If you have chosen the exotic Maldives for your honeymoon destination, you won't be sorry. With their white sandy beaches and exquisite foods, it will be love at first sight. Finding activities and memorable locales will be easy. The one thing that will be hard to find is the desire to leave.
Take a Dive
The jewel-toned waters surrounding the Maldives are home to more than 3,000 coral reefs. With your partner by your side, you can explore the lively ocean floor teeming with colourful sea creatures. With varying sites perfect for beginners to the more advanced divers, Maldives' best diving locations include the islands of Lhaviyani, Vaavu and Gaafu. If you want to mingle with some manta rays, Manta Point offers a unique and exciting diving experience. At the Bluetribe Moofushi diving centre, you can engage in various water sports such as kayaking and windsurfing.
Experience Fine Dining
Experience the tastes of the islands with top-rated restaurants featuring cuisines such as seafood and Thai. For a once-in-a-lifetime experience, visit Ithaa, an undersea restaurant located on Rangali island where the stunning views rival the food. For a more cozy, relaxed setting, try the Jazz Cafe in Malé. If you find yourselves near Kandooma, enjoy sunset views and Asian-inspired dishes at The Kitchen restaurant.
Part of the Maldive Islands' intrigue is due to its rich history that dates back to the 12th century. To see ancient artefacts and weaponry, visit the National Museum in the capital city of Malé. On Kudahuvadhoo Island, you'll find ancient mounds and ruins that offer hours of exploratory fun.
Visit a Spa
The extraordinary spa programs on the Maldives Islands are truly an indulgence. Virtually every resort hosts a spa, and the massages are inspired by the traditional healing practices of the native hakeembe, or healing experts. While treatments vary by spa, you can find one that suits you, whether it is a sand massage or one using the gandhakolhi leaf, which is a Maldivian favourite.
Without a doubt, Maldives is known for their beautiful beaches and pristine waters. With 1,190 islands comprising 26 rings, there is certainly no shortage of islands to enjoy. For gorgeous scenery and first-class shopping, visit the Naifuru island. Situated in the southern region of the Maldives, Thinadhoo beaches are perfect for lounging. With greenery as far as the eye can see, there are plenty of shady oases where you can rest and relax. To sample the delicious tastes of locally grown fruits and vegetables, head to Fuamulaku.
From oceanic adventures to fine dining and picturesque beaches, the Maldives will make your honeymoon one you will never forget. After a relaxing getaway in the Maldives, you may just decide it should be the home of your anniversary celebrations as well.
