8 Best Things to do in Maldives- The bigger picture of Maldives

The first thing that pops into everyone's mind when thinking of the Maldives is simply the pampering that awaits onboard a luxury water bungalow feasting on the spectacular views of the Indian Ocean. But here is a list of 8 more best things to do in the Maldives to top off your stay.


Scenic Flight

See the magical hues of the Indian Ocean's lapping waters as you fly over the Maldives and its scenic atolls. By default, some of the resorts can only be approached via a seaplane ride, but in case not, do not forget to book a readily available scenic flight over the Maldives Islands to take in the splendour of these tiny islands bit by bit!


Go Scuba Diving

Among the many other attractions in Maldives, it is also known as a chief scuba diving destination across the whole world and you must give it a try for sure! The rates for the sessions are extremely reasonably priced and regardless of whether you need a discovery dive or any other regular dive options. The spot-on visibility of the sparkly blue waters allows for excellent visibility of the renowned stingrays, whale sharks and even sea turtles. The warm waters of Maldives are forever as inviting as could be; so inviting that you might not want to leave!



If not scuba-diving, definitely have a go at the incredible snorkelling experience of Maldives. The reefs of Maldives are a stroke of untouched beauty and getting a good look at the reefs don't even require you to go deeper either. Witness the harmony of schools of colourful little swimmers down under flocking in patterns around the bigger sea turtles and the like gliding peacefully across.



Top surfers from around the world come down to the Maldives to get on its awesome breaks that are much less crowded than the average surf hotspots in the world. It could best be described as a stop in the pro-circuit but worry not because the islands offer ample shacks that are dedicated to surfing lessons for amateurs.


Stand Up Paddle Boarding

Another exploratory water activity that is ideal for the adventurous is standup-paddleboarding. The calm and shallow waters frolicking around most islands of the Maldives make for an ideal spot to try this out. As you paddle away, the water beneath you is so transparent that you could just as well see the colourful fish swimming in circles just as if you were underwater swimming alongside them!


Dolphin Spotting

Spotting these regal creatures is one of the top activities that the Maldives has to offer. Luxury hotels the likes of Niyama Maldives offer fabulous activities such as dolphin spotting over a sunset sail! The playful creatures and their acrobatic performances in free thought is a sight to see in the backdrop of the drooping sun sinking into the faraway horizon!


Island Hopping

As resorts of the Maldives are generally located on private islands most often than not, there is a possibility of missing out on the local communities. However, the experience of the local communities is not one to be missed. Housing some of the most hospitable crowds that destinations have to offer, a peek into their traffic-free speedboat driven island life is definitely a must-see!


Balinese Massage

The Maldives has been since the beginning of time a lover's paradise, perfect for a getaway with your significant other. So why not spike up the romance in your getaway with a couple's massage to knead away those knots and pamper yourself to your heart's content?
