Top Things to Do in the Maldives - Exploring Activity Options in the Maldives

As one of the region's most popular tourist hubs, the Maldives offers travellers a wide range of activities. Here are some of the best things to do during a getaway in the paradise archipelago.


Scuba Diving

Tipped to be one of the best locations for scuba diving in all of Asia, the Maldives offers travellers the chance to catch a glimpse of its pristine underwater landscapes on diving expeditions. Home to more coral species than any other country on the planet, the sheer variety of marine life occupying the coasts of the Maldives is enough to make tourists want to take a deep dive into the submerged water gardens in the archipelago. With whale sharks, manta rays, clown fish, parrot fish and lion fish, scuba diving tours are feasible during most of the year in these paradise isles. Those who wish to secure a PADI certification can also sign up with a diving school in the Maldives before exploring the popular dive sites around the islands.



With more than a thousand islands to its name, there's no better destination suited for a sailing adventure than the Maldives. Available through a plethora of tour organizers and resorts, sailing around the pristine landscapes and virgin islands of the Maldives can also double as an island hopping tour. Visitors can also schedule to take part in other water sports activities while on a sailing excursion so as to enjoy the waters off the coast of the uninhabited islands and other breathtaking locations.


Sunset Cruises

Honeymooners are not the only holidaymakers that should embark on this scenic boat ride at sunset as it allows travellers to witness a daily occurrence from a unique point of view in the heart of the ocean. Setting out in the evening hours, just before the sun dips its weary head for the day, the sunset cruises also promise encounters with dolphins that are known to gather around the catamarans and yachts used for the cruise during this time of the day. Champagne and canap├ęs are served on board to create the perfect atmosphere.


Spa Day

With so many spa resorts and healing facilities to its name, no trip to the Maldives would be complete without experiencing the decadent and therapeutic spa treatments on offer in the islands. Providing spa goers with spa treatments and therapies steeped in the Balinese, Ayurvedic, Thai and Swedish traditions, visitors can relax and unwind in style at the spaciously designed spa facilities in the Maldives as a couple or individually.



Regarded as the ideal activity for those who do not wish to venture too far outside the confines of their hotel, snorkelling is a pastime nearly every vacationer can enjoy in the Maldives. The house reefs of most Maldives luxury resort isles are suitable for the activity and those based at Kandolhu Maldives will also find snorkelling tours of nearby islands are also organized for the benefit of travellers.


Water Sports
