The coral is dead from el nino. But there are lots of variety of colorful fish. And of course seeing the turtle swim right underneath me on the last day was a site to see!
The Maldives are spectacular and so are the prices. The islands are small (ten minutes to walk around ours) and the elevation gain: seven feet. So as you can imagine it's hard to get much exercise. Luckily the tsunami a few years back didn't hit hard or they would have been wiped out completely.
With global warming the Maldives are endangered so we are so glad to have been able to experience them now. So close, but so expensive. Who knows if we'll ever make it back again?
