5 Cool Things to do in Maldives – Experience the excitement in the Maldives

The Maldives is one of the most sought after tropical destinations in the world not only because of the golden sandy beaches but also because of the different excursions.


Island hopping

The Maldives is made of more than 1100 islands but only about 200 islands are inhabited. One of the exciting things about the country is that, since there are so many uninhabited islands, most of the resorts are built on individual islands. The resorts or hotels have their own private beaches and land, which makes it a delightful experience to stay in them. Adaaran Select Meedhupparu would have a different setup and structure when it comes to the resort, food and even entertainment. Each resort interprets their structure and holidays for the clients in different ways, so going island hopping to experience the different atolls is one of the most exciting things to do in the Maldives.


Shopping at outdoor markets

Shopping is an exciting part of travelling. Being able to shop for clothes, accessories, jewellery and other exciting products is a rewarding experience especially when you are in another country. If you have been to the outdoor markets in Asia you can get an idea of the sort of markets that take place in the Maldives. Different vendors come together in different locations, in order to sell their products. Some of the vendors have similar products such as trinkets and handmade jewellery but the designs are different even though the craft may be the same. Most of the vendors have handmade products that are locally sourced and made by them.



Surrounded by the Indian Ocean, the Maldives is a great location to go and spend time with the marine world hidden away by the ocean’s blanket. There are so many different atolls in the Maldives and each atoll is home to different marine life. Corral reefs can be witnessed from most islands but you will only be able to see manta rays, tortoise and other exotic animals in some islands. If you would love to experience the feeling of being able to swim with these fish there are many locations and instructors who are able to assist you.



Surfing is for those who like to feel the heartbeat racing along with the adrenaline rush as the blood starts pumping. Those who love riding the waves love feeling the warm sun on their skin and feeling the freedom as they soar through the waves on their surfboards. Even if you are interested to try surfing for the first time there are locations where you can have your first few surfing classes and then try to ride your first wave. There are locations where you can borrow the boards and the other gear that you need and do not have to worry if you have not brought yours to the Maldives. Beach villas have trained staff that can assist you in the excursion.



If you miss out the opportunity to lay down under the sun with the warm wind brushing against your skin while you read a book or sip a cool drink, then you have missed out one of the coolest things to do in the Maldives.
