Trying Other Water Sports
When it comes to Maldives attractions, more than places to see, it’s the water sports that capture the interest of travellers including those based on this island. Thrill-seekers can enjoy windsurfing, jet-skiing, wakeboarding, flyboarding and water-skiing; kayaking and catamaran sailing offer more laidback excitement, while banana boating, big game fishing and bottom-line fishing are on offer too.
From Dhigurah Island, you can embark on various excursions be it with the family or that special someone. A popular activity is going on a sunset dolphin cruise, while you can also experience a trip to a deserted island and have a private picnic. You can also visit inhabited islands and soak up some local culture and what better way to end the day than a night cruise under star-filled skies!
Indulging in Spa Rituals
No trip to the Maldives would be complete without some sublime pampering which is what you can expect at The Spa by Clarins on Dhigurah. Set amidst soothing tropical gardens, this spa offers a wealth of holistic rituals from traditional Ayurvedic treatments to anti-ageing face and body therapies. These are complemented by wellness programmes and guided yoga too.
