16 Pictures of the Maldives That Are (nearly) As Good As Being There

    January 29, 2021Tom Spruce

    These escapism inducing pictures of the Maldives are everything right now.  

    Lockdown’s lingering

    Okay, so Boris Johnson has recently confirmed the unthinkable… we’re facing some more time ensconced in the home office.  

    That’s right, lockdown in the UK seems to be sticking around like the proverbial fart in a lift. 

    Which means the warm, gentle lapping of the Indian Ocean and the faint whiff of coconut scented sun cream is still a little bit away.  


    It’s not all bad

    However, we think we’ve come up with the perfect solution to these travel woes by putting together a collection of incredible pictures of the Maldives for you to swoon over.  

    Although, we haven’t collated these shots to drive you closer to the edge and leave you huddled in the corner cryinghugging a half-empty bottle of wine 

    No, we want you to embrace these snazzy snaps with a sense of how good it’s going to feel getting back out there again.

    So, get some packet cocktails on ice, run a warm bath and stick your swimming cozzy on. Get scrolling through these stunning pictures of the Maldives and, if you do it right, you’ll feel like you’re back unwinding on the atolls again. Don’t worry, it won’t be long until we’re there again IRL.
