Maldives Honeymoons

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.

What about the weather?

What about the weather?

Visit our 'weather by month' page for details, but as a general rule the Maldives are a year round destination, although the best season to visit is between November and April. Outside these months, be prepared for occasional showers, which last for a few hours before the skies clear. Diving conditions are generally good all year round, although May and June can be more unsettled with choppier sea conditions.
