The Maldives is one of the world’s most renowned coastal tourist destinations. Made up of over 2000 small islands, the archipelagic nation of Maldives is reputed for its pristine white sandy beaches, stunning coral reefs and dive sites, amazing tropical climate, and unique island culture. The Maldives is all the more attractive due to its world-class hospitality industry, which offers hotels and resorts such as the luxurious Anantara Dhigu Maldives Resort & Spa; a resort that offers Male excursions and island hopping trips.
The Maldives is known for offering its visitors a host of outdoor activities to choose from; chief among which are water sports, diving, and boating. However, an activity which is gaining increasing popularity and provides both adventure and fun is island hopping. Island hopping entails visiting and exploring many hundreds of smaller islands of the Maldives. Most of the islands are uninhabited and carry their own special features, promising to be a truly captivating experience.
There are many resorts and adventure sports centres that offer island hopping excursions and tours, so all you need to do is sign up for one and you can be on your way! The islands, with patches of greenery, white sandy beaches, and unique underwater attractions, offer plenty of things to explore. You can walk along the beaches of these islands and look for exotic seashells, venture into the uninhabited forests and witness the beauty and tranquillity of Mother Nature; or you can also dive into the waters in search of hidden coral reefs. Another popular activity associated with island hopping is having a small picnic or dinner at one of these islands. Pack up everything you need and enjoy a peaceful snack, meal or beverage on one of the beautiful islands. Anyone with a knack for adventure and a love for the outdoors is sure to enjoy island hopping in the Maldives.
