For beautiful beaches head to the Maldives

Why honeymoon in the Maldives

A honeymoon favourite, The Maldives offers heavenly beaches, first class resorts and the sort of laid back atmosphere that is perfect for a romantic breakaway. With over 1000 coral islands scattered into clusters across the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, you can be certain to find your own deserted patch of paradise.

Where to find romance

Take a boat trip from your hotel with a picnic to one of the uninhabited islands and lay claim to your own mini deserted island. The scenery in The Maldives is stunning, so you never have to go far to find a breathtaking sight. End the day with a glass of bubbly on the beach, and enjoy nights sleeping under traditional thatched roofs and wake up to the sun beating down.

What to see and do

The Maldives’ wealth of underwater wildlife, makes it the perfect place to snorkel, windsurf, big-game fish or sail off into the sunset. Colourful fish, corals, turtles, rays and even harmless white tip and black tip sharks are just waiting to be discovered. Many of the hotels offer PADI courses, allowing you to learn to dive in the warmest sea you’ll ever swim in.

For a taste of local culture and history, hit the mini capital Male for its bustling waterfront and the dhoni harbour from where you can watch the yachts moor up. Visit the Singapore Bazaar and haggle for local bargains or head for the cooling depths of the Sultan Mohamed Thakurufaanu Mosque, Male’s most outstanding architectural feat.

Where to stay

Reached by a breathtaking 25-minute seaplane from the capital of the Maldives archipelago, the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island is spread over two islands, offering ultimate escapism and a deep blue lagoon surrounded by a dramatic reef.
