Hi sean

There are inhabited islands that you can visit with souviners to buy but its not like shopping as you would get here,just one "street". There is no shopping on the resort islands only one shop on the smaller islands and maybe two or three on the bigger islands, so if its shopping and night life you are looking for then maybe the maldives is not for you, sunbathing, reading books, snorkelling, diving (why not learn to dive), the odd game of football or volleyball, some of the bigger islands have more to do as far as water sports and games etc but really, chilling out is what the maldives is all about

regards susie

Hi Sean

Just a thought....have you considered Cuba for your honeymoon?? There is a little more shopping than there is in the Maldives and it generally escapes bad weather. If you choose the maldives there are usually some good excursions. We just came back from Dhonveli and there was snorkelling trips, dolphin watching, deep sea fishing, island hopping etc. But bare in mind if you are sea sick like me, you will not have the opportunity to enjoy most trips as most involve being on a boat for longer than 10 minutes. Hope this helps.
