Best Picks of Excursions in Maldives – Remarkable Experiences in an Earthly Paradise

The idyllic Maldives are always an appealing holiday destination. Visitors to the Maldives will also have the opportunity to undertake a number of excursions that will strike their interest.


Island Hopping

Since the Maldives is an archipelago of a myriad of islands you will have the opportunity to visit a number of these islands during your visit to the Maldives. If you choose to visit one of the inhabited islands you will have the chance to experience the culture of the Maldives and observe the way of life of the natives at first hand. Visiting one of the local villages is sure to be a memorable experience that you will always treasure. You will also have the opportunity to view the local handicrafts and arts with the option of purchasing one of these creations to take back home at the end of your holiday.


Visit to Male

Male, the bustling capital city of the Maldives offers a host of interesting attractions for the visitor. Although the city is not of great size, it contains one-third of the population of the Maldives. Unlike the other islands in the Maldives, you will see that Male features multi-storey buildings, well-constructed roads, shopping complexes and other modern characteristics. As you might expect you will also encounter a number of fascinating cultural attractions in Male, such as the Friday Mosque and Hukuru Miskiiy, two well-known mosques in the Maldivian capital. The city also boasts an array of dining options ranging from fine dining restaurants to modest cafes.


Fishing Excursions

Fishing is one of the economic mainstays of the Maldive Islands, whilst recreational fishing is a popular activity amongst visitors to the islands. Fishing during the daytime is typically conducted in the deeper reaches of the sea removed from the local atolls. On the other hand, night fishing is usually undertaken amidst the reefs during the hour of sunset which is regarded as the optimal time for this endeavour. Many kinds of fishing experiences may be enjoyed in the Maldives, such as big game fishing, spin fishing and line trawling. A choice of accommodation that you could consider from where you can enjoy fishing and other tourist attractions in the Maldives would be the pleasingly located Adaaran Resorts.


Whale and Dolphin Watching

Animal lovers interested in marine mammals such as whales and dolphins will have the opportunity to undertake excursions that will take you to these entrancing creatures of the sea. Both dolphins and whales are readily spotted in the waters off the Maldives with a number of engrossing varieties of these marine creatures regularly to be observed here. Kinds of dolphins that you will encounter in the Maldives include bottlenose dolphins, spinner dolphins, spotted dolphins, Risso's dolphins and others. Whales to be spotted in these waters include pilot whales, blue whales, sperm whales, Bryde's whales and Cuvier's beaked whales amongst others.


Castaway Experiences

If you truly desire to enjoy something approaching the authentic Robinson Crusoe experience, you will have the opportunity to savour seclusion and tranquillity on an uninhabited island. You will have the chance to spend quality leisure time with your partner or family on one of the pristine uninhabited islets in the Maldives. You will be able to select either a boat or seaplane excursion that will take you to your chosen hideaway island where you will have the opportunity to relax and unwind amidst the shimmering clear waters and picturesque tropical scenery. You will also be able to include specially prepared picnics, jet skiing and snorkelling in your castaway experience.
