dr. Justyna Orłowska, researcher of social issues of climate change, member of the Climate Crisis Team at the President of the Polish Academy of Sciences.

One of the holiday paradises that could disappear from the face of the Earth is the Maldives. Until recently, this island country in the Indian Ocean was associated with the holidays of Croesuses and famous people. The prices of flights and accommodation were very high, so few people could afford a vacation in this part of the world.

Why is this country worth visiting? Its pools, where we can find crystal clear water, deserve special attention.
