Top Attractions in the Maldives

Flag of the Republic of Maldives

First visit: September 2013
Places visited: Malé Island, Villamendhoo Island

A lot of people describe the Maldives as the "Paradise on Earth" and after spending a week at the Villamendhoo Island Resort, I would have to agree with them. White sand beaches, torquoise lagoon and beautiful coral reefs ... what more could you ask for? Here are some of the pictures we took during our trip to this island paradise in 2013. Enjoy!
