A Sandbank Picnic

For those seeking a different kind of quick getaway in the Maldives, your own private sandbank awaits. In addition to the atolls, many of the islands that surround the Maldives consist of pure and powdery sand embraced by a lagoon or a reef known as sandbanks, or baby islands. It’s a hide and seek game as some of the sandbanks get entirely submerged at high tide and appear only at low tide.

These new islands materialise every day and it’s enough reason to leave your stretch of beach at your resort in the Maldives for a private spot on a nearby sandbank surrounded by nothing but aquamarine waters. Unique picnics are easily arranged by resorts since most of the sandbanks are within easy reach. Bring sun protection and pop up an umbrella for your spectacular picnic on the sandbanks.
