Top 05 Things to Add to Your Maldives Bucket List – The Ultimate Island Escape!

A holiday in Maldives promises to be a truly unforgettable experience with much to see and experience. If it's going to be your first time here, there are certain things you should do to make your getaway truly remarkable, like those mentioned below.


Private Cruises

While you will be spending much time on the beach soaking up the sun, don't forget there are plenty of adventures to be enjoyed out at sea as well. Some resorts in Maldives offer private sunset cruises perfect for couples looking for a romantic experience where they can enjoy Champagne and toast to their love eternal. You also get private dolphin cruises where you and your loved ones can head off to spot playful and sometimes acrobatic dolphins; depending on the season, you may spot some whales too!



One of the easiest and most fun ways to discover the spectacular coral and marine life that can be found here is to go snorkelling. An activity that can be tried by the whole family, it gives you a chance to witness all manner of marine species including reef fish, sharks and turtles. Resorts the likes of Baros Maldives have a house reef right near the shore which can be easily explored on a guided underwater adventure; additionally, you can also look to sign up for snorkelling safaris to key hotspots or even some night snorkelling!


Luxury Villa Stays

This is the ideal destination to indulge in an exclusive holiday where you can look forward to plenty of pampering in the Maldives. Private villa options be it beside pristine shores or over the serene waters of a lagoon which you can directly access are a not to be missed part of this experience. Consider staying at a villa with a full range of modern comforts, its own pool and which even offers the services of a butler available 24/7 to fulfil your needs.


Suba Diving

Scuba diving in Maldives is another activity well worth trying; even if you don't have the needed certification fear not, resorts can be found with PADI Five Star Dive Centres offering training and certifications for beginner and advanced divers. The country is blessed with a vast array of dive sites from reefs to wrecks, each home to vibrant coral and marine life. Some resorts let you also enjoy dives at night including fluo (or fluorescent) night diving which utilises yellow barrier filters and blue lights to provide a stunning spectacle beneath the waves.


Sandbank Dining

Having a meal on a beach is certainly perfect for couples, though when it comes to truly romantic dining in Maldives, nothing beats heading off to a sandbank just for two! Sandbanks are secluded and surrounded by azure waters that create an ideal setting for an intimate meal be it morning, noon or night. Depending on the resort, you can look forward to heading to a sandbank with that special someone to savour breakfast at sunrise, a picnic lunch or BBQ dinner amidst a spellbinding sunset.
