As the perfect beach holiday hub for active travellers, the Maldives provides visitors with the chance to experience some truly awe-inspiring encounters. Here’s a list of some of these activities.
Those who happen to be holidaying in the Maldives between June and October must sign up for a kitesurfing session. The weather and the wind conditions of this particular time of year are well-suited to the activity, which involves gliding across the ocean’s surface on a longboard with a sail. Although the water sport is a combination of water skiing and windsurfing, the challenge of balancing oneself on top of the longboard is no small feat.
Scuba diving is one of the best activities in Maldives, and it is a water sport that you simply must try whether you are staying at The Nautilus Maldives or any other resort base. This underwater excursion not only takes divers to the depths of the Maldivian sea floor but also allows them to come face to face with hundreds of fish species and stunning coral reefs. Wreck divers will also be pleased with the wrecks they find off the coast of the Maldivian islands that have become thriving habitats for marine species. The best time to enjoy a diving tour in the Maldives is from December to March and June to October while the top dive sites in the country include Banana Reef, Manta Points, Lions Head and Sunlight Thila.
Dolphin Watching Tour
Although the Maldives also offers whale and whale-shark watching tours, dolphin-watching safaris are perhaps the most exciting due to the inherent playfulness of the mammals. Setting out in the wee hours of the morning, the joy of spotting spinner dolphins and bottlenose dolphins in their natural habitat is difficult to describe.
Those who would rather stay dry while delving into the Maldivian sea floor can enjoy a two-hour submarine ride instead.
