4. Island Hopping for an Extra Ordinary Experience- Get lost in the majestic beauty of this region by indulging in island hopping.

Since the Maldives is known for its diverse variety of cuisines, you can choose from a multitude of options for that very special occasion. Go to a themed restaurant or enjoy a candlelight dinner in a private setting in a secluded spot right on the beach.
7.Touring the Capital of Maldives- Take some time off from your resort and indulge in an excursion to Malé, the Island capital of Maldives. Here, you will get an overview of the city life and Maldivian culture. Take a stroll on the streets, visit the main market, and dive into the artificial beach pool. There are many attractions too that you can include in your Malé tour like Sultan Park, the President's Palace, National Museum, and Friday Mosque.
8. Making Magical Moments with Glow-in-the-Dark Beach- Ever heard of a beach which glows in the dark? No, we are not kidding. In some parts of the beaches (majorly in Mudhdhoo Island) in the Maldives, you will witness this magic and feel as if you are living a dream. But there is a science behind this. There are certain organisms called ostracod crustaceans in the water that illuminate the beach at night, turning it into a starry sky. To catch a glimpse, you can choose to stay in properties like DusitThani, Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru, and AngsanaIhuru.
9. Cruising Amidst the Radiant Water- Your honeymoon is incomplete if you don't have cruising on your bucket list. If you want to experience the real taste of luxury in the Maldives, this is it. Just imagine yourself enjoying the cruise under the bright white moonlight, sipping some sparkling water and getting into the heart of Maldives.
10. Taking a Stroll Under Water in Submarines- Add some adventure to your Maldivian honeymoon by exploring the intensity of the blue ocean through a submarine ride with your loved one. The best way to do this is to book a Whale Submarine off Malé from your resort which will take you deep into the waters where you will discover everything from shipwrecks to sharks.
