05 Fun Activities to do in Maldives - Under and Over the Waves!

The very sound of "Maldives" brings into mind a picture of paradise on earth. Here are five of the top fun activities to try out and enjoy when in 'Paradise Maldives".


Explore the Culture

The archipelago nation of Maldives has a proud heritage that spans as far back as 2500 years. Take a culture trip and discover some of its heritage sites. First up is the Old Friday Mosque or the Hukuru Miskiiy, that is the most ornate and oldest mosques in the city of Malé. The mosque is built out of coral stone and features many elaborate carvings.

Next up, visit the Mulee-aage Palace which was once the royal residence of a sheikh but is now used as the official presidential residence. Then visit the National Musuem of Malé and discover the remnants of the glorious past consisting of weapons, pottery, coinage...etc.


Get a Luxurious Spa Treatment

Maldives is the ultimate destination to relax and rejuvenate. So take some time off and treat yourself to a luxurious pampering session because you know you deserve it. Some of the best spas can be found at the high-end resorts like Cinnamon Hakuraa Huraa Maldives, but if you're thinking that's way out of your budget, no need to fret because there are plenty of Maldives resort deals focused on spa treatments at attractive prices.


Adventure Above the Waters

The warm waters of Maldives are a playground for adventure enthusiasts. Talk to your resort and book a package that lets you engage in a variety of watersports such as boogie boarding, surfing, windsurfing, kayaking and canoeing to name a few. Book a sunset cruise and spot whales and dolphins frolicking about as you witness the gorgeous Maldivian sunset.


A World of Wonders Under the Waves

Maldives is home to a spectacular range of marine wildlife that can be discovered through exciting snorkeling and diving expeditions. Some of the must visit diving sites in Maldives include the likes of the Manta Point, HP Reef, Banana Reef and South Ari Atoll, to name a few. In addition to the colorful coral reefs you will come across a breathtaking range of wildlife such as kaleidoscopic schools of fish, sharks, manta rays, whale sharks and sea turtles.


Help Save Precious Corals

Have fun and feel good at the same time! The beautiful coral reefs of Maldives are in threat of destruction thanks to global warming and human interference. Some of the resorts here, promote coral conservation to their guests by offering them a chance to adopt a coral. You get to "plant" the coral yourself, and even after you leave Maldives you'll get regular updates telling you how "your coral" is doing. Now, doesn't that sound like one amazing holiday!
