At one time the Maldives, a collection of islands in the Indian Ocean had plenty of coconuts to use in exchange for spices and silks. Then along came tourism and things got better with the economy. The Sails Bar is a repurposed coconut grove and is now part of a resort known as Baros.
If you have had a dream of a tropical vacation then this is the place for you. It is a most romantic place where you feel like you have stepped into paradise and the world has just disappeared. Guests can have their drinks served in coconut shells and guys can just lay back on day beds and smoke cigars. The shade is provided by palm trees. For entertainment, as you lounge, you can watch professional “climbers” climb up the coconut palms to remove coconuts before they come down on your head.

Looks wonderful, I’d love to be at the beach right now.
This place looks magical to spend a vacation.
Tee shade sounds relaxing to me.
The Maldives was going to be my Peace Corp assignment. The last coup made the Peace Corp pull out, and I ended up taking a regular teaching job instead.
Yeah , good tourist attraction point for couple
Coconuts are native to where I live and I also have a few trees in our own property.
How interesting Grace to have your own coconut trees I have only had apple and pear trees.
That looks like a great and romantic vacation spot!
