Taking a cue from the couple’s romantic trip, we’ve listed down some things that you shouldn’t miss out on when you are in the paradise island.

The Naifaru Island of Maldives is the most popular destination for snorkelling. Suit up, gear up and dive into the blue waters to explore what nirvana truly feels like.

Planktons are a group of organisms that provide essential food to our aquatic buddies. Due to certain forces of water-currents, these organisms end up floating on the water surface, making it glow a calming blue shade. Before you visit, be sure to check the weather forecast for Bioluminescent Plankton.
