Top 5 Things to Do in Dhigurah with Kids - Five Family-Friendly Activities to Enjoy in Dhigurah

Tipped to be one of the most family-oriented island bases in the Maldives, Dhigurah offers travellers a wide variety of adventures and activities. Regardless of the duration of your getaway, here are 5 things that every family must do during a stay in Dhigurah.


Scuba Diving

Blessed with underwater landscapes that are the envy of its neighbouring islands, Dhigurah is the perfect place to enjoy a family diving adventure. Whether one is based at The Residence Maldives Dhigurah or any other rest, there are plenty of local tour operators organising diving tours in the area. Teeming with marine creatures, Dhigurah Island's proximity to some of the Maldives' finest diving hubs also makes it a diver's paradise as Manta Point and other sites are just a stone's throw away. Families can also sign up for diving lessons as children as young as 8 can secure a PADI certificate while holidaying on Dhigurah Island.



Those who believe that the best Maldives attractions are located above ground have clearly never peeked beneath the waves off the coast of Dhigurah. Requiring no special skills or even swimming skills, snorkelling is an activity that can be enjoyed by the whole family, regardless of age and experience level. The coral reefs and the tropical fish species found just on the fringes of the island create an exciting snorkelling environment that's engaging and magical for tourists of all ages.


Bike Around

Dhigurah is also the perfect location to sign up for a biking tour as cycling is the only way to get around the white, sandy confines of the island with ease. Bicycles are available for hire at most local resorts and families with children can embark on a late afternoon or post-breakfast ride around the island. Exploring the lush tropical confines of the interior of Dhigurah, a bike ride can be a great way to discover off-the-beaten-path areas on the paradise isle.


Go Island Hopping

Dhigurah is also the perfect launching point for an island-hopping excursion in the Maldives. An island hopping tour can not only encompass a pit stop at Maamingili Island, its nearest neighbour, but also other pristine islands with secluded beaches in the atoll. Families can also include snorkelling, sea kayaking and diving tours to their island hopping adventure as most tour operators are happy to include an array of water sports activities into the mix. Families who would rather sail across from one idyllic island to another will find that it is a great way to spend quality time with loved ones.


Dine in Style

There's more than one way to enjoy dinner time during a stay on Dhigurah Island as beach dinners and picnics on sandbanks are all part and parcel of a getaway. Families who wish to switch up meal hours or need to celebrate a child's birthday or any other special occasion will find that a candle-lit beach dinner or a sandbank picnic are fantastic ways to wine and dine.
