Things to do in Maldives – How to Have Fun in Paradise

Traversing within the Maldivian archipelago will leave you astounded. The sun kissed white sandy beaches & turquoise sea will make way for you to enjoy the paradise. Here's a list of what you can do.

Scuba Diving in the Maldives

Scuba Diving in the Maldives

Diving in the Maldives is one of the archipelago's top attractions. A mesmerising world beneath the waves as well as an innumerable collection of marine life that thrive in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean add to the allure. You will find that diving in the Maldives is open to novices as well; PADI certificates are offered at many of the dive centres located right within a luxury Maldives resort. The Immersion Dive Centre at the Velassaru Maldives, for instance, is an example of diving fun aimed at tourists of all ages. You can book private tours, group tours and even kids diving tours. All dives are accompanied by seasoned instructors and are very high on the impressive scale. You can choose dive sites that cater to your level of expertise; wreck diving, diving through underwater tunnels, overhangs and reefs are available at many locations across the archipelago.

Snorkelling

Snorkelling

Snorkelling does not require a major skill and training like scuba diving, it is a wholesome family activity that can be enjoyed by anyone who can swim. Snorkelling tours to some of the best bays are available, although a mere swim off the sandy shores of your Maldives beach resort will take you to one of the closest reefs. There you will come across a myriad of colourful corals, small fish and the passing turtle or manta ray. The waters around the Maldives are extremely clear with some places offering visibility to a depth of up to 50 metres; this is very conducive for snorkelers to enjoy the tropical allures beneath the waves.

Island Hopping

Made up of over a 1000 islands the Maldivian archipelago is a treat to explore. You can book an island hopping cruise from the comfort of your Maldives hotel. Set off into the wide open ocean and explore the islands. Stop at the uninhabited ones and explore the verdant forest, enjoy a picnic on the sun kissed beaches and look forward to swimming in quiet bays. Your tour will also cover the local islands where loads of local flavour, culture and traditions are yours to delight in. Indulge in some local cuisine, chat to the villagers and maybe watch a fresh catch being brought in.

Sunset Cruises

Taking a sunset cruise into a blazing sky is one of the most romantic adventures you will experience in the Maldives. Sunset cruises aboard a luxury yacht or traditional dhoni are ideal for experiencing the magical sunsets at sea. As the sunsets and day turn into the night you are enveloped in a blanket of starry sky. Sip champagne and relax with your loved one as the boat gently sways to the swell of the waves and relish the serene tranquillity.

Culture Tour

The Maldives is well known for its vintage culture. Tour the oldest mosque Hukuru Miskiiy or Old Friday Mosque. Discover the coral walls covered with Arabic inscriptions and marvel at the intricate woodwork that's centuries old. The National Museum is a treasure trove of wonder where the country's history is carefully chronicled with vintage displays. And last but not least head over to the fish market where daily auctions, haggling and loads of hustle and bustle are fine examples of the fisher nation's colourful traditions.
