Though pictures like this look amazing, the real picture on the ground jumps at you with littered hostility. Villingili in recent years have become the fifth ward of Male’ and has the only natural beaches left in the capital. Thousands of people each week come over to Villingili to swim and relax, not because they have much choice. Regardless of the fact that much work needs to be done to maintain, conserve and beautify the natural environment of Villingili, the residents of Villingili and Male’ are lucky that there are three small stretches of natural beach left on the Capital of Maldives. It should be a dear cause to all of us to preserve such an integral part of our ecosystem and environment that has paved the way of life for us Maldivians.
