Best 07 Beach Activities to do in Maldives – For Countless Hours of Fun in the Sun

The Maldives is one of the most popular tourist destinations for those seeking to bask in the sun and frolic in the beach. It is also great for beach and aqua activities & here are a few highlights.



Enjoying the breathtaking beaches of Maldives is mesmerizing in itself, but taking the plunge into the waters and witnessing the beauty beneath the surface takes things to a whole new level! The islands of Maldives are home to some of the most spectacular coral reefs in the world, which are inhabited by hundreds of species of marine life. Thus, Maldives has become one of the world's most foremost diving locations, and diving sites such as Banana Reef, Manta Point, the Ari Atoll, Turtle Point, and Cocoa Corner are well worth checking out.


Island Excursions

Another activity that visitors to Maldives have come to love is going on island excursions. More commonly known as island hopping, this activity involves exploring the hundreds of tiny islands of the Maldives. Most of these islands are uninhabited, making it a truly adventurous activity to explore them. Many hotels and resorts organize for their guests an island hopping experience to include activities such as beach side picnics and snorkelling excursions. One of the best hotels in Maldives for accommodation and leisure is Adaaran Club Rannalhi.


Water Sports

A trip to the Maldives wouldn't be complete without engaging in at least some of the awesome water sports on offer. The moderate tropical climate, the calm waters, and beautiful scenery make an ideal combination to spend countless hours engaging in all manner of water sports. Speed freaks can jet ski, water ski or go on speed boats, adrenaline junkies can parasail, wake board, and kite surf, while the kids can snorkel, go on banana boat rides, and go canoeing. The Maldives is also great for surfing, wind surfing, and boating.



Being an archipelago known for being home to some of the richest marine resources in the world, it is obvious that the Maldives is also a great place to fish. Thus, if you are a fishing enthusiast you can be assured of having a truly great experience. Many hotels and resorts offer great fishing excursions, so you can head out in to the water with a six pack of beer and spend the day hauling in some catch.


Whale and Dolphin Watching

Maldives is also considered to be one the top destinations for whale and dolphin watching tours. If you happen to find yourself in the Maldives during the months of December – January or April – May, then you just might be able to go on a whale and dolphin watching tour where you will get a chance to witness these majestic creatures.
