Honeymoons in the Maldives

The Maldives is literally made of coral. Totalling an impressive 1,192 islands, the archipelago is spread across 26 coral atolls – ring-shaped coral reefs and sandbars – that provide some of the best snorkelling and diving in the world. The year-round warm waters teem with aquatic life, like brightly-coloured shoals of fish, turtles, whale sharks, and manta rays. Throughout the year, the Maldives’ waters are frequented by 10-12 species of dolphin and whale. When you go on romantic beach walks, you can expect pristine white-sand beaches, brushed by aquamarines lagoons. North Malé Atoll is home to the most developed islands, with great surf spots, lively towns and unbeatable diving. South Malé Atoll is made up of 30 islands in a stunning blue lagoon, while Faafu Atoll is mainly uninhabited, making it ideal for total peace and tranquillity. But Baa Atoll may just be the winner in the snorkelling category – it’s a protected UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. The northernmost atoll, Haa Alif, demonstrates the Maldives’ cultural side, with ancient shrines visited by local kings, and a fascinating Sufi museum. No two islands are the same, but they all come with luxury accommodation. With literally hundreds to choose from, it’s best to get insider advice from your Travelbag expert – we’ll help you choose the right atoll for you.

Why choose a Honeymoon in the Maldives?

The Maldives are famed for their unrivalled luxury and romance. Think couples’ spas for pampering, private dining spots, and intimate cultural entertainment shows. The classic, unique accommodation option is the fairy-tale water villa – a romantic nest set on stilts, surrounded by the blue ocean. Imagine waking up to the sound of water lapping around your villa, and starting the day by diving off your private sun deck into the crystal-clear Indian Ocean. Often equipped with hot tubs, rain showers and mini-bars, water bungalows are the perfect private setting honeymooning couples. You might not ever want to leave but, if you fancy a stroll on the beach, the overwater villas are linked to dry land by wooden walkways. There are, in fact, endless ways for newlyweds to have fun in the ocean and get active in the Maldives. Strap on a snorkel and discover underwater delights, or head out into the cyan-blue waters on a private yacht. Spend a morning paddling in a glass-bottomed kayak, or go on a sailing trip in a traditional dhoni – a small boat made of coconut palm timber. There’s even a water activity unique to the Maldives. A Seabob is a one-man water bobsleigh, that allows you to feel like you’re a dolphin – why not give it a go?

Things to do in the Maldives

See Incredible Coral

Life in the Maldives has always been inextricably linked to the ocean – not surprising, when you consider that the country has more sea than land. Historically, coral has played a huge part in the local way of life. It was once used as a building material for houses, a practice now outlawed in an effort to protect the corals. Although initially the material was reserved for precious buildings like tombs and temples, you can still see coral houses in the capital, Malé. The coralline beaches found throughout the Maldives archipelago are incredibly rare, making up only five per cent of the beaches worldwide. The parrot fish is largely to thank for the powder-white sand of the Maldives – just one fish can produce a ton of sand a year, made from undigested coral.

Fun Facts about the Maldives  

As if you needed any more reasons to go to the Maldives, here are some fun facts. Historical records say that the first kingdom was established in the Maldives by an exiled Indian prince, although the Maldivians claim to have a mixture of Indian, African, European and Arabian heritage. Even though the Maldives is one of the world's most geographically dispersed countries, it actually has the smallest population of any Asian country – it has the same population as Cardiff, spread across 200 islands. There are around 100 private islands and resorts, while another pristine 800 are uninhabited. The local language is Dhivehi, which is a relative of Sri Lanka’s language, Sinhalese. And finally, you’ll notice a cowry shell is on the coins here. That’s because these shells were once used as currency – there are millions of them in the Maldives. 

Discover the World’s Lowest Country

Since the Maldives can claim the Guinness World Record of being the lowest country in the world, with an average of just 1.5 metres above sea level, climate change is a highly relevant topic in the island nation. The world’s first underwater cabinet meeting was held here in 2009, to raise awareness of the environmental issues affecting the Maldives. The country is also famous for being one of the safest holiday destinations in the world, with a low crime rate and an adult literacy rate of 98 per cent. Skilled, seafaring people, the local captains of the ancient dhoni sailing boats use age-old navigation techniques to skilfully manoeuvre through reefs at night.
