The Maldives are 3 things:

1) Beautiful
2) Expensive
3) Beautiful

Every island a paradise, every hotel on a paradise island and every need catered for. The physical beauty is unmatched in the world. The only way you are going to see it though is by Seaplane. Do not be tempted to save $100 by transferring to your Love Island by boat. It would be like going to an Art Museum with a blindfold on. The highest point is 15 feet above sea level. To see hundreds of islands and the coral reefs you have to fly.

Once you have landed on the beach look for the Western White Whale (tip below) and enjoy an ice cold beer from the bar overlooking your temporary paradise. And expect to pay big money.

    beautiful! always wanted to visit here and your photos are stunning. would love to do the aerial view over all that stunningness! Met Toni of the Maldives the other day - she is 83 and still dives there, lived there as unofficial high commissioner for past 35 years or something very interesting and inspiring - just like your page thanks!

    I have looked at your pages before-but now the daughter and new son are there on honeymoon, so thought I would read the pages again. You have done an excellent job of describing the sites and the pictures are fabulous

    Nice photos! It is a pity it is so expensive, as it looks a lovely area to visit, I just hope nobody has a "Steve Irwin" experience with the Rays!
