Things to Do in the Maldives with Kids – It’s the getaway for photo albums!

Since the Maldives' reputation as a honeymooners' paradise spread far and wide, the country has been progressively revamping its services to better meet the demands of families planning vacations to its beautiful islands. This guide will help you organise and make the most of your trip there!


Going on an Island Hopping as well as Dolphin Watching Vacation

The Maldives offers the most breathtaking opportunity for island hopping. Over 1900 islands are at your disposal, including inhabited resorts and uninhabited outcroppings. Visitors can take lavish trips from one location to another on board huge, state-of-the-art cruise ships. Sunset cruises allow you to take in the brilliant orange of the setting sun from the comfort of your ship's deck.
A trip to the Maldives with children is truly amazing due to the awe-inspiring acrobatics done by hundreds of dolphins so near to them. Some of the hotels and tour companies on the island can arrange for visitors to take advantage of cruise tours for island hopping & dolphin watching.


Enjoy some water sports!

When visiting an island, it's safe to assume that you'll be spending the majority of your time in or around the water. What really draws adrenaline seekers to the Maldives, though, are not the waters themselves but the brilliant coral reefs that develop beneath the surface. Therefore, when taking a family vacation to the Maldives, water sports should be at the top of the agenda.


Cinema under the stars and dinner on the sand

Kids probably enjoy movies, but what else is there to see? Where you watch it makes a difference. Outdoor film screenings are a novel way to simultaneously experience the majesty including both technology and nature. Many hotels provide special events like seaside movie screenings and gourmet dinners upon request.


Submarine for Whales

Take a trip through the ocean's depths in a model submarine. The Whale Submarine allows you up-close experiences with everything that lies within the iridescent depths of the Maldives, from shipwrecks to schools of brilliantly coloured fish. Adults and kids alike can't get enough of the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to ride in the deep ocean.
If you are staying at one of the Maldives family resorts such as the Heritance Aarah Maldives, during the day or evening, these hotels may arrange for this ride for a modest price, and it's sure to be a highlight of your family's trip to the Maldives.


You should give fishing a shot!

Nowadays, Maldivians are among the world's finest fishermen. Quite a few locals make a living off the water, and with all the lagoons and fishing spots in the area, it's no surprise. It's common to see island residents immediately load up their dinghies with fishing gear and set out to sea upon arrival. Dhoni's, the local boats, are utilised for fishing and exploring the waterways. The kids will enjoy this activity in the Maldives since they will see much of marine life, such as rays and schools of fish.
