List of Unforgettable Experiences in the Maldives - There's more to the Maldives than what meets the eyes!

We won't blame you if all you see are images of overwater villas, sunbathing and delicious drinks when you think of Maldives. This nation conjures up images of beautiful, turquoise oceans and powdery soft sand beaches. Read on to find out more unforgettable experiences!


Beaches that light up vividly!

The sparkling beaches of Mudhdhoo in the Baa Atoll are a must-see for anybody who enjoys a night sky filled with stars. Initially suspected to be generated by phytoplankton, a sort of luminous sea creature, the Maldives' glittering, starry beaches are due to ostracods, a small crab. This phenomenon happens most often between September to November; however, it is very dependent on the moon as well as the weather. The glowing beach is a natural phenomenon you can't miss out on!


Scuba diving expeditions

It should go without saying that the Maldives' rich, diverse and distinctive aquatic eco-systems provide for fantastic diving. Gorgeous corals, a rainbow array of colourful fish, and a variety of marine creatures including eels, lobsters, puffers, shy clams, as well as conchs may be seen by both professional divers and beginners. If you are a beginner, you have nothing to worry about. Almost all resorts offer a PADI certified diving school on site. Head to some of the luxury Maldives resorts the likes of Heritance Aarah Maldives for scuba diving expeditions.


Swim with Whale Sharks and Mammoth Manta Rays

Watch a stingray feed

Many varieties of marine creatures call the Maldives home, including inquisitive stingrays that may be seen near some resorts. Although you shouldn't get too close when you swim or wade through shallow waters, you can still capture a casual feeding in some places in the Maldives. There are interactive marine labs that showcase nightly stingray feedings that take place in shallow seas off a pier.
