7 Best Things to Do on a Maldives Honeymoon - Top Seven Activities to Enjoy on Your Maldivian Honeymoon

As one of the world's best-loved honeymoon destinations, the Maldives offers couples a plethora of romantic and engaging activities. Here are seven ways to experience the Maldives on your honeymoon.



Regarded as a fun and memorable activity all couples can enjoy together, snorkelling requires no swimming skills or prior experience. Unlike scuba diving, which not only demands special training and equipment, uncovering the coral gardens and marine species occupying the coastlines of the Maldives on a snorkelling expedition only requires fins and a snorkel. These simple requirements are provided by the resort or tour operator at no additional cost and couples can discover the many fish species and coral varieties inhabiting their resort base's house reef or venture to another island via speedboat for a snorkelling adventure.


Spa Indulgences

Home to more spa resorts than any other honeymoon hotspot in Asia, signing up for a relaxing and rejuvenating day at the spa is a treat all couples should experience on a Maldivian holiday. Regardless of the spa facility one selects, expect to be treated like royalty within the stylish and inviting confines of Maldivian spas where Balinese, Swedish and Thai massage and beauty therapies are all available alongside Ayurvedic treatments and other herbal remedies for aches and pains or stress relief.


Sunset Cruise

Tipped to be the best way to enjoy an unforgettable sunset while honeymooning in paradise, sunset cruises are available via a host of resorts and private tour operators in the country. Setting off during the evening hours, couples can toast the sunset with a glass of champagne and munch on canap├ęs while friendly dolphins and other marine life approach the catamaran or sea vessel during this magical hour of the day. Offering couples the chance to snap some truly stunning honeymoon photographs, the excursions provides one with a truly unique vantage point from which to witness this daily phenomenon.


Beach Dining

The perks of spending a honeymoon in a beach capital the likes of the Maldives is not limited to spending hours lounging on the beachfront or engaging in water-bound activities. The bespoke dining experience in this white, sandy setting is another reason why Maldivian honeymoons are so popular among those with a penchant for unique dining encounters. Resorts and hotels often arrange picnic baskets or a full course meal spread for such special occasions when one wishes to enjoy a candlelight dinner on the beach and the results are unforgettable, to say the least.


Room Service

When one is based at Maldives beach villas the likes of which are found at Adaaran Select Hudhuran Fushi among countless other accommodation providers, there's nothing quite as romantic as ordering room service right to your villa. There's no need to change or leave the confines of your luxurious sanctuary by the water as everything from coffee and breakfast to midday snacks and a full course dinner are brought to your doorstep by hotel staff.


Outdoor Movie Showcase

Another activity one can only experience in the Maldives, watching the latest or a classic Hollywood film on the beach is a rare pleasure awaiting honeymooners heading to the archipelago. These outdoor cinematic encounters are reserved for certain nights of the week in various resorts and create the perfect atmosphere to enjoy a blockbuster in paradise.


Cultural Tour

No trip to the Maldives would be complete without taking in the sights in the nation's capital Male. Head to Sultan Park, Republic Square and tour the old presidential palaces of Male on a cultural excursion and shop for keepsakes at Chaandhanee Magu before calling it a day in this beachside metropolis.
