Top 3 Water Activities to do in the Maldives- Conquer the ocean!

The Maldives being an island offers many water activities and sports that are suitable for anyone and everyone- amateurs to skilled aquatic lovers. Here are the main activities you must not miss.



There is no better place in the world than the Maldives where you can, quite literally, dive into the world of marine life and all its glory. The Maldives is a premier diving destination among the elite and beginners. There are quite a few certified PADI and SSI dive centres that are near Kuramathi Maldives, one of the popular options among Maldives island resorts. Or, if you are not certified, check out several other options to explore the beautiful reef that surrounds many islands. Swim around with barracuda, turtles, manta rays, napoleons, seahorses, lobsters and hammerhead sharks. A popular point to witness these majestic creatures is at sun dawn at the Hammerhead Shark Point. Make it a point to pop by one of the many Eco Centres around the area to learn more about the aquatic life and the environment.
If you are wondering whether you need a wetsuit for your diving, the answer is not necessarily. Because the waters are quite fortunately warm and clear enough that you will have incredible visibility. TO be more adventurous, try out night dives- an exhilarating and eye-opening unique experience of a lifetime!



If scuba diving isn't as appealing to you or you are concerned about it, then snorkelling is an ideal option. The pristine and shallow reefs are easily accessible and therefore, don't require you to go too deep. Witness beautiful turtles floating and swimming about making a stop to munch their meals at the reef, a little further and you will see a school of vibrant fish as they swim synchronously. Get up, close and personal with the well-preserved and magnificent coral reefs that take up most of the coastal shores.
You will be able to rent out snorkelling equipment at any of the centres and therefore, it isn't necessary for you to lug them around. Make sure to take an underwater camera or phone to capture these beautiful moments as a souvenir.



If there is one other thing that the Maldives is famous for, it is surfing. It attracts surfers from all over the world and caters to all levels of skilled surfers. If you are not a surfer but is on your New Year's bucket list, sign up for classes at a surfing centre and spend your holidays learning a new skill. It helps to expand your list of interests and skills as it gives you a fuller perspective on life and its perks. The Maldives is always in season and therefore, is easier to plan a quick beach holiday to. Besides, it gives you the opportunity to show off on social media and encourage many others to join you in your expeditions. Conquer the waves one by one; each victory will leave you better and yearning for more.
