Take in the world’s tropical paradises from a different perspective
For travellers who have admired islands and beaches from our plane windows, we’d be hard pressed to be able to capture a truly beautiful birds-eye shot that isn’t obstructed by the pesky airplane wing.
While we entertain the thought of buying and packing a drone with us on our beach vacations, we’re perfectly happy to stare at these stunning photographs of beaches around the world, taken in oddly satisfying composition and symmetry.

1. Adriatic Riviera, Italy
Captured by Bernhard Lang, a Munich-based photographer, who was enraptured by the Italian coastline of the Adriatic Sea, where the seaside resorts sported coloured umbrellas that were perfectly laid out.
Lang is known for his aerial photography, which has captured the beauty of unlikely places like car parks, container ports and even open coal mines.
