Maldives Islands With a Sea Wall
Maldives islands with a sea wall can be either 3* or 5*. The sea walls are there to prevent the erosion of the beach by the sea. For a few islands the wall surrounds them completely. For other Maldives islands with a sea wall the wall is only around a part of the island. Some of the walls are nicely done, to mix in with the nature of the islands, so you are almost not aware of them. The alternative to a sea wall is for the Maldives islands to use sandbags. These are placed strategically around the islands to prevent the sand on the beach eroding. Some guests think these are more unsightly than the sea walls.
Due to climate change and rising sea levels, more than half of the islands are eroding at an alarming rate. Malé was the first island to be surrounded by a wall. The wall reduced the vulnerability of Malé, which is a mile long and houses one third of the country’s population. Maldives Islands with a sea wall use them to protect the beaches, rather than people and housing. If as tourists we want to keep the Maldives and not see them destroyed by the ocean waves, then the sea walls are what we will have to put up with, in order to protect paradise.
