Honeymoon in the Maldives
When someone says honeymoon, I instantly think the Maldives. I think that’s because, since being young I have always dreamt of a honeymoon in the Maldives. Unlike reality, which was a week in Devon (which was wonderful by the way).
The Maldives are a collection of more than a thousand coral islands. The main island of Malé is home to a busy fishing market, lots of restaurants, shops and the airport for the islands. The Maldives are famous for their beautiful beaches, blue lagoons and stunning coral reefs.
Many private islands are covered in beautiful white sand and surrounded by the clear blue ocean. Lots of the islands have their own coral reef. So there are plenty of amazing diving and snorkelling opportunities to be had. With their own personal reef, you don’t have to swim out far to find yourself submerged with marine life. Some of the best in the world.
There are so many styles of accommodation to choose from. All-inclusive hotel resorts, with every kind of facility you could ever want. Exclusive pool villas, set within resorts so you have access to hotel facilities. Tiny boutique hideaways. Garden Villas set in the stunning gardens of the resorts. Beach side bungalows, where you can step out of your bungalow straight onto the beautiful sand, and of course the amazing over-the-water bungalows, set out in the lagoons.
Top things to do in Maldives
I’m sure that when people think of the Maldives, they think about drinking cocktails on the beach, and jumping into the sea for a swim whenever the mood takes them. However there are so many other things to do while in the Maldives. I have put together a list of ‘musts’ while you’re there.
- The Ithaa Undersea Restaurant – off the Island of Rangalifinolhu.
