Adventures for Two in the Maldives
Once you’ve taken the plunge, let the adventure continue with a thrill-filled honeymoon that will make your heart pound.
Tucked away in the Indian Ocean southwest of India and Sri Lanka, the Maldives offers intrepid honeymooners a secluded aquatic playground. Four Seasons Resort Landaa Giraavaru and Four Seasons Resort at Kuda Huraa can help arrange activities to suit your comfort level. From swimming with manta rays or diving into sky-high waves, couples can coax each other to try something bold.
Explore New Depths
The Maldives is considered one of the top 10 diving spots in the world. Jumping in here is a chance to discover an underwater world of vibrant coral gardens, ghostly shipwrecks and, of course, fish species as far as the eye can see. Beginners can try the Learn to Dive package, which certifies you in two days.
Swim With Sharks
At Four Seasons Resort Maldives Kuda Huraa, couples who live on the wild side can have a close encounter with one of nature’s most feared predators. On the Shark Safari Snorkel, join marine biologists on an underwater journey to see blacktip and whitetip reef sharks at close range.
Surf Some Waves
Experienced surfers will love the huge swells that promise long rides and warm waters. The two-day Ride Clinic hones your skills, while the Perfect Wave program brings surfers on guided trips to the best off-the-beaten surf spots in the area. Beginners won’t be left by the beach; at the Kuda Huraa Surf School seasoned instructors teach the fundamentals and help you ride your first wave.
Catch Some Rays
If snorkelling with sea life is your speed, take a ride from Four Seasons Landaa Giraavaru on the Manta On-Call boat to Hanifaru Bay, where massive migrations of manta rays and whale sharks gather in June through October. If you want to learn more about these gentle sea giants, visit the property’s Marine Discovery Centre, the base for pioneering research on these amazing creatures.
Try reeling in a big tuna, wrangling a sailfish or wrestling a mahimahi aboard the 55-foot High Flyer, a sport-fishing boat designed for catching the biggest fish in the sea. Couples can choose a full-day (eight-hour) or half-day (four-hour) charter fishing package.
