The Maldives

We say ‘Maldives’, you say ‘honeymoon’. Known for its glamorous overwater bungalows, crystal-clear waters and blindingly-white beaches, this Indian Ocean destination is made for romance. With nearly 1,200 islands to choose from, picking where to go first is the only challenge you’ll encounter. Each island is unique, with many of them turned into private island resorts.

Keen divers? The Maldives’ southern islands boast an array of deep, otherworldly lagoons. For snorkelling, visit the northern islands to discover giant sprawling underwater reef rings and fascinating marine life. If you’re just looking to chill out, practically every island in the Maldives provides the ideal setting for cocktails, seafood dinners and beachside massages.
