5 Must-Do Water Activities in the Maldives – Thrilling Watersports for a Typical Maldivian Holiday

The tropical island is surrounded by the Indian Ocean which makes watersports one of the country's gifts. If you are planning a beach trip to the Maldives, here are five watersports you can try.

1

Snorkelling

This is the easiest water activity anyone can try. You don't have to have a great skill set of swimming as it is a simple sport prepped up with snorkelling gear. There are establishments where you can receive necessary training before plunging into the great ocean, and there are also resorts that'd make all the arrangements for you – if you are lodged at luxury holiday Maldives including the likes of Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas, surfing is an activity you'll inadvertently enjoy.

Surfing

Your holiday to the Maldives wouldn't be complete if you don't opt for a surfing trip. The best time to visit if you want to surf is the period between April and October. The best sites are Thulusdhoo Islands and Baa Atoll, although you can try surfing at any Maldivian beach. There are instructors whom you can contact for training, and the swimming proficiency shouldn't be overlooked.

3

Fishing

This is the most satisfying watersport that there is, and it is rewarding too. You can keep the fish you catch and make a nice meal out of it. Big game fishing is an activity where you encounter exotic fish, and many resorts are famous for providing its guests with the experience. The best time for fishing is between November and March, and there are agencies that would take you to locations as well. You don't need to have any sort of swimming skills, and the average hourly cost varies between USD 80 and USD 100.

4

Banana Boating

You'll be strapped to a long narrow boat as you take a ride through the rippling waves of the Indian Ocean. You'll be tightly secured to the boat, so there's no chance of falling off the boat as it takes its rapid, unexpected turns. Banana boating is a group activity you can enjoy with your family and a must-do as well. The most popular spots for the activity are Ari Atolls, Kaafu Atolls, Male and Baa Atoll. For twenty minutes, you'll be charged something between USD 50 and USD 80. The best time for banana boating is the interval between April and October.

5

Fun Tube

This is another group activity you can enjoy in the Maldives. You'll be sitting on a tube that's quite like a bed and wade through the great ocean. The speed of it is the most thrilling part, though it is also part of Maldives laid-back fun. One of the most fun and craziest watersports in the country, you can enjoy this at any resort beach. The best time for the activity is between April and October when the ocean waves are in favour of the sport. The cost will be about USD 130 for you and your pal.
