Top 7 things to Do in the Maldives - The Ultimate Summer Destination

The Maldives is synonymous with that perfect summer vacations, sunbathing and water activities. Here are things to do in the Maldives and enjoy your holiday to its fullest potential.


Island Hopping

It may or may not come as a surprise that the Maldives consists of more than 1000 islands. Most of them are in close proximity to each other and a few minutes away in a speedboat. Some islands are called resort islands and are private to that particular Maldives luxury resort only, while some islands are inhabited with the locals. Therefore, to venture out into the local community and immerse in their culture and food, do visit the local islands. Since the Maldives is an Islamic country, while visiting the local islands, you must abide by the rules and regulations; no indecent clothing, no drinking in public and no public displays of affection!


Stay in a water villa

Imagine being able to stay at a villa that is almost like a little island for yourself; surrounded by the blue waters, waves crashing on to the stairs of the villa, watching the sun rays change colour and paint the ocean in its various shades, all from just the comfort of your own private villa. It is definitely an out of the world experience. Should you feel like taking a dip in the ocean, all you have to do is go to the balcony and jump into the ocean! You could have that movie star lifestyle for at least one day!



The Maldives is known to be one of the best destinations for surfing and rightly so. Don't be afraid if you are an amateur, many resorts, like Naladhu Private Island Maldives, offer basic training for those who want to take over the world, one wave at a time. Everyone, regardless of their levels of ability, will have a challenging and exhilarating experience.


Stand up paddle boarding

If you are still not convinced about your surfing abilities, maybe this would be a better option. This would allow you to be floating on the calmer shallow waters and explore the lagoons around. It is also a great workout; why waste time in a gym when you can work out and still be a tourist at the same time?


Dinner by the ocean

If you are with your special someone and want to celebrate an anniversary or simply celebrate the fact you are on a holiday, a private dinner next to the ocean sounds like one of those moments written in a romantic novel. Write your own little chapter in your journey of life. Raise your glasses and clink them together to a great holiday, while the sun sets over the horizon, marking the end of yet another special day.


Fly over the islands

Book a scenic flight that will take you over the many Atolls for a beautiful bird's eye view of the scattered islands. Appreciate the various blue shades of the sea, the powdery sand beaches and the isolated islands.


Watch the Dolphins

Dolphin excursions are also a popular activity in The Maldives and this is where you might have the chance to spot so many flipping and diving into the waters. It is almost as if they sense the tourists and their excitement, and they put on a show for you!
