Maldives from above: turquoise pearls floating on the deep blue ocean

Seeing Maldives from the air is like being enchanted. I had the privilege to live this stunning experience on our way to and from Filitheyo island resort - a 35 minutes flight from the capital Male'. As the sea plane flies low, islands, lagoons and reefs meet the eye, scattered over the ocean. A heavenly canvas, delight to the sight.
