Goifulhafehendhu and Malé Atolls
This pair of images from Flickr user sleepychinchilla shows the coral reefs and resort islands of the Maldives. The first image comes from the Goifulhafehendhu Atoll in the northwestern part of the country, and shows small sandbars and coral reefs just south of the island of Innafushi.
The next image shows the islands at the northern end of the South Malé Atoll. The photo looks southeast across the atoll. In the foreground is the island of Enboodhoofinolhu, home of the Taj Exotica resort. Above and to the left of Enboodhoofinolhu is the island of Enboodhoo, where the Embudu Village resort is located.
