Beach Thursday Pic of the Week – Most Likely Maldives

Tagged: ,

Another white beach with towering palms and a glimpse of blue water was the leading vote getter in this week’s daily beach pics on my Facebook page. While the exact location remains unknown (someone guessed Isla Mujeres but the photographer takes most of her beach pics in the Maldives), one thing is for certain – we really want to be there. Some people prefer concrete jungles and others prefer mountains and their respective forests,...

If the Indian Ocean country of the Maldives had national colors beyond the red and green that dominate their flag, I would be tempted to guess that they would be blue and white. An archipelago nation consisting of 26 atolls which in turn contain more than 1000 coral islands, escaping the white sand and blue water is nearly impossible.

Beach Thursday Pic of the Week – A Maldives Escape

Tagged: ,

What can I say about the Maldives that I haven’t said multiple times on this blog before? Well, nothing, and as is typically the case, this image of an unknown beach in this Indian Ocean paradise was the most liked “beach pic of the day” post from the last week on my Facebook page. Maybe it’s the white sand or the blue water or the I-swear-they’re-swaying-palm trees that clinched it. Or maybe it’s just the fact that people really...
