5 Best Things to Do in the Maldives – Time to adventure amongst the islands!

The Maldives will perpetually be considered the pinnacle of island getaways across the globe for its lush natural beauty comprised of stunning shorelines, delicious food and warm sense of hospitality. During your visits, it is best to organize some things that can supplement this utter joyride.


Explore the Banana Reef

What awaits cannot simply be understated. The wonders of the North Malé atoll are what dreams are made of. With a stunning locale that is suited for both beginner and advanced divers, this banana-shaped reef is home to a vibrant environment. A collection of small canyons, soft coral and overhangs provide homes to large schools of snappers and oriental sweet lips.


A visit to Hulhumale

Located north of Malé, this manmade island is roughly 2 square kilometres and is made of sand and coral. It came to fruition due to a project from 1997 and has provided homes for thousands of families and has helped to ease issues that crop up due to population growth and density.
Additionally, Hulhumale now offers visitors a stunning array of authentic Maldivian dining and also provides opportunities to visit the local reef for some time in the water. No better place to unwind than at a Maldivian sandbank with a nice cup of some Maldivian tea.


The wonders of a Malé Fish Market

You can find the Malé Fish Market on the north side of the island, somewhere west of Republic Square. Here you will find yourself amidst some of the many local communities engaging in their day-to-day businesses. If you are hoping to get some shopping done in peace, then your best bet is to visit during the afternoon as this is the time in the day when all the fishermen have rounded up their catches for the day and have come ashore.
The quality of the fish at this market are unparalleled. With a stunning and thriving ocean surrounding the country, their seafood is impeccable. If you are looking for a more authentic experience, you can even gather up the ingredients and get a local homemade meal prepared for you.


Enter the National Museum

If you are looking for places to see in Maldives then there is a good chance that the National Museum in the Maldives will be right at the top of your itinerary.
If you are staying at an accommodation such as the Adaaran Maldives, feel free to ask the staff to coordinate transport for your visit.
The museum in itself is quite impressive. With a staggering collection of artefacts, manuscripts and other relics the museum offers a brilliant overview of Maldivian history.


Visit the capital

Visiting the capital of this nation should be on the to-do list of all visitors. Malé is the heart of the nation and is filled with lively cafes and amenities to keep every traveller happy. Feel the energy of a thrumming of a capital city as you relax by the ocean!
