The Maldives serve up a classic beach honeymoon, with seaplane transfers to private sandbar islands, their shorelines washed by crystal-clear turquoise waters. Because the islands are so well practised when it comes to romance, honeymooners will receive fantastic perks such as room upgrades and special deals. There's not a lot to do here apart from dive, indulge yourself, play sports, feel glamourous and enjoy being pampered - which might be enough for many newlyweds! But if culture or wildlife are on your honeymoon wishlist, Sri Lanka is just a short hop away, and we recommend combining the two.

Responsible Travel in the Maldives
It should come as no surprise that the realities of the climate emergency weigh very heavily on the minds of the Maldivian people and the many businesses invested in the islands. 'For the idyllic, 1,200-island archipelago in the Indian Ocean, forward-thinking sustainability initiatives—such as the effort to be carbon neutral by 2020—are a matter of survival' —Marie-Amélie Carpio, senior editor, National Geographic Travel France
In 1987 the Maldives was the first nation to champion the need to address climate change in the UN General Assembly and have continued to be a leading voice on an environment-first approach ever since. The lowest lying country on the planet, with an average elevation of less than two meters, could disappear in the coming decades due to rising sea levels. We actively encourage clients to consider the many resorts and hotels in the Maldives that are taking industry leading approaches to minimising their contribution to global warming and to help protect the UNESCO listed Baa Atoll Biosphere Reserve which helps protect the Maldives’ fragile coral reefs and therefore in turn the its accompany marine and bird life.
