5 Exciting Things to Do in the Maldives When the Sun Goes Down – Prepare for a Mind-blowing Experience

The Maldives is a strikingly beautiful archipelago that has many islands offering the most exciting activities during the day – but with sundown, things get pretty ethereal and you'd find yourself wondering if you're dreaming or not. Here are five splendid things to do during and after sunset.


Go Diving

Take your streak of adventure a notch higher by braving the Maldivian waters after the sun goes down. It's particularly glorious to be spending time beneath the waves whilst sun rays filter into the wonderful marine world – but the thrill of exploring the waters in the dark is a thrill that is rivalled by no other. You may feel a bit apprehensive about stepping into this alien world after hours, but you'd be offered a scintillating experience that is tinged with streaks of unexpected delights during your nighttime adventures down below the swishing waves of the Arabian Sea.


Dine at a Private Island

At your request, many resorts in the Maldives are ready to whisk you away to a nearby island to offer a unique dining experience characterised by the stars above and the distant rolling of the waves – imagine how you'd feel with all your senses heightened while nature surrounds you, keeping all signs of reality at bay. You'd especially be able to enjoy the Maldivian delicacies to your heart's content along with an assortment of refreshing beverages while having a heart-to-heart with your loved ones in this dreamy setting.


Visit Glow-in-the-dark Beaches

Some beaches in the Maldives look as if they come straight out of a fairy tale during the night – this is due to an unreal-looking phenomenon that occurs during certain seasons in beaches such as the ones belonging to Mudhdhoo Island. This truly awe-inspiring sight includes luminescent blue specks that emit a bluish glow in the dark. All magic aside, this occurs due to a natural phenomenon called "bioluminescence".


Gaze at Stars

Those who relish in serenity and thrive where there are peace and quiet would particularly enjoy just lying under a stunning view of the Maldivian sky at night. You could go to the deck by the ocean at a beach resort Maldives has to offer such as Cinnamon Dhonveli Maldives and lie there with a dearly loved one, gazing at the twinkling blanket of stars above. Maybe you could enhance the experience with a bottle of champagne and a couple of snacks and talk about your dreams and hopes with that significant other. As you continue to gaze at the twinkling stars while listening to the rhythmic swish of the ocean, you'll truly come to appreciate the value of peace in life.


Star-lit Cinema

Star-lit cinema is a growing trend in the Maldives and it's offered by many resorts after sundown. While you chill out with your friends, family, or that special someone – lounging around in bean bags with your feet in the soft sands and a delicious cocktail in your hand – it makes for an ideal setting in which you can enjoy a movie, just the way you want it.
