The impossibly idyllic Maldives fully justify their lofty reputation as the ultimate beach destination. An archipelago of tiny coral islands hosts a string of mostly 4 and 5 star resorts featuring bucket list over-water villas and some of the best snorkelling in the world.
And its not just for honeymooners, there are some excellent resorts catering to families. It is a nirvana for snorkellers and divers and select spots host some of the most reliable surf in the world. And if you are in the market for more than just a beach holiday, then we can thoroughly recommend combining with a week exploring Sri Lanka.
