Maldives Tourism Promotion Board together with the High Commission of Maldives in UK will be celebrating a Maldivian day on 15 August 2009. The week commencing from 14 August is marked as the Indian Ocean week at the Monarch Beach bringing the colors of the beach destinations like Maldives, Goa, Sri Lanka and Mauritius.

In addition to featuring the Maldivian culture at Monarch Beach, FasyLIVE currently based in UK will be performing at the centre. The Monarch Beach is the only city centre beach in the UK located at the Chamberlain Square; and covers 577 square metres and makes use of over 110 tonnes of sand. Sponsor, Monarch Airlines and their partner, 96.4 FM BRMB invites visitors to the beach to escape and sample the sights, sounds and tastes from the countries around the world in 80 days.

Free and opened daily to the Birmingham public and tourist visitors, this popular city centre beach is opened on Sunday to Thursday from 11am till 6pm and on Fridays and Saturday from 11am till 9pm which is thought to be a great family friendly attraction, and also provide an idyllic urban oasis for city centre workers and visitors to relax.

The main target of the Maldives Tourism Promotion Board would be to take the full advantage of this opportunity to reach these beach visitors to position the Maldives as a preferred tourist destination for the potential UK travellers by focusing awareness of the destination Maldives.
