Though there are many water sports in Maldives to enjoy, there’s nothing like parasailing when it comes to offering a bird’s eye view of this tropical paradise!
Why Try It?
While there’s plenty to discover at the places to visit in Maldives, if you haven’t experienced parasailing before, it’s certainly worth trying here; you will be safely strapped to a parachute and connected via a long line to a speedboat. Soon, you will be lifted off the ground like a kite and can take in amazing views of the islands, lagoons and the Indian Ocean below.
When you enjoy this activity at island resorts like Adaaran Select Meedhupparu, trained professionals will be on hand to ensure safety procedures are followed. What’s more, various parasailing options are on offer two; these can include private experiences for two or for the ultimate romantic escapade, private parasailing at sunset!
Best Time for It
For parasailing in Maldives, the ideal period is the peak season from November to April; the weather is sublime with generally clear skies and calm waters. While you could still try this activity in the wet season from May to October, there’s a greater chance of rain in which case you will have to wait for more suitable weather.
More Thrills Await
There are lots more water sports to try too especially in destinations like the Raa Atoll; stay at a resort that has a house reef ideal for snorkelling and offers diving excursions too. Adrenaline-junkies can enjoy jet-skiing, flyboarding, water-skiing and windsurfing, while catamaran sailing, big game fishing and stand-up paddleboarding are usually on offer too.
