Excursions you have to take in the Maldives - Activities you can do when in the Maldives

It is no doubt that Maldives is known as one of the best holiday destinations in the world and there are so many different excursions to do when you visit the islands.



Snorkelling in the Maldives allows you to explore a world hidden away from the everyday life of humans. Beautiful little fish, colourful corals, turtles and different types of sharks are some of the species you will be able to swim with when you go snorkelling in the Maldives.


Go diving

Diving in the Maldives is a popular activity that requires you to take certain precautions regulated by the government. Due to the protested coral reefs and marine life, not all locations are approved for diving. Once you are in the midst of the activity you are bound to forget everything else out there as you get to swim with some stunning creatures on mother Earth.


Go island hopping

Out of the 27 atolls, each island and atoll is popular for different excursions which is why island hopping is a must-do activity here in the Maldives. In Maldives, water villa with private pool options can be found on different island resorts that are scattered around one another so island hopping is a great way to explore.


Explore Male

Apart from the popular locations such as the museums and libraries you can visit the street food carts, the open-air markets and the mosques during your visit to Male. Guided tours are available for those who wish to find information about history, culture, traditions and other important details.


Try surfing

Beaches in the Maldives are a great location to try surfing for the first time. The waves are soft and tender and are not scary for those who have not tried surfing for the first time. The Residence Maldives Dhigurah and most of the other hotels and resorts have private beaches where you can try surfing with assistance from the hotel staff who are able to teach you and guide you to ride those waves for the first time.


Enjoy the beach

If you miss spending time at the beach you have not been able to experience your trip to the Maldives to the fullest. The stunning turquoise blue water, the white sandy beaches and the horizon that lights up the sky is a stunning view from dawn to dusk.


Visit a deserted island

From the 1200 islands that is known as the Maldives only about 200 islands are inhabited and from those about 100 islands are occupied by resorts and hotels. If you wish to explore you can take a trip to an uninhabited island where you can explore the island, swim in the pristine waters and even pack your own picnic to ensure you can stay on the island for several hours.


Take a boat ride

A boat ride is a great way to explore Maldivian waters while enjoying the surrounding. If you leave in the morning or opt for a dolphin and whale spotting boat ride you just might be able to see some of the dancing dolphins and whales living their best life in their natural habitat.
