5 Cool Things to Do in the Maldives – Where it’s Always Sunny!

The Maldives are certainly fascinating, and there is no greater adventure than a holiday at a private island resort in the Maldives. Made up of over 1000 islands spread across the Indian Ocean; the place is an adventure central. Here is a list of 5 cool things to do in the Maldives.


Definitely Give Scuba Diving a Go!

Scuba diving in the Maldives is a treat you must not miss. The best part? Even a novice can learn scuba diving and earn their PADI diving certificate! How cool is that? Here's why people visiting the Maldives decide to learn the sport. The part of the Indian Ocean the Maldives is located in is a hub for marine life, and the islands boast over 500 types. But the marine life is only part of the lure. The beautiful coral formations are worth a dive to admire. So, when in the Maldives make sure to plan a scuba diving tour and avoid any regrets.


You've Got to Plan a Snorkelling Tour

The Maldives island resorts, located on private islands, offer the perfect type of isolation. You will love your Maldives resort rooms and suites located a few metres off-shore; the overwater villas offered by the likes of Hard Rock Hotel Maldives are almost islands of their own. Snorkelling is quite popular amongst guests because anyone with basic swimming skills can snorkel, plus all you need are fins, mask and snorkel to set off from your resort's beach to swim up to the house reef. The verdant reefs are home to colourful little fish and pretty corals. Don't be surprised if a friendly dolphin swims alongside you or a turtle passes by.


Being a Foodie in the Maldives Is the Best!

Not only is the Maldives an exotic destination, but the cuisine is also out of this world! Since fishing is the nation's main source of income, you will be treated to the best in fresh seafood dishes. But that is not all; sultry island flavours are available in abundance as you taste dishes made with coconut cream and garnished coconut shavings as well as rich fish broths and snacks that are packed with flavour. But Maldivian cuisine is not all that's on offer at the luxury Maldives resorts. Each hotel comprises several restaurants offering delicious food from around the world, and the perfect settings to relax and enjoy island vibes with your favourite cocktail.


Go Island Hopping

The Maldives is famous for its island-hopping tours. And why not, when you've got over 1000 islands to explore. Island-hopping tours involve exploring islands within the atoll your resort in the Maldives is located in. You will enjoy the tour, which includes picnics on isolated islands and swimming in the warm ocean. Next, you get to visit the local islands and observe island life. Chat to some elderly folk and maybe even get invited to a home-cooked meal.


Sightseeing in Male

Male is the capital island of the Maldives. And sightseeing tours to the island are top-rated attractions. You can visit the man-made beach and enjoy the holiday atmosphere, and explore the National Museum, souvenir bazaars, fish markets, and mosques ranging from the oldest to the larges on the archipelago.
