Top 8 things to do in the Maldives with your kids - A summer dream come true

The Maldives is one of the most sought-after countries by families, honeymooners and even backpackers. Here are things to do when you travel with children.



The Maldives is one of the best places to snorkel because the water is just so clear making visibility a breeze. There are plenty of spots to explore, some of which are kid-friendly and caters to all levels. The children would be absolutely delighted to spot the colourful fish and the magnificent corals.


Catch a fish

Join the local fishermen and go on a fishing journey with your family. Learn the art of fishing and teach the children how grateful they should be for the fishermen who work tirelessly to give us food. Let the kids hold the fishing line and try their luck.


Indulge in a luxury resort

It is not always that one gets the chance to indulge in luxury, that too in the Maldives. Family resort is certainly something worth considering. You will be spoilt for choice- there are resorts that are in inhabited islands while some resorts, like Reethi Faru Resort, is located on its own little private island! Catch the best deals and enjoy the amenities it has to offer. This most certainly would complete your holiday experience.


Sandbank Swimming

This would be a surreal experience for the little ones and a great way to introduce swimming on the beach. With shallow shores, soft sandbars and warm water, it is completely safe for everyone. Make a day out of this experience and celebrate the little victories while watching the sunset.


Dolphin Cruises

Another activity that is bound to pique the interest of the children is Dolphin watching. Every child loves Dolphins- they are one of the friendliest marine creatures and with their bottle noses, look like a cartoon. Go on a Dolphin cruise and spot the different species of dolphins performing acrobatic tricks!


Island Hopping

Rent a boat and go island hopping. Did you know that the Maldives consists of more than 1000 little islands? This is a great opportunity to show the children the island life, the coral reefs and its importance to the ecosystem, the marine life and also spark a sense of adventure. Children learn quite fast and are always willing to learn.


Collect souvenirs

Take a stroll on the soft white sandy beaches and look out for seashells and corals. Collect as many as you want as souvenirs for yourself and friends back at home. These shells can be easily turned into keyrings or fridge magnets, making them more practical or simply tucked away in a travel box or scrapbooks.


Visit a local

The locals are very friendly people and would be happy to accommodate your family for at least one meal. Learn about their local cuisines, traditions and help them cook. Share the meal and laughter. As a courtesy, give them a gift to remember this moment by.
