There’s a reason why the Maldives continues to be one of the best destinations for travellers the world over; here are some of the top things to do when holidaying in this tropical paradise.
Snorkelling and Diving
While there is a myriad of water-based activities to enjoy here, snorkelling and diving are arguably the two most popular water sports in Maldives. Attractions abound beneath the waves and those exploring these underwater worlds can witness vibrant corals as well as clownfish, bannerfish, butterflyfish, blacktip reef sharks, manta rays and more.
Sunset or Dolphin Cruises
Sunsets here are truly magical and taking a cruise in the evening gives you the perfect vantage point of this spectacular sight. Resorts the likes of Dhigali Maldives additionally offer dolphin cruises too, in order to spot these playful marine mammals as they swim wild and free.
When it comes to islands to explore in Maldives you can choose from inhabited islands and uninhabited islands; the former lets you experience local culture and get in a bit of shopping, while the latter offers a Robinson Crusoe-like experience, perfect for a secluded beach getaway with that special someone.
Indulging in Spa Wellness
Set amidst the soothing sights and sounds of the sea, resort spas in Maldives provide a wealth of holistic treatments that complement an island escape. From traditional Maldivian, Balinese, Thai or Ayurvedic therapies to body and facial care as well as yoga and meditation, there’s much to experience on a wellness retreat.
