Experiencing a sunset in the Maldives
I'm turning a corner as I wander from one end of this small island to the other and stop dead in my tracks. What I'm looking at has to be one of the most stunning sunsets I've ever laid eyes on. The calm, vast ocean shimmers in front of me, the sky is like a canvas on which an artist has painted bold, dramatic brush strokes. As the sun disappears into the horizon, it fights to shine its last bit of brilliant light through the clouds and drenches the boats by the pier in a swath of orange. These are the kind of sunsets I experienced in the Maldives. Time indeed seems to stand still, and there is naught to do but swim, read, sleep, eat and contemplate and be thankful. I stayed at the One and Only Kanuhura resort on the Kanuhura island upon a friend's recommendation. I didn't regret it. This was the only resort on the island. You can walk the island in 30 minutes end to end. On one side of the island you can snorkel while on the other side you can laze in calm waters. You can wade way out into the water and still be only waist deep on this side pictured. If you search for the One and Only Kanuhura, the name has changed under the hands of different management but the island is still spectacular.
