6 Things to Do in Maldives – Experiencing a Magical Tropical Paradise

The Maldives is one of the world's most admired holiday destinations. In these islands, you will also find many interesting things to do that will capture the imagination of the discerning visitor.


Take a Secluded Picnic at a Sandbank

The country's entrancing islands will be a great place to enjoy a private picnic with your partner or family. The Maldives has secured a firm reputation as an outstanding setting for romance and intimacy. A secluded picnic is sure to be a memorable experience as you enjoy a selection of treats amidst the soft sand, stunning natural scenery and balmy weather. Delectable picnic treats like Maldivian specialties, cheeses and lobster will be excellent choices for your exotic picnic.


Snorkelling and Diving

The Maldives is renowned as an outstanding environment for snorkelling and diving. Beneath the surface of the shimmering clear waters of the Maldives, you will have the opportunity to encounter a host of interesting marine denizens like schools of brightly coloured fish, tortoises, reef sharks and perhaps a ray or two. If you choose to undertake a deep diving excursion you may have the chance to swim in proximity to creatures like hammerhead sharks and whales. The nutrient-rich waters surrounding the islands attract an array of entrancing sea denizens that will draw the interest of the diver. Travel management organizations the likes of Maldives Resorts Club can help you find Maldives all inclusive resorts where you can enjoy such activities.


Take a Sunset Cruise on a Dhoni

All members of the family will enjoy a sunset cruise on a dhoni, a traditional sailing vessel used in the Maldives. On one of these cruises, you will have the opportunity to enjoy the idyllic scenery and relax in the refreshing sea breezes whilst your children try to spot schools of playful dolphins. If you are lucky you may even have the chance to spot a school of spinner dolphins consisting of hundreds of individuals, cavorting and somersaulting beside your boat.


Experience the Native Culture

The local people of the Maldives have an interesting culture that is quite distinct from any other culture on the globe. In the Maldives, you will have the opportunity to visit one of the local villages where you can experience at first hand the simple and traditional lifestyle of the native people. The traditional lifestyle of the Maldivians is a world apart from the environment of a tourist resort; by visiting a local village you will gain an insight into a culture very different from your own. You will also have the chance to admire the fascinating artworks and handicrafts produced by local artisans.


Savour the Local Foods

Whilst you visit one of the local islands, make it a point to sample the traditional Maldivian cuisine. An excellent choice would be the breakfast dish known as mas huni, which consists of finely diced tuna, coconut, onion and chilli, served with freshly prepared roshi, the local flatbread. If you have had enough of the same old continental breakfast, this zesty meal is sure to capture your imagination. Fresh, tangy and spicy, this breakfast dish will gear you up for a rewarding day.


Experience the Boduberu

Your memorable trip to the Maldives would not be complete without experiencing a performance of the local Boduberu, which is the name used for the distinctive Maldivian entertainment featuring rhythmic drumming, dancing and singing. This music is loud and captivating, creating a unique ambience during a Boduberu performance. You will have the opportunity to experience one of these fascinating cultural performances at one of the inhabited islands of the Maldives.
