Though the islands of Maldives are popular for its water activities, there are quite a number of things which travellers can engage in – especially if they can’t swim! In Maldives, Five Star resorts usually have a large number of water activities, and popular ones include snorkelling and scuba diving. But for those who can’t swim, visiting the Maldives doesn’t have to put you off!
For instance, some resorts such as Anantara Dhigu Maldives Resort, offer a range of activities which its non swimmer guests can partake in, such as beach side yoga, kayaking and many more. If you’re looking for a clever, yet exciting way to explore the hidden gems of the underwater world, try Underwater Walking. As the name suggest, underwater walking requires you to stroll along the ocean floor, with the help of a transparent oxygen mask of course! This fun way to ‘snorkel’ will make it easy for those non swimmers to experience the absolute joys of snorkelling without actually having to swim.
Kayaking is another fun and exciting way to experience the best of the Maldives without ever having to swim! Hop on a kayak and wade through the crystal clear azure waters as you take in the surroundings of these beautiful islands. For those who prefer to stay out of the water completely, soak in the warmth of the sun’s rays as you try some beach yoga or prepare to go island hopping to discover some quiet uninhabited Maldivian islands.
Tourists can also opt to go on a sunset cruise, which is a super romantic option if you’re looking for something of the sort. Some resorts even offer other activities such as badminton and tennis for those guests who wish to get more active during their holiday whilst also staying out of the water.
