Unique Things to Do in Maldives Beyond Luxurious Getaways – It’s time to look beyond the glitz

The Maldives has repeatedly impressed travellers from all over the world as the epitome of a tropical paradise. While that is undoubtedly true, the unique activities on offer in the Maldives would show you that there is much more to this beautiful island country than meets the eye.


Experience the "Galapagos" of the Maldives!

You can only begin to fathom the underwater and aerial splendour that abounds in the Maldives, which is home to some 26 coral atolls and more than 150 resorts. It's no surprise that the Maldives' paradises have been given pithy names like "Galapagos of the Indian Ocean" or "Galapagos of the Pacific," respectively.
The Galapagos chain is teeming with wildlife activity; in fact, it was the islands of the Galapagos that provided the impetus for Charles Darwin's theory of evolution, as any fan of the great outdoors knows by heart. Despite the Maldives' reputation for rich biodiversity, just one island has been dubbed "the Maldives' Galapagos."


View a glowing beach in the dark with awe

Thanks to the sheer number of islands in the archipelago, visitors to the Maldives need not worry about getting bored. There is one beach, though, that truly stands out among the rest because of the incredible bioluminescence of its waters. Envision this: Imagine setting sail for Raa Atoll as the sun begins to set, feeling the breeze in your hair and watching the fiery purple sunsets of the Maldives as you make camp on the beach for the night. Vaadhoo Island, sometimes called Mudhdhoo Island, has seas that gleam an unreal neon blue once the sky is dark enough to see the night's stellar extravaganza above.


Indulge in some physical recreation, for your leisure.

You can be as sporty as you like while visiting this beautiful archipelago. There are some truly one-of-a-kind activities to do throughout the Maldives, and among them are activities that will enable you to maintain your fitness even while on vacation, no matter what frequency your body happens to be operating at.
You may feel safe and secure at any resort in the Maldives. Being out on the water and getting active is as simple as renting some gear whenever you like. Visitors to the Maldives may not immediately associate the islands with surfing, yet the weather and water temperature are ideal for the activity for most of the year.


Study underwater ecosystems

It is predicted by scientists that by end of the century, increasing sea levels might submerge the majority of the Maldives' beautiful islands. In addition, its coral islets and unspoiled waters are a haven for a wide variety of marine life, both permanent and transient. However, Maldivian-based businesses have made sustainability and the protection of ecosystems a top priority for years.
In order for the best underwater experiences, be sure to check out any of the Maldives ocean villa selections such as the Heritance Aarah Maldives for a truly exquisite experience.


Explore Malé on foot with a tour guide

Most of you are probably visualising your incredible Maldives vacation on picturesque resort islands, where you can easily walk to your Instagrammable overwater villa. If you want to experience something truly unique in the Maldives, you shouldn't skip out on seeing the nation's capital, Malé.
