One couple balances underwater adventure with serious relaxation on their romantic getaway.

Sarah and Richard chose the Maldives for their October honeymoon because of the renowned quality of its hotels, the gorgeous scenery, and its remote location. "We wanted a place where we could rest and recover from the excitement—and stress—of the wedding.

"Note the private beach!" Richard says.
