This is one of my favorite pictures in the Maldives. This little uninhabited island had a small pavilion on it where we burned a huge amount of trash. We brought our garbage ashore and burned it and then gathered hundreds of plastic water bottles that had been discarded on the island by day visitors from a nearby resort island. Such a shame they still litter with so much.
A reefy bit in the middle of an atoll crossing, These shallow coral and sand spots showed up ok when the light was right, but if it wasn't, you could easily not see these and run aground. We only traveled in good light so we didn't make a lot of progress each day.
The sand on the other side of the island was so soft, you can see my deep footprints from where I sank in.
