Here is a practice from Cambridge IELTS 9 Test 1 (IELTS Writing Academic Task1 Map)
The two maps below show an island, before and after the construction of some tourist facilities.
Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.
Write at least 150 words
Here is my sample answer:
The first map shows the island before construction and the second illustrates the same island after development as a tourist site.
It is clear that after the construction, people are able to access the island by boats, other tourist facilities emerge such as reception, restaurant and accommodation for the influx. On the other hand, all the coconut palm trees are preserved.
As can be seen from the new island, a wharf has been built on the southern coastal line. Sailing boats create gateways to the site, whilst the pier is connected with a newly built reception to its north via the vehicle track. And behind the reception, you could find an adjoining restaurant to cater for the needs.
On either side of the reception centre the accommodation areas are located. To be more specific, there are 6 holiday resorts to the west and 9 to the east and are all linked via footpath. Navigating the footpath to the west coast, the visitor is met with ample swimming space.
