5 best things to do in the Maldives - Tropical sun and fun

There is no better place to enjoy a long holiday under the tropical sun, than in the Maldives. The sun, sand, sea, and seafood of Maldives are always at their peak, ready to be experienced by visitors.


Beaches, the sunny beaches!

When you see the crystalline azure waters gushing gently to the shores covered in powdery white sand that is enough reason to be there. Among the top five beaches in the world, Maldives is surely fortunate to be surrounded by such splendour. The beaches in the Maldives are not only for a cooling swim but it is also the perfect set up for several water activities including diving, snorkelling, surfing, etc. Those who prefer not to get into the water can enjoy activities such as whale and dolphin watching, boating, fishing, etc.


Try a new water sport

Learning new watersports is one of the best Maldives things to do. Apart from diving and snorkelling, you can experience some adrenaline-pumping activities such as kite surfing, water skiing, windsurfing, kayaking catamaran sailing, and wakeboarding. Water-skiing, kneeboarding, and ski tubes are exciting water activities suitable for most ages, therefore, you need not be a professional to have some water adventure during your holiday. If you stay at a luxury resort such as Finolhu Baa Atoll Maldives, then trying a new watersport is not a difficult task.


Go Diving

The warm seas of Maldives are not world-famous for just nothing. The breathtaking formation of three thousand coral reefs and free-flowing tides has made it one of the world's best diving coral reefs to explore. There is nothing but beauty in these pristine waters that surround the archipelago. The marvellous underwater scenery will just blow you away; with over thousand species of fish and other aquatic creatures that inhabit here every minute you spend inside the water will be a memorable one. Banana Reef and Mushimasmingali Thila are two awesome spots for diving. Selecting a dive spot depends on your level of proficiency in diving whether you are a fresher or experienced!


Mingle with the locals

Once you settle down, do a bit of exploring – not the island but the people. The typical Maldivian lifestyle and fishing is an integral part of local life that runs in their blood. To experience ordinary Maldivian life you must start by visiting an inhabited island – and there are plenty here! You might find certain islands to be modern however you still find typical fishing villages where everyone gathers in a Holhuashi to unwind after a busy day in the sea. The locals are friendly and it's easy to communicate since most of them speak English.


Enjoy the culinary pleasures

The culinary variation in the Maldives is diverse. Offering a wide variety of local and international cuisines visitors will always be spoiled for choice in terms of dining. You get a great variety of seafood dishes so make sure you taste at least a few during your stay. Local food is mainly prepared with seafood, coconut and of course a variety of local spices. Apart from tasting the local cuisines, you should also try your hand at preparing them.
