One of my favourite days from our honeymoon in the Maldives involved sailing. We took out one of the resorts Catamaran’s for a couple of hours and sailed around our island (Cocoa Island). To see my island tour click here. There was the perfect breeze on this day which let us sail all the way around (we spent around two hours slowly circling the island). Luckily my hubby was quite good at operating the sails, so I mainly got to sit back, lounging and enjoying the superb island views.
These photos say it all but how divine is the light blue water here! The Maldives is honestly a treasure – nothing is better than appreciating the world’s natural beauty. The water was at times so clear you could see in detail the coral world beneath us. We also spotted a few fish and darting turtles and stingrays not far from our catamaran.

It was a bit tricky getting past the northern side of the island as a sandbar had emerged at low tide. We had to travel a little further north in order to pass it. We tried to go over it just when the water was covering the tip of the sandbar.
Needless to say our catamaran got stuck so we hopped off it and started enjoying our private strip of the beach. Arden spotted baby sharks and sting rays around us and attempted to capture photos of them on the GoPro. Boy they were fast little creatures!
Hope you enjoy our photographs. And I hope you get to experience Maldives paradise for yourself one day!
