05 Unique things to do in the Maldives – Enjoy More!

The Maldives is paradise, one of the most romantic tropical destinations on the Indian Ocean, but there's more to the archipelago than dreamy island resorts and soft sand beaches. Some experiences there are in fact quite unique as this article explores.


Fish At Night

While deep sea fishing is a fabulous experience in the Maldives, night fishing is a whole new adventure. Leave your luxurious Maldives villas to set off into the arms of the Indian Ocean as night falls; then as the stars come out and the silvery light of the moon is reflected across the waves, you get to fish for the glowing white fish you see. Best of all, some resorts offer the service of cooking your fresh catch on the beach of an isolated island for a romantic meal under the velvety night sky. Kuramathi Maldives is among the many island resorts offering unique adventures across the archipelago.


Explore an Old Wreck

The Maldives is home to some of the world's best dive sites, and while this experience is not to be missed, you get to 'up' the adventure by taking on a wreck dive. There are over 7 wrecks spread across the archipelago for you to explore. Many have now been turned into thriving sanctuaries by marine life and are quite fascinating to discover. The most popular is the 'Victory' wreck while some of the others include, Halaveli wreck, Kuda Giri, the British Loyalty, Fesdu wreck and The Liffey.


How About an Egg Facial?

That's fish eggs and to be more precise Russian caviar. Some spas in the Maldives offer this fancy treat to soothe and nourish your sun damaged skin. The facial done with fish eggs is enhanced with pearl extract to give your skin that added glow and wrinkle treatment.


Dive in a Submarine

While snorkelling and scuba diving will take you up close and personal to the fabulous marine life. You can enjoy the beautiful world below the waves without getting wet. Take the Whale Submarine from Male, departing at various time, you can check the official website, or ask your resort in the Maldives for a schedule. The submarine is first lowered 20 feet for sightings of coral and reef fish, and another 20 feet below the vessel rests on the bottom of the ocean next to a cave. There are lights on the outside enabling you to easily spot the fascinating creatures there, making the 45-minute excursion one of the most thrilling in your life.


See the Glowing Sea!

Head over to Valdoo Island and you can see the glow in the dark beach there. The phenomenon is called bioluminescence a type of chemical reaction which takes place when oxygen disturbs the surface of the water. This beach is the perfect spot for those social media updates and is indeed quite magical to savour under the night sky; definitely, one of the most unique experiences to witness while in the Maldives.
