Male: the world's smallest capital.
A coral reef from the air. Note that none of this is above sea level - you are looking down through several meters of crystal-clear sea to the reef.
Athuruga island as seen through the seaplane window (please excuse the dried on salt obscuring the image).
After touching down on the lagoon next to the island, our Twin Otter ties up next to the pontoon to unload passengers and cargo.

Beach on Athuruga - note the mobile phone mast !
