Must Try Experiences in the Maldives – Unforgettable Holiday Memories

Sun, sand and surf may be some of the key selling points of the Maldives, but this tropical paradise has so much more to offer as well. Here are some experiences one should definitely look to try.



No holiday to the Maldives is complete without trying some snorkelling. The waters here are crystal clear, meaning that you have amazing visibility of the magical world that lies beneath the waves; colourful corals and equally vibrant fish species can be easily spotted and the best thing is that you don't have to swim far from shore to see these sights either.


Spa Treatments

The soothing setting beside the sea offers the ideal backdrop in which to enjoy rejuvenating spa treatments. If you are staying at a Maldives luxury resort then chances are there will be an onsite spa featuring an extensive array of therapies; these can include everything from various kinds of massages to revitalising body wraps and facials. These treatments can vary from Western to traditional Asian therapies such as Ayurveda.


Stay At An Overwater Villa

When it comes to accommodation, one of the best experiences is to stay in an overwater villa perched above the tranquil waters of a lagoon or the ocean. Offered at resorts such as Kandolhu Maldives, such distinctive villas most often come with a private deck, pool and amazing uninterrupted panoramas of the ocean and evening sunsets. Best of all is the direct access you have to the waters below for a swim or some snorkelling whenever you please.


Beach Dining

If you are looking for a magical setting for a memorable meal then the beach is the place to go to when in the Maldives. Most resorts offer private dining on the shore which is perfect for both couples and larger groups; have a fun BBQ that can be shared with friends or family or for that ultimate romantic surprise have the resort setup an intimate beachside dinner under a starlit Maldivian sky.


Sunset Cruise

The Maldives is famed for its truly spellbinding sunsets and one of the best ways in which to enjoy them is to take a sunset cruise. While cruises can be enjoyed on a luxury yacht for that enchanting local touch one can set sail on a traditional boat known as a dhoni. Some cruises incorporate elements like serving champagne so you and that special someone can make a toast to the sunset and your love eternal.



The deeper you head beneath the waters surrounding the Maldives the more underwater treasures you will encounter. One of the best diving destinations in the world, the country is blessed with a plethora of dive sites where one can witness fascinating coral formations and marine life including majestic rays and stealthy sharks. Apart from reefs, one can also explore sunken wrecks which offer an altogether different adventure. If you don't have a diving licence fear not, you can easily find dive centres offering the needed training and PADI certification.
