So you have read the tourist brochures, seen the websites and marvelled at the pictures of the stunning natural beauty of the Maldives, but you still want more. Sure spending lazy days on the beach or taking part in thrilling water sports sounds like fun, though you may be the kind of intrepid traveller who wants something different. Well the Maldives does offer some unique experiences well worth trying out.
Before heading out on your adventures look to base yourself at an island getaway; you might as well enjoy the best the country has to offer when on holiday! Consider a stay at aluxury resort Maldives has to offer such as Anantara Dhigu Maldives Resort & Spa which also features a unique Coral Adoption Programme that helps you get actively involved in conserving coral and marine life. Combine this with snorkelling and diving expeditions and you get a truly one of a kind experience that will help you better appreciate the rich marine biodiversity of the country as well.
Another fun thing to do would be to visit one of the few inhabited islands of the Maldives. Here you get a chance to see local communities engaged in day to day activities including fishing which is the traditional livelihood here. Such excursions offer a more culturally rewarding experience that is one of a kind.
While many have seen the Maldives from the ground or from sea, not many have had the joy of seeing it from up high! Booking a scenic sea-plane flight gives you the chance to get a bird’s-eye view of this enchanting tropical paradise and makes for an unforgettable adventure. For another unique outing, look to take a whale and dolphin watching tour that lets you not only sail the seas but also catch glimpses of playful dolphins and if you are lucky the sight of a majestic whale breaking the ocean’s surface.
For something unique after dark you can also try some night fishing; yes fishing in the dark is something you can try here and don’t worry you will have some illumination to guide you, while experienced boat captains will take you to spots where you can cast your line and wait for that tug on the line. What’s more some night time fishing expeditions also let you take your catch back with you where you can have it prepared for a truly delectable dinner!
