Top 5 Fantastic Things to do in Maldives – Sun-Kissed Adventures

If you are looking for a holiday to enjoy fun experiences and thrilling escapades, then the Maldives will make a great destination for your next getaway! From exciting activities in the water to journeys out to sea, here are some of the best things to do during your stay.



An activity that requires no prior experience and can be enjoyed by the whole family, snorkelling is something you are bound to want to do every day! The waters provide amazing visibility to the vibrant underwater world beneath the waves full of corals and species like clownfish, bannerfish, oriental sweetlips and more. Some Maldives resorts will even offer private snorkelling safaris with a marine biologist guide; such excursions will take you to key sites where you may have the opportunity to encounter turtles and even swim with manta rays!


Water Sports

Apart from snorkelling, you get a diverse range of other water sports for all ages to try. At resorts in Maldives, villas can be found beside or near the shore, so you can look forward to easily enjoying these activities. If it's a speed-filled experience you are after, then water-skiing and wakeboarding are not to be missed; for the family, nothing beats fun tubing or banana boat rides, while parasailing offers breath-taking panoramas from up high. Other water sports on offer include kayaking, big game fishing, stand-up paddleboarding, catamaran sailing and windsurfing.



The deeper you go underwater, the more amazing coral and marine marvels you will discover which is why diving is so popular here. Resorts with dive centres offer certified PADI or SSI courses along with excursions to key dive sites in places like Rasdhoo Atoll; here you can see mantas, trevally, barracuda and eagle rays as well as encounter hammerhead sharks during sunrise at Shark Point. Properties such as Kuramathi Maldives also offer unique experiences like blackwater dives at night where divers can witness what is termed as a "vertical migration" of marine species.


Sunset Cruise

One of the best things to do in Maldives is to take in the stunning sunsets that are on display every day. While a walk on the beach with that special someone during this time is not to be missed, for something more romantic you can set off on a sunset cruise! Be it in a modern vessel or a more traditional boat called a dhoni, such experiences are truly magical especially when they also include sparkling wine being served. As a bonus, you may even get to spot dolphins on your journey.


Island Hopping

Since the country is home to countless islands, this activity is well worth enjoying and gives you a chance to visit both inhabited and uninhabited islands. Inhabited islands such as the capital, Male, and Rasdhoo provide insights into the local culture and are places where one can get in a bit of shopping too. Equally captivating are visits to uninhabited islands where you can enjoy coastal serenity, and depending on the excursion, have a BBQ lunch prepared for you as well! Due to COVID-19 regulations, check with your resort if such outings are on offer when you visit.
