Top Beach Activities to do in Maldives – Thrills in the Sand & Surf

From soft sandy shorelines fringed by palm trees and bordered by the Indian Ocean, beaches in the Maldives have lots to offer both on the sand and out on the waves.



One of the great things about the Maldives is that you can go snorkelling right from the beach itself and see a wonderful array of marine and coral life. Many resorts have their own house reefs within easy reach of the beach and snorkelling which can be enjoyed by the entire family provides a wonderful opportunity to witness the magical world beneath the waves. While diving in Maldives is for experienced divers or those with the needed certification, snorkelling requires no experience at all and you can soon witness the colourful corals and fantastic fish that call these waters home.


Yoga & Meditation

The beaches in Maldives also provide a wonderful backdrop in which to experience some true serenity. This setting is perfect for those planning on practising yoga or meditation. With island resorts the likes of COMO Cocoa Island, The Maldives also offering a range of holistic wellness programmes one can look forward to some relaxing rejuvenation while on holiday. Be it during sunrise or at sunset, a secluded Maldivian beach offers a tranquil space in which to find that inner bliss.


Beach Sports & Games

The beach is a wonderful place to try a whole array of beach sports and since most of the resorts are on their own private islands, the shoreline is not crowded like it can be at public beaches. So what kind of sports can you enjoy playing at the beach in Maldives; volleyball is always a fun choice though for something where you don't need any equipment you can always try some beach football. If travelling with the kids you can also play many games with them on the shore and there's plenty of space to have a rousing game of tag.


Dining & Picnics

With a soothing soundtrack of the sea, the beach provides the ideal backdrop in which to enjoy a lovely dining or picnic experience. Sometimes the resort you are staying at will pack a special picnic for you on request and you can have a relaxed meal with the family. Beachside dining is also popular in the Maldives and many resorts include this as part of their private dining options. Dining under the stars while being serenaded by the sounds of the sea is enchanting indeed.


Sunset Walks

The beach escapes in the Maldives are perfect for enjoying long strolls on the shore especially during the magical sunsets the country is famous for. Be it with the family taking in gorgeous views or with that special someone, a sunset stroll on the beach provides an unforgettable experience that will no doubt be one of your cherished memories of this island paradise. Stay past till the sun dips below the horizon and witness the sight of a myriad of stars dotting the night sky.
