5 Ways to explore the underwater world in the Maldives - Like never before!

While there are plenty of land adventures to be had in the Maldives, there are many ways to enjoy the richly biodiverse and stunningly beautiful underwater world of this tropical paradise.


Having a meal at a restaurant underwater

Meals with a view are always enjoyable, but perhaps the ultimate view while dining is that offered at an underwater restaurant, which the Maldives has plenty of. From the SEA Restaurant that serves fine wine with your lavish meal underwater, to the Subsix Restaurant which can even be booked for private weddings and functions, or to the Ithaa Undersea Restaurant which is the first all-glass restaurant of this type, there are a whole host of options to choose from, though they all tend to be a bit expensive. For a once in a lifetime experience, the cost is certainly worth being paid; a meal on land certainly cannot compare with the jaw-dropping beauty of an underwater restaurant, whether during the day when the water is turned a bright blue from the tropical sun, or during a beautiful sunset.


Take a ride on a glass bottom boat

A glass bottom boat is a great way to see the underwater beauty of the Maldives without even stepping into the water! It offers a glimpse of the beautiful coral reefs dotted around the Maldives, and even someone who cannot swim can appreciate the natural wonder. Families with young children, the elderly, and those who cannot swim will find that a glass-bottomed boat is an easy way to ensure that all are included in this underwater exploration. An experienced guide will assist in finding the best spots and views to see all that dwells below the surface.


Go snorkelling

Using a diving mask and a snorkel, snorkelling takes an underwater explorer on an adventure to see the beautiful world under the sea without going too deep into the water. The Maldives, with clear and calm waters above coral reefs that are full of aquatic animal life, is a very popular snorkelling destination. The warm tropical waters make the Maldives the perfect home for very many species, many of which can be seen during a snorkelling trip. It is a great way to explore the underwater world off the coast of the Maldives.


Take a diving trip

For those who wish to go a little deeper into the water, the Maldives offers incredible diving experiences. The reefs are full of tropical fish, eels, rays, sharks, and hundreds of weird and wonderful types of coral thriving in the warm waters. Be sure to go during the right season, to avoid low visibility due to animals like plankton in the water and unfavourable weather. Diving in the Maldives is a great way to explore the underwater worlds near this tropical country, for both amateur and professional divers alike.


Stay at a private island resort

Holidays in Maldives are mostly centred around the beach, so staying close to the beach is undoubtedly the best option. Guests can wake up to an ocean view, spend all day on a beach, and hear the calming sounds of the waves as they fall asleep. A private island resort like Kurumba Maldives will allow guests to enjoy the beach with plenty of privacy. Having the ocean just a step away by staying at a beachside resort is the perfect way to explore the underwater world in the Maldives while still enjoying a completely luxurious holiday.
