My wife and I have been hoping/planning/meaning to go to
the Maldives for the past few years, but as 2011 is our 10th
wedding anniversay, and with prices going through the roof,
we have decided that it's now or never...
The problem is that we are non-swimmers, so we are not
bothered about snorkeling/diving/house reefs, etc.
I know that should make choosing a resort much easier,
but we have become obsessed with finding an island with
a 'classic' shallow, sandy lagoon. I know some of you
complain about having to paddle/wade out for half a mile
to get to the reef and/or deep water, but that is exactly
what we are looking for!!
However, I understand that studying pictures of resorts in
brochures/official websites is pointless, as the depth of
lagoons/beaches can change from year to year due to erosion,
so does anyone have any up to date info on the most 'paddling
friendly' islands which have beachfront villas* with an in room
*or even water villas which are above shallow, sandy water,
rather than a reef?
