Top 5 Things to Do on a Maldives Honeymoon

Updated on June 22, 2020

The lovely Maldives is a popular honeymoon destination and newlyweds will find many enjoyable things to do such as relaxing on the beach, snorkelling, island hopping and more.

Relax on the Beach

Without question, just relaxing on the beach is likely to be a significant part of your honeymoon in the Maldives. In fact, many honeymooners arrive in the Maldives with the primary intention of spending quality time with their loved one on the magically beautiful beaches of this island nation.

There can hardly be more attractive or picturesque beaches than those to be found here. The idyllic surroundings, powder-soft sands and the balmy tropical weather make the island beaches wonderful places at which to relax and unwind. The shimmering waters of the Indian Ocean will lap at your feet and the refreshing sea breezes will blow through your hair as you enjoy your Maldives honeymoon.

Romance will come naturally in the Maldives amidst the picture postcard-like scenery which will undoubtedly capture the imagination of honeymooners, especially at sunset. Your everyday cares and worries will melt away as you spend magical moments with your loved one on the alluring beaches.

Snorkelling and Diving

Going snorkelling together will be a great option for honeymooners. As you snorkel in the delightfully clear waters of the Maldives, you will have the opportunity to view the islands’ undersea attractions which include beautiful coral formations and many fascinating sea creatures.

Snorkelling will be an excellent choice on your Maldives honeymoon as it is a simple and uncomplicated activity that many visitors to the islands can enjoy. Since you do not have to venture far beneath the waters to experience its beauty and exotic denizens, snorkelling will be a rewarding activity in these islands.

On the other hand, if you and your partner are experienced divers, it will be possible for you to fully experience the undersea scenery of the Maldives; this includes seeing creatures like rays, sharks, eels, turtles and more. If you are not certified divers, you can still avail yourself of diving instruction and certification at local dive centres.

Taking a Ride on the Whale Submarine

Another wonderful experience for honeymooners in the Maldives would be taking a ride on the popular Whale Submarine. This submarine will take you to a hidden reef located 40 m underneath the surface of the water.

The submarine will descend into the waters and halt initially at a depth of 25 m. At this point, you will have the opportunity to view vibrantly coloured coral formations and various kinds of interesting reef fish. You may also meet an attractive school of yellow or blue-striped snappers in addition to turtles, yellow boxfish and lionfish.

When the submarine descends to 40 m it will usually come to rest at a secluded spot near a large cave. Here you will encounter a picturesque coral garden and in its environs, you may find creatures like Napoleons, reef sharks and giant groupers. This submarine ride will undoubtedly be a memorable experience for you and your loved one.

Island Hopping

Since the Maldives is an archipelago consisting of a multitude of small islands, you will have the chance to go island hopping here. An island-hopping trip will be a captivating experience for honeymooners as they will be able to visit a number of interesting islets that will draw their interest.

As you go island hopping, you will be able to visit one of the local inhabited islands where you will have the chance to gain a firsthand understanding of the distinctive local culture. You will have the opportunity to observe the local way of life which is likely to be very different from your own.

Another great choice for honeymooners would be to visit an uninhabited island where couples can enjoy pure seclusion. At certain Maldives resorts, honeymoon experiences include having a gourmet lunch on such a deserted island which makes these getaways even more unforgettable.

Take a Scenic Flight

A truly unforgettable part of your Maldives honeymoon would be to undertake a scenic flight that will enable you to gain a splendid bird’s eye view of the entrancing tropical archipelago. A scenic flight will be a memorable experience that you will always treasure as a cherished memory of your honeymoon in the islands.

You will be able to enjoy magnificent aerial views over the islands as you pass over uninhabited islets, picturesque lagoons and the villages of the local fishermen. You will also notice islands of coral, popular resorts and schools of large fish on your flight. As you soar over the expanses of the ocean, you will find that the colour of the sea appears to change which will be a magical sight.

A scenic flight will also provide you with the opportunity to take some attractive photographs of the spectacular scenery passing below you, which will serve as a splendid memento of your honeymoon in the Maldives.
