6 Best water sports to try in the Maldives - Exhilarating thrills for the adrenaline junkies

When you travel to the Maldives, enjoying the stunning range of water sports that the islands offer is truly a must! The article below gives details about the popular water sports here that you can definitely consider trying out!



The world that lies concealed by the shimmering waves of the ocean possesses a beauty that can take your very breath away! Maldives islands are surrounded by stunning coral reefs where sea creatures, both large and small can be quite easily spotted. Catch a glimpse of their astounding beauty as you snorkel in the Maldives and give yourself the experience to remember. It is an activity that doesn't require a lot of experience too. If you are an apprehensive novice, you can limit yourself to the shallow waters instead of venturing out into the deep seas.


2. Scuba diving

Those who love to lose themselves in the eerie charm of the ocean depths can enjoy scuba diving here in the Maldives. It certainly will be an experience that you will never forget. You will find manta rays, reef sharks and turtles swimming in the sea, enjoying life as they know it. However, you should always respect their boundaries and avoid getting too close to them. Places like Lhaviyani, North and South Male, Vaavu, Gaafu, and Meemu provide sensational diving opportunities.


3. Surfing

Adrenaline junkies looking for the perfect way to indulge in a bracing adventure can opt to surf during their tour in the Maldives. The best time for surfing here is considered to be during the Southern Hemisphere winter which starts in the month of March and lasts until the end of October. Southern atolls provide the best surf breaks in the months of March and April while the Northern and Central atolls become popular among surfers between May and October. You can stay at any surfing resort in the Maldives and enjoy a truly unforgettable holiday experience. Do consider staying at reputed resorts like The Westin Maldives Miriandhoo Resort to treat yourself to a glorious vacation that is complete with hours of surfing.


4. Jet skiing

Feel the rush and fury of the waves as you ride your strident watercraft across the oceans and enjoy truly a mind-blowing experience! Jet skiing is yet another popular form of recreation in the Maldives that hardcore thrill-seekers enjoy. The pleasure that this sport gives you cannot be described! There are plenty of water sports centres in the islands that provide the facilities for those who like to experience the thrills of jet skiing.



After the overwhelming excitement that the more intense forms of water sports provide, you might naturally yearn to enjoy a more serene experience! Kayaking is a perfect way to appreciate the calming beauty of the seas. It doesn't require a lot of skills and experience too. A kayak allows you to sit very low in the water and enjoy its refreshing loveliness to your heart's content. Kayaking in the sunset hour when the turquoise waters turn gold is a delightfully charming way to end a perfect day!
