5 of the best things to do in Maldives – Activities the Maldives is famous for

The Maldives is the dream destination of every traveller; villas looking over the sea, sunsets, beaches, spa treatments, watersports and the cuisine detail Maldives popularity as a travel destination.


Island hopping

For those wanting a comprehensive tourist experience, island hopping is the way to achieve that. There's a large community, and many locals travel to resort islands for their jobs. If you are staying at a private Island like Niyama Maldives, make sure you book yourself on a tour to visit nearby communities. Those visiting these settlements need to adhere to the country's dress code; being an Islamic country, the Maldives observes a strict dress code policy – when visiting, if you are a female, wear something that covers your upper arms and knees.


Dolphin spotting

This is a great sport among those who visit the Maldives. If you are lodged at one of the resorts Maldives, you can get them to arrange a dolphin watching excursion for you. If you seize the hour just before the sunset, you can see pods of dolphins pelting out of the deep ocean. You might have witnessed dolphins having their fun before, but in the Maldives, you get to see the most playful and energetic sort. They will rise out of the water and plunge right into it putting on a great show for the spectators.



The beach destination offers its visitors a myriad of watersports. Snorkelling is one of the best watersports you can enjoy while touring the Maldives. If you are not a great diver, this is your alternative way of witnessing the enchanting underwater world. You won't be alone in your sport; you'll be joined by turtles and schools of colourful fish. You don't need to be a watersports expert to enjoy snorkelling. However, if you are an aspiring snorkeler, there are places that would help make your aspirations come true.



Yet another watersport the Maldives is acclaimed for; parasailing is a must-do for anyone touring the Maldives. That said, if you are acrophobic, this might not be suited for you, but if you can overcome that fear, you'll be treated with a thrilling, unforgettable experience. It'll be a quick boat ride, and you'll be parachuted a considerable height into the air. The trick is not to look down at the boat; it'll look minuscule which is bound to unsettle you. You'll be up in the air for good fifteen minutes, and while you are airborne, the great ocean underneath your feet will have cumulated into one picture.


Spa treatments

The Maldives is positively the best place to go for a spa treatment. Most resorts and hotels boast spa centres of their own; that is, most of the time, how you can treat yourself to a spa treatment in the Maldives. Getting a Balinese massage is one of the best things you can do in the Maldives. While you are at it, you can also indulge yourself with a manicure and pedicure.
