Top 6 Activities To Try In The Maldives – How Many Have You Done?

The Maldives are a breath taking collection of over 1,200 islands and you may be surprised at just how many activities there are that can keep you busy and entertained during your vacation!



Although it may seem rather obvious, snorkelling should definitely be done by anyone and everyone who visits Maldives. If you can't swim, it is highly recommended that you either take a crash course on swimming or ask your hotel for a life jacket which you could use to help you stay afloat as you explore the wonderful world of the sea. Your Maldives luxury resort may have an in house reef located around the island, which makes snorkelling so much easier as you could snorkel any time of the day! However, if there is no house reef, you'll have to take a short boat ride to the nearest reef. While snorkelling, you'll be able to an array of colourful fish and other marine creatures. Do keep in mind not to get too close to these creatures, as some of them can get territorial and have been known to attack swimmers!



Another obvious activity to partake in, but nevertheless should be included! If you have your PADI license, what are you waiting for?! Don those flippers and diving suit and get to the nearest dive site. If you're staying at properties such as Kandolhu Maldives, you'll be able to go on three dives during the day, including night dives! However, even if you don't have your license, the Dive School at this resort also offers beginner courses which you can enrol in before heading out to the big blue! The nearest and best dive sites are located in the North and South Ari Atoll, namely, Hafsa Thila, Himendhoo Thila, Fesdu Wreck, Maalhos Thila and Bathalaa Thila.


Sunset Cruise

Sunset cruises, although enjoyable by anyone, are quite perfect for the romantic couple. Do check with your hotel or resort whether they offer a sunset cruise on a traditional dhoni or any other type of vessel. If you're lucky enough, you'll also be able to spot pods of dolphins swimming along the boat!


Stand Up Paddle boarding

Stand Up Paddle boarding is a great way to enjoy the beautiful waters of the Maldives at your own pace. It's also a great alternative to surfing!


Private Picnics

Another ideal romantic thing to do when you're in Maldives is to have a private picnic – on a deserted island! It cannot get more private than this! Check whether your resort offers the option to do so and get ready for the experience of a last time. Tip: it's a great way to pop the BIG question, if you're looking for some over the top, romantic ideas!


Island Hopping

With over 1,200 islands in the Maldives, over half of them still remain uninhabited; which makes it ideal for visitors to jet off to some of these islands bringing out their inner explorer! Pack a picnic or go snorkelling around these private islands for an experience of a lifetime.
