I’ve always loved beach holidays – the sun, sand and afternoon naps.
And the Maldives have always been one of those places where you think “wouldn’t that be nice” bug would probably never happen.
I had set the expectation pretty high. Tahiti, where we visited about ten years ago, have since been my favourite holiday destination of all time.
I think I’ve got a new number one. The place is amazing. Our first stop is Finolhu.
We flew in on a seaplane, flying over countless islands and resorts below.
The resort / attol is picture perfect, the view from our over-water bungalow was divine.
We even had a look at some of the other rooms, including an awesome two bedroom bungalow with a plunge pool.
The island is funky, with fire breathers and acrobats.
And the food – perfect!
A once in a lifetime location.
