Romantic things to do in the Maldives for couples are endless. So, you can easily get overwhelmed by the too many options available when planning your Maldives honeymoon tour. But not to worry. Stick with us as and we’ll guide you through the top 10 must-try things to do in your Maldives honeymoon.
01. Venture through the Skies
If the two of you want to have a glimpse of the whole of the Maldives in one trip, then there’s no better way than taking it to the skies! With islands scattered all over the pearl blue Indian Ocean, this is your best bet of having a wide aerial view. You could see the different islands, each varying in their size, population, landscape and, of course, seascape.
Changing your island of choice is just a matter of taking one seaplane ride around the vicinity. With the seaplane terminal a mere five minutes of travel away from your arrival at the Maldives airport, there’s no reason why you should miss out on a soothing ride with the world’s largest seaplane fleet.
02. Sails ft. Boat Rides
If you want a good break from air travel, then you can always opt-out by travelling above the Maldivian waters instead. This is one of the must-try activities in the Maldives during your honeymoon. The experience gives a much more up-close and personal look with the beautiful coasts, islands and beaches with colours well beyond fifty shades of blue. Water transport is the normal mode of transportation in the Maldives, so hooking up with a tour guide and having a good sight-seeing adventure of the country on a boat can be done with utmost ease.
03. Sink with Subs
If you want to travel into greater depths instead, then boy, do we have good news. Fasten each other’s sea-belts and let the locals bring the aquarium to the comfort of your own viewpoint. Dive into the depths of the Indian Ocean with passenger submarines – one of the few places in the world that offers such luxury rides. You’ll be astounded by the variety of sea-creatures that swarm below the calm blue waters. The variety of flora and fauna beneath the ocean waters is a must witness feat for all couples touring the Maldives.
04. Settle in a Luxury Resort or Cabin
The Maldives never fails to cater to honeymoon goers. Whether it’s the mainland’s populated and affordable city resorts that are in demand or the barren reef-side luxury sea cabins (or even both of them to keep switching the experience during your stay), there’s plenty of local services you can choose from depending on the resort of choice. And with all of them, you’ll still enjoy the liberty to embrace the time you have for yourselves – doing nothing. Spa and wellness sessions, underwater dining experiences…it’s a diverse list. The ultimate honeymoon experience for any couple lies within the private luxury deckhouses they settle in for. So why not pamper, cozy in and cuddle up in this flamboyant privacy prioritized destination for two?
05. Indulge in a variety of Ocean Sports
Time to take to the oceans again for some couple-filled fun. Grab onto a giant kite alongside your dear, and get ready to enjoy the ocean breeze as you are towed above the seas with a speedy motorboat. As exciting as parasailing sounds, you can tone down with much calmer activities such as surfing or go even more chilled with stand-up paddleboarding over the undisturbed ocean waters. If you’ve never tried these activities before, it’s your best chance yet. With lessons you can take on the go, it would be great that the two of you could now share your newly acquired skills when it’s time to go back home.
06. Dive Into the Waters
This is one of the must-try things to do in the Maldives for couples when you are in for a couple adventures. With all the beautiful water bodies around you, there are too many dives you are to take during your stay. Whether it’s for a calm and aimless swim or for means of exploration, scamper with your snorkelling gear to get a calming view of the ocean floor. Enjoy the view of the beautiful corals and small reef fish, each swimming in a world of their own – just like the couple checking them out. Dive into the greater abyss of the sea, home to a wide variety of marine life, with some quality scuba diving. We’re pretty sure you’ll enjoy the company of the sea turtles and reef sharks alike.
07. Explore Uninhabited Islands on Foot
As the evening begins to take its toll, the best you can do is aimlessly stroll. Have that sweet talk going on as the two of you explore mini-islands with little to absolutely no occupants. Walk through the thick wilderness, maybe try out some fishing; there’s no end to the subtle activities you could engage in. Let’s not give away too many details here and spoil the fun. The cherished memories for adventure-seeking couples are endless when left desolated on an island, so go ahead and make your own beautiful story!
08. Sunset Wildlife Spotting
Just before the sun starts hiding behind the horizon, make sure your wildlife spotting adventures don’t stop here. Take a boat ride away from the mainland, hang onto the handrails ready to meet some of the most exciting creatures yet to see. Depending on the time of year, you’ll be able to engage in a unique whale watching and/or dolphin watching experience. Being one of the top five best whale and dolphin spotting locations in the world, with a wide variety of them on display, this is one of the Maldives honeymoon activities that we recommend you do not miss out on.
09. Tune into the Extravagant Night Life
Now that the night has come, it’s time to loosen up and socialize. Remember, island hopping to get a unique sense of what each island had to offer? Well, it would be a certain disappointment if you didn’t indulge in some club and bar hopping too. With all the different nighttime locations out there to socialize, you would want to gate crash at least a few of these places, after all. Meet some more newlyweds and jovial individuals in the beach parties of the Maldivian islands that buzz throughout the night.
10.Visit the Mudhdhoo Island
In case you happen to enjoy just the company of yourselves and the nature around you, this top spot is just for the two of you. What used to be a top local secret that is now raising flags for most tourists is the island of Mudhdhoo. You might want to take a cocktail just for the two of you and head out to the coast of this island while it’s dark. By this time, the sands of the coast emit bioluminescence. Yes, the golden sands of the day glow an eerie luminous blue during the dark. A glow in the dark beach, cocktails at hand, low lit surrounding encouraging stargazing of the night skies – now that’s one experience you can’t miss out on.
