Booking a Honeymoon: Enjoy seclusion, luxury and diving in the Maldives
To get away from it all, and to explore the clear blue waters of the Indian Ocean, it is hard to beat the Maldives.
The phrase ‘get away from it all’ is never more apt than for a honeymoon. Weddings are fantastic events but for the bride and groom they can be the culmination of many months of hard work and after the big day the desire to ‘get away from it all’ is understandably strong.
If that is the case, then the Maldives are really the place to go. Located over 9,000km from Ireland, it is really hard to get any further away and the Indian Ocean chain of atolls are definitely worth the trip.
Thanks to this special location, the chief attraction of the Maldives is the beautiful waters that surround them. The islands are genuine desert islands, with sandy beaches meeting warm, crystal clear waters.
You can undertake any number of activities in the water, from fishing to snorkelling but the best way to get the most from your visit is to do some diving.
With 3,000 coral reefs surrounding the islands, the place is teeming with sea life, from tiny shrimp to magnificent mantas and sharks. And the best thing is, you don’t have to be a diver to enjoy it.
Every resort is equipped to give you basic to advanced training and if you are an experienced diver, the sheer number of dive sites, and their quality, means you will never run out of places to explore. Night dives are on offer too, bringing a whole new perspective to the underwater world.
Back on land you can dine under the stars, explore virtually uninhabited islands or just hang out in your private bungalow while you receive a well deserved beauty treatment or two.
