The Maldives In Photos

You are in for a treat today because Beth of Besudesu Abroad, the girl who is in love with Asia, will be sharing with us a truly special place that some of us dream of visiting – the extraordinary Maldives. Beth is a passionate traveller who always looks to connect with the places she visits is a genuine way. I look forward to meeting up with this girl once again in Hong Kong for a dim sum treat this year. Now let her transport you over to the Maldives. 

When the word paradise comes to mind, no country better embodies this word than the Maldives. Isolated in the Indian Ocean, the Maldives is made up of 26 atolls and almost 1,200 islands—only which 200 of are inhibited. The sheer amount of colors in the Maldives was amazing, only adding to the beauty of this pristine ocean paradise.

Luxurious overwater villas line the jetty along the bright blue shore
Luxurious overwater villas line the jetty along the bright blue shore
While the other side of the island witnessed fiery sunsets of pink and red
The nearby local island was shroud in a sunset of yellow hues as the locals continued fishing for that night’s meal
And the wildlife also seemed to enjoy the splashes of color around them
Arriving via seaplane, the Maldives from above is just as beautiful as on the ground with gradients of blue
Beaches had soft powdery white sand and we often had them to ourselves
Even the sunrises are unique in their own way with deep shades or purple and orange spreading across the sky
As low tide began at sunset, the water left ripples in the sand as though it was a pristinely manicured Zen garden
Each overwater villa has a private deck with access to the crystal-clear reef for snorkeling
Towards the end of our stay we even witnessed the most brilliant rainbow, helping to confirm our belief that the colors of the Maldives are some of the best in the world
The water is so clear it is easy to spot an assortment of colorful marine life, including these reef sharks that often visited our villa
As waves crashed on shore the shades of blue quickly turned white as they ran over the bright green algae
The view is a glorious seemingly never-ending stretch of blue
With sandbanks that go on for miles, they become a perfect spot for taking in the sunsets
When talking about colors in the Maldives, you have to mention the sunrises and sunsets as each are unique and beautiful in their own way
Shades of orange, blue and pink filled the sky nightly at the sandbank

Would you like to pay the Maldives a short visit in the future?

    Stunning photos! Have always wanted to visit the Maldives but have always assumed it would be far too expensive – do you know if it is possible to do it on a tight budget?

    What a beautiful collection! This is the epitome of paradise on earth. It’s on my top places to visit but it just seems so far away from CA. I feel relaxed just looking at these pictures. One of these days…Thanks for the inspiration in the meantime.

    Those PHOTOS! WOW! They make me want to find a boat and land on one of those uninhabited islands, set up camp and never leave. Simply stunning.

    Beautiful photos. Anything with palm trees and empty beaches makes me want to visit. That and the crystal clear waters.
