The Maldives may be a great destination to spend lazy days on the beach, but there are also plenty of fun activities to enjoy for intrepid travellers.
A quintessential Maldives activity, snorkelling gives you the chance to discover a truly amazing underwater world where vibrant coral and fish species coexist. Resorts the likes of Kandolhu Maldives not only have house reefs to explore, but also offer reef hopping excursions to some of the country’s best spots for snorkelling.
Snorkelling aside, there are loads more exciting water sports in Maldives. Luxury resort options generally provide many of these fun activities including kayaking, catamaran sailing, windsurfing, stand-up paddleboarding, jet skiing and parasailing. Of course, not to be forgotten is diving which literally takes an adventure to new depths!
For a change of scenery, you can head to some of the other islands in Maldives. A tour of the capital Male gives you the chance to visit some of the country’s main attractions like the Grand Friday Mosque and the National Museum. Also worth doing is heading to islands where you can see the traditional way of life of local communities.
The Maldives is famed for its magical sunsets and one of the best vantage points to witness this is on a cruise. This activity is also one that has a high romance factor and certain sunset cruises also include the serving of champagne and canapés which make them perfect for couples!
