Explore the Maldivian Capital, Malé

Malé serves as the country’s primary gateway, a densely populated and highly urbanised metropolis that was traditionally used as the king’s island, where Maldives’ ancient royal families ruled from. One of the easiest ways to get familiar with its rich history is by booking a Maldives tour package, which should include stops at Malé’s major historical sights, including the President’s Palace, the Old Friday Mosque, Sultan Park, and the National Museum. With a professional guide, you should be able to cover all the highlights in a half-day before jetting off to secluded island resort. 

Check into a Luxury Overwater Villa

Tourism is the Maldives’ biggest industry, bringing in 28% of the country’s GDP. Luxury resorts abound and private island for rent. If you’ve already settled on this country as your honeymoon destination, we recommend going the extra mile and securing an overwater villa for the occasion to make it truly memorable.

The ultimate in Maldivian luxury, these units hover three to seven feet above the ocean’s surface, are well-appointed and beautifully furnished, and come equipped with features to make your stay truly unforgettable. Have a look online to see what different establishments have to offer. Standouts include butler service or an in-house chef, a private pool or jacuzzi, or even your very own fully stocked wine cellar.

What all of these overwater villas have in common is an elevated level of privacy, being usually a good way away from the more populated areas of a resort. You can be as disconnected as you want to be, for as long as you need to be. Isn’t that what we all want when we’re on a romantic vacation?

Go Island Hopping

Sure, you and your loved one absolutely can hole up in your gorgeous private villa for the entire duration of your stay. When everything you need is a simple call down to the front desk away, it can be difficult to think of a reason why you should ever step out of your quiet sanctuary. Couples who choose to see more of the Maldives, however, will be rewarded with the absolute best of what the country has to offer.

Many resorts offer private day tours to other islands, some of them genuinely uninhabited, for a daylong castaway experience. Exploring the Maldives’ 1,190 islands also gives tourists access to unspoiled snorkeling areas teeming with marine life, as well as glimpses into true island culture as it is lived by the locals.

Seek Out Thrills

The Maldives’ location in the Indian Ocean makes it an ideal spot for exciting water-based adventures. Couples can go kayaking, paddle boarding, wind-surfing, ride jet skis, and free dive, among other popular pastimes. You can also go swimming with whale sharks, snorkel with stingrays, or get up close and personal with a real live hammerhead shark (or two, or more).

Warm water and excellent visibility also make the Maldives the ideal place to learn how to scuba dive, and many resorts offer professional courses in-house. Make sure to check out the ones on North Male Atoll if you’re a beginner. As a well-known surfing destination, there are also plenty of surfing schools within the atolls where you can learn the sport. Consider scheduling your holiday between April and October for the best swells.

Visitors to the Maldives will most likely enter the country from Velana International Airport in Malé. From there, travel between islands will be via domestic flights, seaplanes, or boats. Immigration tends to ask questions about where you’ll be staying, so have the name and phone number of your hotel or resort handy. We hope this guide has helped you plan a marvelous Maldives getaway! Enjoy your honeymoon!
