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.

Belgian photographer Antoine Rose, who is also known for his aerial photography, captured pastel-coloured snapshots of Miami’s beaches while being strapped onto the outside of a helicopter, “300 feet above the earth at 20 knots”, he writes on his website. Talk about going to lengths for the perfect shot!
