5 Romantic things to do in the Maldives - A checklist for a romantic getaway

Whether you are in the Maldives on your honeymoon or not, the archipelago is with many options that will keep that flame burning for years to come!


Go on a diving adventure

They say that nothing brings two people closer like shared time and experiences. Test the saying by taking to the beautiful waters of the Maldives and going on a diving adventure. Almost all Maldives island resorts offer diving and snorkelling at their resorts, while some places like Dhigali Maldives has a house reef to make your adventure a little more private. Not only would this be a great way to have an adventure, it's not every day that you get to see colourful reefs and swim with schools of fish alongside your partner, but it will also be one of those experiences that you can later compare; did you see that manta ray that almost touched my hand? How many turtles did you see?


Go island hopping

Being a collection of islands, the Maldives has quite a variety of types of islands to explore. When you take on an island-hopping tour, you are signing up to explore the different facets of the archipelago. There are resort islands where the only structure on the island is a luxury resort. Then there are local islands where the local community live and go about their day. Then there are uninhabited islands, which are mostly forest, beach, or a combination thereof, and a place where you are likely to have plenty of time all to yourself. You can even go on a trek or a hike on one of these islands, and sit down for a picnic meal. A usual island hopping package will take you to three to four different island types.


Have a one-of-a-kind dinner date

Going on a dinner date is nothing new in the romance department. But when you are in the Maldives, you can go on a one-of-a-kind dinner date with the residents of the Indian Ocean as your company. There are several restaurants in the Maldives that offer underwater dining experiences. You will be seated in a transparent dome and will have the curious manta ray stop by to see what your starter is, or a school of fish swim by adding a touch of glamour to your fancy dinner date.


Have a sunset cruise

There is something about sunsets and the ocean that speaks to the romantic in all of us. Take a cue from that, and book yourselves a sunset cruise complete with dinner. Sail towards the setting sun standing against the salty breeze of the Indian Ocean. When the time is right, indulge in a delicious dinner under the canopy of stars. It is one of the most private and most romantic experiences you could ever imagine.


Go for a couples' massage

With all the frolicking and the snorkelling, your bodies might need a bit of pampering. Book yourselves a couples' massage at one of the great spas that you can find in the Maldives. Relax to the sound of the crashing waves, and realize that romance is found in the adrenaline-pumping adventure as well as in the most relaxing of experiences.
