As the engagement video of Swazi-born South African actress Amanda du-Pont to soon-to-be husband Shaun Rodriques in a picturesque lagoon in the Maldives melted internet hearts on Monday, 9 July, we thought to share some of the world’s most beautiful marriage proposal destinations to profess one’s undying love.
Here are five unexpected yet incredible destinations to have your proposal:

Personal style blogger Tshepang Mollison, better known as Twiggy, has shared a few snaps of her trip in the picturesque island of Velassaru in the Maldives, and we’re so envious!
Twiggy’s followers on Instagram have been privy to the influencer’s pictures and Instastories shared with the hashtags #coronaparadise2018 and #twiggymolitravels, with her taking in the local scenery, laying pool- and beach-side, sampling the local cuisine, and indulging in some watersports on offer.
Made up of 26 ring-shaped atolls consisting of over 1 000 coral islands, the Maldives, situated in the Indian Ocean, make for the perfect tropical holiday destination.
The Maldives is largely regarded as a honeymooners’ paradise. And while that is still most certainly true, the destination is starting to become an ideal holiday destination for families. With the likes of Club Med offering all-inclusive kids’ clubs, more families are escaping to this sun-kissed destination than ever before.
Perhaps best known for its idyllic white beaches and crystal clear turquoise sea, rhe Republic of the Maldives is situated in the Indian Ocean. This tropical nation is composed of 26 ring-shaped atolls, which are made up of more than 1 000 coral islands – many still uninhabited.
“Ah, so you’re from South Africa,” says my GO (resort ambassador) at Club Med Kani, directing my luggage as she hands me a cold towel to freshen up with as the humidity hits. “You like to surf, yes?”
“Ah, no,” I reply, looking at the flat water and wondering where one could possibly catch a wave.
I’m asked about my interest in surfing several times over the next couple of days when I reveal my nationality. Apparently the Maldives is a good destination for keen surfers and, despite the distance from home, it attracts many South African surfers.
