Further south you will discover Kerala which like Goa has fantastic exotic beaches, yet has a more relaxed, traditional atmosphere. Some liken Kerala to how Goa was 10 years ago, somewhat undiscovered and a well kept secret, here you will get a real taste of the Indian culture and can stay either on the mainland or on Poovar Island just off the mainland.
Sri Lanka is another island just off the Indian coastline; however it is a country in its own right and is considerably larger than Poovar Island. It is situated just off the south east coast of India and nowhere encapsulates the Indian Ocean better than here - there's a great mix of relaxing exotic beach life and amazing excursions to explore the cultural heartbeat of the country, ensuring a memorable trip.
Closer to home, flights to Dubai are shorter than any of the other Indian Ocean destinations, with many direct flights available from the UK. The area has undergone massive recent development and is now home to the world's highest skyscraper, along with Palm Island (man-made islands in the shape of a palm tree) and The World (man-made islands in the shape of the world), as well as some fantastic new shopping centres and hotels. Honeymooners are spoilt for choice in the Indian Ocean with their most popular picks usually being Mauritius, the Seychelles and the Maldives.
Although not exclusively for honeymooners, they are perfectly suited for a relaxing romantic getaway in the sun. Mauritius is stunning and has amazing coral reefs which scuba divers love to explore, whilst the Seychelles provide lush, natural beauty of the highest order and have great beaches. Meanwhile, the archipelago known as the Maldives has long been sought after, due to being one of the most strikingly beautiful areas on the planet and is great for snorkelling too.
