Things to do in Maldives

You'd expect that basking in the sun, sipping cocktails and watching the sunset over the Indian ocean would be your only options when visiting the Maldives, well you're wrong. There are plenty things to do than just relax.  Here is our short list.

1. Diving


The Maldives is a premier scuba diving destination and if there is one place you need to give it a try, it’s here. There are many affordable PADI dive centers where you can take a discovery dive if you are not certified, or sign up for several dive options to one of the many reefs.
The Maldives is known for its whale shark migration, stingrays and sea turtles. The crystal clear blue waters are warm and inviting and offer incredible visibility and there’s no need for a wet suit here.
See eels, seahorses, lobsters and crabs, enjoy spying on the little guys.

2. Island Hopping


Staying at a private island in the Maldives? Maake sure to book an excursion to visit the nearby communities.
The Maldives follow a strict Muslim culture so be sure to dress respectably with long skirts/shorts and no spaghetti strap sleeves.
Visit the two islands, Mule,  the capital of the Atoll and Naalaafushee, a fishing village.
Walk through the concrete buildings, you'll be surprised that there is a proper downtown and square on both tiny islands with schools, community centres and banks.
These islands are probably the smallest inhabited islands, but there’s a lot going on there.

3. Stand Up Paddleboarding

The Maldives is great for stand up paddle boarding (SUP), because most islands are surrounded by calm shallow waters that only ebb and flow with the rising tides.
You can paddle along in safe bays with water so clear you can see fish swimming right below your boards.

4. Scenic Flight

Seeing the different shades of water below as you fly over the Maldives is a magical experience.

From the air, you get a real sense of just how isolated and beautiful the islands of the Maldives are.
The islands create a pattern in the sea as the deep ocean crashes into sand bars and coral reefs. Many islands are surrounded by miles of shallow waters low enough to wade through at low tide.

5. Surfing
