Sun Island Beach - Need to buy some milk? Leave the car keys, grab a snorkel.
Recognized in some polls as the world's best beach, this diamond in the middle of the Indian Ocean has become a favorite with celebs and rich honeymooners drawn by the thought of sleeping over the water, literally.
Nearby resorts offer luxury bungalows on stilts in the water, where you can be sent to sleep with the sound of real water lapping at your doorstep, not the fake kind from you iPhone app.
Nearby coral reefs attract thousands of tropical fish, snorkelers and divers.
But you don't even need to be a water baby to enjoy the scenery -- parts of the reef are visible from the beach, so clear is the water.
The Hilton Maldives Resort and Spa is located on Rangali and Rangalifinolhu Islands in the South Ari Atoll, 90 kilometers southwest of the capital city, Male. For more details visit www.mal-dives.com.
