I like to share information that makes life more joyful and meaningful. My main interests are health and general wellness in body and mind.

Fascinating Fiji

 Fiji is an island nation in the South Pacific Ocean.  The country occupies a group of 322 islands.  The two major islands are Viti Levu and Vanua Levu.

However, the most pristine island is the third largest, called the "Flower Island" Taveuni.  This island is a tourist haven with hidden lakes and waterfalls, and of course the clean white sandy beaches.

The popular resort stay will be at the Maravu Plantation Resort which is tucked away in an area of 90 acres of coconut groves and lush tropical rainforest, home to a myriad of birds .  And of course, the inviting white sandy beaches.

Marvelous Maldives

The Maldives archipelago lies across the equator in the Indian Ocean, about 500 km from Sri Lanka.   It has a small population of 250,000 over a thousand islands spread across this small island nation.  However only 185 islands are inhabited.   

The whole area is vastly low lying which gives the Maldives the record holder for the lowest country in the world, with the "highest" level at a mere 2.3 meters or 7 1/2 feet, with the average of 1.5 meters above sea level. 

 

As can be expected, tourism is the country's main "business".  There are 89 resorts to choose from. The most famous is the Kurumba Village (5-star hotel)

 

The islands are of pure white coral sand, with spectacular white sandy beaches.
