This is an all-time favourite honeymoon destination for newlyweds around the globe. That’s mainly because of the tropical resort islands of the Maldives highlighting a combination of its all-natural attractions, good food, amazing underwater experiences and all the fun activities. If you are aiming at the best Maldives Honeymoon Packages, here are some amazing things to do in the Maldives as couples to enjoy your honeymoon there.
1.Private dinners in over-water bungalows
Fancy spending your honeymoon in an over-water bungalow where you can make romantic memories while white waves splash around? Then the Maldives is your ultimate honeymoon destination. Whether you are dreaming about a romantic candlelit private dinner in a villa or outside under a blanket of stars in a dining pavilion over the water, your experiences are going to be one of a kind. The Maldives is ideal to indulge in exemplary gourmet experiences, Soneva Fushi, Soneva Jani, Angsana Velavaru, are a few of the most beautiful overwater bungalows with an amazing cuisine to seduce your taste buds.
2.Sunset dolphin cruises
The sunset cruise is a popular couple activity in the Maldives. You will be cruising on a traditional Maldivian Dhoni or a boat in the evening which is the perfect time to spot loveable sea creatures such as dolphins.
Dolphins are super friendly and playful. It’s definitely a double deal for the nature-loving honeymooners to watch them while enjoying breathtaking sunsets. The Maldives ranks high among the top five places on the earth for watching whales & dolphins. Dolphins mostly show up when the weather is nice, and the best time to spot them is between January to April which is the dry season.
3.Picnics on a sandbank
Going on a private picnic to a sandbank is one of the fun couple things to do in the Maldives on your honeymoon. The Maldives is home to plenty of sandbanks – large and small. It’s not possible to reach these sandbanks on your own but most of the hotels will arrange a Maldivian style picnic at a sandbank for a private getaway where the waves reach the sparkling sands right under your feet. These are normally 3hr excursions from your hotel and you will be able to request your favourite wine, a delicious dinner or a tropical fruit platter to take with you.
4.Diving and fishing
Fishing is ideal if you wish to get more active and adventurous. The Maldives is home to ample varieties of fish and you can choose to fish at night or in the morning, both of these experiences are unique as your catch will differ depending on the time of day you fish.
Scuba diving is another fun activity to experience together. The hotel will provide you with diving gear if necessary. The Maldives is ideal for this sort of exercise as its waters are unbelievably deep and clear. The best times to dive are June and October, or December and March.
5.A couple of massages in the spa
For blissful relaxation, ticking off couple’s massages in a luxury spa on your honeymoon checklist is a must. Being pampered and massaged by expert therapists is a signature couple of things to do in the Maldives. There are “spas under the stars” operated by luxury hotels where you can lie on the beach and gaze at the starry sky at night while getting massaged. Other than getting you in the mood for more romantic moments with your partner, these massages will rejuvenate your skin and make you ready to fight the tropical weather on these sunny islands.
6.Cinema under the stars
Reclining under a starry sky whilst watching your favourite movie is an experience you will remember for years to come. You can join movie nights organized by hotels or enjoy the personal screening set up for a romantic, intimate experience just for the two of you. Imagine relishing a private dinner while enjoying a private screening on your very own sandbank under millions of stars. Whether it’s classics or Hollywood blockbusters this will surely be the most dreamlike cinema experience in your life.
No doubt that lip-smacking delicious food plays an influential role in picking a Maldives honeymoon experience.

If you enjoy cocktails, the bar team at Hotel Velingandu offers a demonstration of how to make two different cocktails and you will be able to enjoy the cocktail you made on a private sandbank gazing at the sunset.
8.Getting involved in marine conservation
As travellers around the globe get more conscious about the environment, getting involved in marine conservation is a perfect couple activity on your Maldives honeymoon. Nautilus Maldives is the ideal hotel to participate in this as it is surrounded by the world-famous Baa Atoll, a beautiful coral reef classed as a UNESCO biosphere reserve.
Nautilus Maldives has a coral adoption program where they invite guests to gather tiny corals which are broken due to heavy waves and reattach them to the coral frames to regrow. The hotel has made it a very personal experience for guests so you can “adopt” the coral frame you fixed and the property will let you monitor your coral’s growth via images. This will be a living souvenir from your best vacation ever spent in the Maldives.
