Top island destinations for Honeymoons
The Maldives and Sri Lanka are some top islands for honeymooners, and the Andaman Islands as well if you want to stick to Indian territory. As the Maldives and Sri Lanka don’t fall under Indian territory, you will need to submit an online visa application before getting there. For citizens of other countries, you would need to check the visa requirements to Sri Lanka and the Maldives before planning your trips.
The Maldives is a lovely string of islands sitting in the Indian Oceans, where you’ll find pristine white beaches and bright blue ocean waters. It is one of the top islands for honeymoon for those looking for luxurious holidays. Here, you can expect to sample the local seafood-based cuisine, participate in watersports, and even try some fishing of your own.
Sri Lanka is also an increasingly popular honeymoon destination. It’s the closest country to the Maldives, and you often need a connecting flight to get to the Maldives from Sri Lanka. In Sri Lanka, you can expect a much wider range of activities than the Maldives, because it’s a bigger and more culturally diverse country.
Which islands should we choose?
Ultimately, this all boils down to your budget and itinerary preferences. In the Maldives, you can expect to find more high-end and luxurious accommodation or resorts than Sri Lanka. However, there’s not a lot of things to do in the Maldives since it’s a tiny country.
So, opt for the Maldives if you’re a huge fan of seafood, want an expensive luxury holiday or want a short honeymoon. Sri Lanka, on the other hand, is a larger country with more cultural diversity and history. So, if you’re a fan of exploring and want a more extended honeymoon, Sri Lanka can keep you occupied with a range of tourist attractions and local cuisines to choose from.
Sri Lanka is also great if you’re on a budget, as it is less expensive than the Maldives. Some of the top tourist attractions in Sri Lanka include Sigiriya (a historical rock temple in an ancient kingdom), Kandy town and Adam’s peak.
