Engaged couples looking for a honeymoon destination that offers a combination of luxury and excitement have been encouraged to consider the Maldives.

Mohamed Adam, acting managing director of the Maldives Marketing and Public Relations Corporation, said the island nation offers palm tree-lined beaches, high-end resorts and 'excellent' service, but also provides opportunities to try watersports and cruise excursions.

Scuba diving is highly popular - with more than 300 different types of tropical fish in the surrounding waters - as are windsurfing, kayaking, snorkelling and jet skiing.

Commenting on the enduring appeal of the Maldives as a post-wedding holiday destination, Mr Adam said: 'The Maldives is extremely popular with honeymooners, as the island life and postcard-perfect paradise is often viewed as a once-in-a-lifetime indulgence.'

Flights to Male, the Maldives' capital and most populous city, are available with several major carriers, including British Airways, Emirates, Etihad Airways, Air Berlin and Singapore Airlines.
