10 Reasons Why Maldives Is The World’s Top Romantic Destination

The Maldives may be physically sinking due to high surface erosion and rising sea levels, but the archipelagic state has retained its charm to new starry-eyed couples, soon-to-be engaged couples, honeymooners, guests celebrating wedding anniversary, well… basically all lovers.

Here are ten reasons why Maldives is the ultimate romantic getaway:

1 – The beaches

The powdered-coral shores are all as pristine and picture-perfect as couples bask in pure, natural love. They are amazingly white.

2 – A night sky encrusted with diamonds

Where better to present the sparkling rock – and pop the question – than under the clear Maldivian sky with twinkling stars?

3 – The over-water villas

The crowning glory of a romantic holiday is a private hut-on-stilts that's literally a few feet above the sea. It simply cannot get any more isolated and closer to nature than this. You’ll feel it’s your piece of heaven on earth.

4 – The People

The natives and expats have melded so beautifully that their cheery disposition can be generally infectious. They will leave you in your own world and appear at your doorstep just when you need them.

Every relationship is unique, just as the turquoise waters in Maldives. Long-lasting love flows where there's peace and quiet. Couples committed to each other know this.

9 – Even if it's not for the water

Let’s face it, not everyone loves the water. Not a problem! You need not stay in an overwater villa. Every island-resort almost certainly offers equally exquisite beach-front villas.
