You know those postcard photos you see of these ridiculously beautiful destinations that look too amazing to even be real?! Like, is that real life??? Where is the water that color of blue? How does somewhere exist that seems to exude such relaxation simply by looking at a photo?
Well, one such destination is The Maldives, and it really does spell absolute perfection for honeymooners looking for romance, or couples looking to get away and stare deeply into each other’s eyes as they watch the sun set day after day in one of the most gorgeous locations in the entire world. If the following paragraphs ring true for you, know that this is somewhere you should certainly put on your wanderlust radar.
You are seeking true relaxation. A destination where you can immediately feel the stress begin to roll away the minute you step foot on the sand and gaze out into the crystal-clear turquoise water. There is no better place on Earth to sway in a hammock underneath a beautiful blue sky, perched next to your own individual overwater bungalow.
Making this special kind of daydream a reality means that you aren’t planning for activity-filled days, or venturing out to see the sights and go on adventures. Here you become the master of doing nothing, and doing it in style. The most popular activity here aside from hammock swaying, is snorkeling through mesmerizing coral reefs, and becoming intimately acquainted with the vast array of brightly colored sea life found here.
The Maldives is Asia’s smallest country, and is a collection of small coral islands in the Indian Ocean. Honeymooner’s will fall in love with this destination as their backdrop, as it provides them with an unparalleled setting for romance, and the seclusion often sought after the whirlwind of a wedding. Here you have the opportunity to just be.
The unrivaled luxury and perfect beaches found here mean that this tiny, unassuming country sees about 1 million visitors a year. If you don’t mind a little rain, go during May through December when it’s a little quieter and there aren’t so many tourists. The prices will also be more favorable.
