Islands Gallery

Join me on a journey through some special islands: Seychelles, Mauritius, Maldives, Barbados & Mallorca.


When I was a teenager, there was a popular song which went something like “woah I’m going to Barbados, in the sunny Caribbean Sea“. That song really talked to me, ever since I have had an obsession with visiting that island. Eventually, circumstances made that dream become a possibility. Here are a few photos.

The Maldives is made up of 26 atolls, which together contain thousands of islands, some fairly large and urban, like the capital city Malé, and others tiny and uninhabited. But all of them stunningly beautiful, or so I'm told, I've only visited 2 of them, Kani Island and Kuredu.

The Balearic Islands, of which Mallorca is the largest, have been settled for centuries, including a period when the Romans were in charge. The Northern parts of the island, which we explored, are reached by crossing a pretty high range of mountains to reach the stunning coastline beyond, with pristine waters and beautiful little villages around every bend.

Mauritius is an increasingly popular holiday destination, and it’s not hard to understand why, a short 4 hour or so flight on Air Mauritius from Johannesburg and you’re in a completely different world. It's well developed with air links to pretty much every country in the world and the Capital Port Louis is a thoroughly modern city.

There are 115 islands in the Seychelles Archipelago, not all of them are inhabited. It's one of my favourite island destinations in the world, and you can see why. This gallery includes photos from the 3 main islands: Mahé, Praslinn and La Digue, if I am spared I certainly hope to visit more of them.
