05 Ways to Explore Maldives' Underwater World – Below the Waves is Just as Gorgeous

The Maldivian archipelago is a gorgeous sight; delve below the waves and you are rewarded with an equally stunning world. Using this magical world to the max Maldives offers many options; as listed.


Dine in an Underwater Restaurant – The Experience is Surreal

The underwater restaurants in the Maldives are quite ingenious. Glass panelled walls and even a glass panelled ceiling offer a magical experience as you dine in classy settings surrounded by the bounty of the Indian Ocean. The setting is absolutely perfect for a romantic night out; especially if you wish to impress that special someone and experiencing this unique feature is one of the best aspects of a holiday on the archipelago.


Island Resort Stays are Heavenly

There is no limit to the luxury and stunning experiences on offer at the fabulous Maldives resorts. Each luxury resort like Kurumba Maldives occupies its own island. Surrounded by white sand beaches and the glistening ocean, these resorts offer varied accommodation options. Choose from pool villas surrounded by tropical gardens, over water villas where you sleep at sea and even underwater rooms that have giant manta rays circling overhead. The spas are absolutely blissful and offer a range of holistic treatments in tropical settings that immediately set your mind at ease. The resorts ensure you experience island life to the max making holidays in Maldives a truly tropical getaway.


Enjoy Glass Bottomed Boat Rides – Explore Below the Waves while Staying Dry

The glass bottomed boats are ideal for those of you hankering for a view of the ocean depths - without getting wet. Fitted with glass panels these boats sail across the coral reefs rewarding passengers with sights of colourful corals and fish.


Snorkelling for the Entire Family

Snorkelling most certainly is one of the most popular watersports in the Maldives. The only skill required is the ability to swim while equipment is limited to just flippers and a snorkel. In most instances, you can simply swim out to the nearest house reef from your resort's beach while snorkel safaris are best for a thorough scout of the best locations on the archipelago. The snorkel safaris are generally conducted by the resorts and explore the hidden bays and virgin coral reefs scattered across the islands.


Diving in the Maldives is a Profound Experience

The Maldives is one of the world's best dive locations; the place was made famous by the likes of Banana Reef which is still one of the archipelago's top sites for scuba diving. A varied experience is on hand where you explore underwater caves, swim throughs and hidden tunnels; the marine life is amazing with whale sharks and giant manta rays creating an impressive outlook. Schools of coral fish and reef sharks are available in plenty while the odd sea turtle and friendly dolphin pods will add to your list of memories. Diving in the Maldives is for the professional as well as a novice with PADI certificate classes helping visitors as young as 10 years exploring the depths of the fascinating Indian Ocean.
