The Maldives is the romantic oasis you've always dreamed of. Nestled in the Indian Ocean, the nation of islands is so much more than the overwater bungalows often advertised. Although these luxurious stays should be at the top of your honeymoon bucket list, you'll want to be sure to experience the many stunning views and once in a lifetime excursions the islands have to offer. In the Maldives, there's so much more than meets the eye; in fact, some of the nation's most incredible gems lie below sea level!
You don't want to miss these unique experiences, so be sure to save these ideas for your future honeymoon or vacation.
Sunset Dolphin Watching
Seeing dolphins in the wild doesn't get any better than in the Maldives. You can find active pods of spinner dolphins regularly feeding during sunset, making it the perfect evening entertainment. Many tour operators and resorts offer these spectacular sunset excursions, and some even include a bar on board the boat.
Scuba Diving and Snorkeling
If you thought the views of the Maldives were amazing above ground, wait until you get into the waters. The glistening, turquoise ocean offers crystal clear views of the vibrant marine life, from stingrays and sea turtles to schools of tropical fish and colorful coral reefs. Scuba diving or snorkeling is the best way to explore the vast aquatic paradise that lies beneath the islands' surfaces.
If you stay on a private island, it can be difficult to get the full, authentic experience of visiting the Maldives. With over 1,000 islands that make up the country, an island-hopping excursion can give you a mix of culture with visits to islands where locals live and drop-dead gorgeous views from secluded sandbars and beaches.

Prior to meeting Mary Beth, we hadn’t really thought of using anyone to book our honeymoon. However, after we met Mary Beth with Your Vacation Plan & had discussions on what she would handle (which was everything!), it was the best decision we made. Mary Beth took the time to research what we were looking for & gave us options. Not only did she supply the pros to the resorts, but also the cons from personal experience which honestly, is the best way for us to decide. We love anyone who can relate and be personable!! She truly cared about what place would work best for us & was so transparent! Planning a wedding is stressful enough & working with Mary Beth was such a breeze. I would 100% recommend booking through Your Vacation Plan. We look forward to booking other trips through them! You will not be disappointed with the service. Thank you, Mary Beth for taking this stress off our shoulders & recommending such a beautiful place for our honeymoon
"Mary Beth was phenomenal to work with! Thank you SO MUCH for making our honeymoon the most amazing experience and vacation we have been on!! With things changing almost daily with covid, she was SO helpful and reassuring through the whole process. We could not thank her enough for creating such an incredible experience for us. From start to finish she kept us up to date, suggested alternatives when our original plans fell through, and did it all with such a kind and calming presence. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. We are SO thankful and will 100% use Your Vacation Plan in the future for our travels. Thank you!!
Mary Beth is wonderful! She always has your best interest in mind while helping you plan your vacation. When unexpected cancellations came up for our trip she had us rebooked while she was at an appointment! She also gave us great ideas for our excursions. She is the only travel agent we will use!
Because of the COVID-19, we wound up changing our honeymoon destination, and we could not have been happier! I honestly believe that our honeymoon was even better than what we had originally had planned in Jamaica, and that’s all thanks to Mary Beth’s hard work! We had the trip of a lifetime, and will absolutely be going through Mary Beth next time! She is incredibly detail oriented and diligent, so every time we considered changing plans, she was right there providing her expertise and insight into our options. She worked many late nights, kept in consistent contact about everything that was going on in the country we were going to be visiting. I 100% recommend you use Mary Beth for any and all of your travel needs! Her hard work and passion will make your planning experience more enjoyable and your traveling experience to die for!
