Subject: RE: islands in the sun - Maldives
The multi-island nation of The Maldives gets my vote. We were there in the fall of 1998 and it was like something out of a dream. The sand is as white as the pictures promise (we kicked our shoes off when we arrived and didn't put them on until we had to leave 3 days later), the water as clear as you'll ever see it, and the beauty of the sea life spectacular. Definitely a South Pacific paradise!
