Exciting List of Things to Do in the Maldives for Your Next Holiday -Engaging and Thrilling Activities to Do in Paradise

Ranked among the top family holiday destinations in Asia, the Maldives is much more than your average beach paradise. From water-based sports to once-in-a-lifetime experiences; here are some of the most exciting ways to spend time in the holiday archipelago.


Whale and Dolphin Watching Tour

Tipped to be one of the best destinations for whale and dolphin-watching safaris, tourists must sign up for this unique marine encounter during a vacation in the Maldives. Although dolphins can be sighted all year round, those who wish to increase their chances of spotting sperm whales and blue whales should time their visit to coincide with the official tourist season in the Maldives. The months from December to March are ideal for whale watching as the mammoth mammals are known to pass through the Indian Ocean on their way to colder climates.


Scuba Diving

Home to more coral species than any other destination in the world and a marine life heritage that is the envy of the region, the Maldives is a scuba diver's dream come true. HP Reef, Maaya Thila, Banana Reef, Manta Point, and Hammerhead Point are just some of the top diving sites in the Maldives, which also include a number of shipwrecks.



Requiring no special skills, snorkelling is an activity that one can enjoy just outside some of the best all-inclusive resorts in Maldives. This is due to the fact that house reefs surrounding Maldivian resort islands are abounding with fish species and colourful reefs; therefore, snorkellers need not venture far from their overwater villa.


Island Hopping

As a popular activity option that is accessible from Adaaran Maldives and many other resort bases in the paradise archipelago, island hopping is a great way to uncover the uninhabited islands and beaches of the Maldives. Made up of more than a thousand islands, there is no other destination that is more suitable for this type of excursion as one can literally travel from one pristine island to the next, enjoying its stunning beaches, tropical jungles, and pristine waters.


Sunset Cruises

Although it is considered among the most romantic things to do in the Maldives, sunset cruises are not just reserved for couples and honeymooners. Setting out in the late afternoon, these cruises, which are conducted on luxury yachts, catamarans, and other vessels, allow tourists to witness the sunset from the ocean instead of staring at the spectacle from the shore.



Those who wish to discover the Maldives at their own pace can sign up for a kayaking adventure with a local tour operator. No prior experience or swimming abilities are required.


Cultural Excursion in Male

No trip to the Maldives would be complete without exploring the cultural points of interest in Male. Home to the National Museum, Sultan Park, Republic Square, presidential palace, and the Grand Friday Mosque, Male is also the ideal location to sign up for a food tour as a trip to the Maldives wouldn't be complete without treating your taste buds to the country's wonderful cuisine.
