Five Cool Things to Do in the Maldives - The many attractions of the Maldives!

The Maldives is nothing short of a paradise! Impeccable seas, incredible accommodation and a fantastic range of activities for all lovers of sun, and sand! From snorkelling to sailing the high seas, to exploring secluded Maldivian Islands, here is a list of what awaits you there!


Scuba diving

The warm Indian Ocean encircling the Maldives make it one of the foremost diving locations on the planet. The excellent conditions draw a multitude of sea creatures, while the Maldives has some of the most incredible-looking diving locations ever! You can spot colourful fish, turtles, dolphins, sharks, manta rays and more during a diving excursion. Visiting the Maldives is a wonderful chance to discover diving if you are new to the sport! Lessons will be made available in most resorts with PADI-certified diving centres. 



Snorkelling is probably the most favoured activity for visitors to the Maldives. Most accommodations will provide the gear and lessons for those who require them. House reefs and lagoons are available in some resorts. So, you can step out at any time to discover what lies beneath the ocean. Joining a snorkelling liveaboard is a great option for advanced snorkellers. You will be taken to all the very best snorkelling spots around the Maldives for a snorkelling experience like never before! 


Explore some islands

With over 200 islets in the archipelago, there is much discovery to be done here. The majority of the private islands are resorts, while the rest are state-owned ones. Some islands are too secluded for inhabitation. A Maldives beach resort the likes of Ellaidhoo Maldives by Cinnamon may even arrange guided outings for guests. You can uncover some of the finest beaches and diving spots in and around your atoll. Most of these secluded little islands are filled with lush vegetation, sparkling blue expanses of sea, and vast beds of coral! You might even be able to visit some inhabited islands and interact with villagers living a simple way of life. However, do ask your tour guides about the best places to visit, as not all communities like to be bombarded with tourists. 


Discover Male 

The capital Male is an engaging place to explore! This minuscule island is also the largest and most populated in the archipelago! Life here is very different from the idyllic resorts. Take the chance to experience what living in the Maldives is really like. There are plenty of attractions to keep you busy here too! You can visit the National Museum, the UNESCO World Heritage Site Hukuru Miskiiy, the Grand Mosque, Majeedhee Magu and Newport! 


Private cruise 

A private cruise is an ultimate way to live it up in the Maldives! The Four Seasons Explorer is an all-inclusive cruise on a three-decked luxury catamaran. You get to choose from 3, 4 or 7-night stay options. The cruise trail will go to the Baa Atoll UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Then to Kuda Huraa, called the Garden Island and pristine Landaa Giraavaru. You will get to see the velvety coral roofs of the Fares Caves at Eboodhoo, swim with stingrays, and witness the grey reef shark at Rasdhoo Madivaru. In Maya Thila, see the whitetip shark and the octopus’s refuge. Also, get a glimpse of sharks at Maamigili Beyru and visit the Machafushi shipwreck. One of the main highlights will be the escorted diving trips with a marine biologist!
