Things to do in Maldives - Favourite Island Jaunts for the Lazy Rebel

The Maldives Islands is indeed the typical holiday paradise every tourist dreams about. Whether it's dipping your toes in the ocean or enjoying the scenery, bliss is guaranteed.


Scuba Diving

It is fairly safe to say that Maldives is the first choice of destination for scuba diving. There are many diving centres that will provide you with all the equipment and facilities for scuba diving which are handily light on the purse. Beginners or non-certified divers need not fear the waters. There are often ample experts for guidance and divers are welcome to go for a free trial to get the feel of the water and warm themselves up. Among the colourful and amazing underwater life that can be found here are stingrays for which the islands are famously known. Amongst other natural observations of marine life are the migrating whale sharks and sea turtles laying their eggs.



What the coral reefs of Maldives lack in depth, they make up for in underwater scenery and this is one thing snorkelers won't mind at all. Travellers who would rather not dive can opt for this alternative water sports activity offered by many a Maldives luxury hotel. It is just as exciting. Here in Maldives, snorkelers glimpse views of sea turtles and even get the chance to watch these delightful sea creatures enjoy a nice picnic on the reef, gobbling up sea grass and algae. While the turtles are a fine sight to behold, they aren't the only species of life you find on and under the island waters. Explorers can meet vast shoals of brightly coloured fishes who move tightly with the waves. The crowds of fish banding together can give the illusion of being inside an enormous aquarium.


Dolphin Spotting

Most tour operators and locals agree that dolphin spotting is a wonderful choice of holiday activity for tourists here in Maldives. The excursions usually happen a little prior to sundown. Spotters go out into the waters trying to catch the sight of a dolphin. It doesn't take long for the captain of the boat excursion to spot a dolphin and the next thing you know, the boat is an audience to a pack of dolphins leaping and playing in the waters and showing off their fantastic aerial skills.


Relaxing Massage

The Maldives Island definitely exudes that romantic feel so it seems almost obvious that a nice, long and invigorating massage is in order whether it be solo travellers or couples visiting the island paradise. This romantic destination encourages you to treat yourself and most travelling families agree that the couple's massage packages are the best to get the steamy pot of passion bubbling. Some of the island's holiday resorts even have a spa within the premises like Naladhu Maldives where guests will be able to walk in for a personal treatment and enjoy some much needed relaxation and rejuvenation. Guests can close their eyes and listen to the soft music as the deft hands of the massage therapists work their way into all those aching areas, relieving them of stress and tension.
