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.

No colourful or neatly arranged beach brollies here – photographer Sven Zacek shows sunbathers basking without shade. Zacek’s works have been published in National Geographic, The Observer and The Independent, and his portfolio mostly spans wildlife and landscapes.
