4 unusual things to do in the Maldives - The Appeal in the Unusual!

The Maldives is one of the most popular places for romantic places and the like, but it's also home to unusual but very intriguing experiences, let's look at some of them.


Whale shark diving

Generally, when swimming in the sea with sharks, you are basically lowered into the ocean from within a cage. The Maldives however completely changes this experience. While in the area of the South Ari Atoll, you will come across an entirely distinctive experience. This features one of the gorgeous creatures in the word, which is the whale shark. These magnificent creatures have the capacity to grow up to 40 feet in length. Whale sharks can also weigh up to an impressive 21 metric tonnes. While most statistics are daunting, these creatures are non-aggressive and are known to be quite submissive and frisky in nature.


Deserted islands

One of the greatest things about the entirety of Maldives is that over 800 of its thousand-plus islands are currently deserted. This makes finding a romantic getaway for you and your loved one all the more simple. When travelling to Addu City, you will come across Body Hajara, where designing your very own unique 'Robinson Crusoe' kind of experience is nothing but possible. Being encompassed by nothing but the vast Indian Ocean all around you is an absolute pleasure, and will make you feel like you're the sole survivor on this planet. If you're looking for a great Maldives Holiday Hotel while you visit the country, there's so many to choose from, such as Kuramathi Maldives for instance.


Underwater bedroom

While the country boasts an impressive range of fabulous hotels in prestigious settings, you can check out a one of a kind experience for one of the days during your stay. This is the underwater bedroom experience that is featured on the distant Rangali Island. Located 5 meters below the surface, you will be able to sleep right below the sea and spend the night amidst the marine life. Making your way through the gorgeous spiral staircase, you will have the amazing experience of waking up and witnessing one of the most special sights on this planet. During the day, the underwater bedroom is transformed into a restaurant known as 'Ithaa' and seats 12 guests. While spending a night here is a costly venture at £8,000 for the opportunity, you can simply visit for a meal.


Submarine diving

Male, the busy and wondrous capital of the Maldives has an array of multicoloured skyscrapers that fill up its extraordinary skyline, however, in reality, the country's most sought-after and breathtaking sights are all found below the waves. This is an amazing opportunity for those who want to stay dry while experiencing the same extraordinary sights that divers themselves are witness to. The Whale submarine goes an impressive 150m under the sea, offering a marvellous sight of the ocean for those who do not dive. This is an excellent way to observe the majestic creatures that call the Indian Ocean home. The submarine's cabins are air-conditioned, allowing you to discover all the wonders and sights at the depths of the sea in comfort.
