World’s best honeymoon diving destinations

Your honeymoon should be a real once in a lifetime experience – a holiday that you’ll never forget. It’s also one time when you can legitimately spoil yourselves rotten without feeling guilty. Which is why a diving holiday in one of the world’s most romantic destinations ticks a lot of your honeymoon boxes.

Mauritius
This tiny volcanic island nations lies in the heart of the exotic Indian Ocean. Enjoy the tropical climate and warm waters, stay in a beach hut and dive to explore an underwater world of reef and bull sharks, shelving reefs and thriving marine life.

Belize

Diving in Belize Barrier Reef, Belize

This small Central American nation is the midpoint between the Latin flavour of its inland neighbours and the Caribbean island lifestyle. It’s also home to one of the world’s great reefs along its 200 mile stretch of Caribbean coastline. Enjoy tropical landscapes, white sandy beaches and incredible diving in the reef and atolls along the shore.

The Dutch Antilles

Diving in Bonaire, Dutch Antilles

Some of the lesser known Caribbean islands, the Dutch Antilles offer everything you would expect from the region – tropical conditions, superb accommodation and laidback lifestyles – without the hordes of some of the better known islands. Dive to experience sharks, rays, eels and giant sea turtles.

Indonesia

Diving in Papua & Raja Ampat, Indonesia
There are countless dive spots spread around the islands that make up Indonesia. Visit the beautiful islands of Bali or Lombok, and dive in the volcanic waters of the Pacific Ring of Fire. Explore the Coral Triangle – one of the most diverse marine environments on the planet – for unforgettable diving.

Mexico

Diving in Baja California, Mexico
The food, the beaches, the culture – Mexico holds a big place in the world’s imagination. The southeastern state of Yucatan is home to the huge resort city of Cancun, as well as ancient Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza and Tulum. Here you can go cave diving in the vast cenote network or in the tropical Caribbean waters.

On the other side of the country, the vast Baja California is best accessed by live aboard diving boats, with a group of uninhabited volcanic islands being home to some stunning marine life. Of course, this being Mexico, your honeymoon will also be blessed with sunshine, tequila and tacos.

Mozambique

Diving in Cabo Delgado, Mozambique

One of Africa’s most up and coming nations, Mozambique is littered with pristine beaches and enigmatic offshore islands. With more than 1500 miles of coastline just waiting to be discovered, the diving here is truly unique. Navigate mangrove lagoons, remote archipelagos or try a safari in the wilderness of the Gorongosa National Park.

Thailand

Diving in Phi Phi Island, Thailand
It may have a reputation as a party hotspot, but there’s more to Thailand than you know. The cities are big, bustling and as intriguing as you imagine but get off the beaten track and you’ll discover the stunning beaches of the Coral Triangle. Also, head to the Gulf of Thailand area and dive spots like Koh Samui and Koh Dho.

If this is a once in a lifetime break (with any luck at least) then you have to go for something a little special. Explore any of these destinations, above or below the water, and you’ll be in for an unforgettable honeymoon experience.
