The Best Family Activities In Maldives – Fun For The Whole Family

The islands of Maldives are a great destination for couples and families in search of a fun and exciting holiday in the sun. Here are some of the best activities for your family to partake in.



As many of the resorts in Maldives are located in close proximity to colourful coral gardens, your family can enjoy watching plenty of fish swimming through the crystal clear blue waters! Bring your own snorkelling gear or rent it from resort and spend hours simply watching the beautiful marine life. The water is so clear that even little ones who can't swim can get a glimpse of the marine creatures while just standing in one place. Be careful not to step on or touch any of the corals or fish as it can be fatal to them. Some fish might even attack if you get too close to them, so remember to always keep a safe distance during your snorkelling adventures.


Dolphin cruises

A favourite with kids and adults, a dolphin cruise is an entertaining and fun excursion to embark on! Watch as a pod of friendly, playful dolphins swim along your boat as your cheery little one shrieks in excitement. Remember not to throw anything over board though – dolphins are precious mammals and should be protected!



As the waters of Maldives are calm and crystal clear, it's completely safe for anyone to swim here. The waters around the resort are shallow enough to stand and its completely possible to wade in a few meters with the water level only reaching your waist! Kids can play with the gentle water or build sandcastles on the white shores.


Water sports

Some resorts offer a range of water sports for families such as banana boat rides, tube rides, canoeing, etc. These activities are ideal for families travelling with youngsters. If your kids old enough and can swim on their own, scuba diving might be an interesting and exciting thing to do! You'll be able to see whale sharks, sea turtles and rays!


Good to know

Depending on your resort of choice, you'll even be able get babysitting services to look after your young one while you and your partner enjoy a day in the spa or a romantic sunset cruise. Most family friendly resorts have a child oriented food menu that's not just healthy, but fun to eat as well. If you're travelling with tiny tots, do remember to pack everything necessary from favourite blankets to clean diapers.


Indoor activities

In Maldives, family resorts usually have a dedicated kids club with a range of activities for the little ones to engage and be entertained with, from board games to arts and crafts. With the assistance of agencies such as Maldives Resorts Club, you'll be able to find the most suitable accommodation for the family- which is sure to take care of everyone's needs! Some other indoor games also include billiards and table tennis to name a few.
