Going on a holiday to Maldives is on many people’s bucket lists. However, did you know that this archipelago has many exciting and one-of-a-kind activities that deserve their own space on any list? From scuba diving to exploring the local capital, Male, there is something for every traveler. If you’re wondering what to do in the Maldives, here are eight activities to check off your list.
Stay in a Waterfront Villa
With the water here being so pure, you must stay in one of the many Maldives water villas. We have overwater accommodations at Club Med’s Kani resort and Finolhu Villas, where you can see the beautiful blue water directly outside your room. You can’t go wrong with a Maldives water villa if you want to feel like you’re in an island paradise.
Snorkeling and scuba diving
Snorkeling in the Maldives is a must if you want to discover the local undersea ecosystem but prefer to stay in shallow seas. Expect to see beautiful reefs, fish, and larger species like turtles and rays. Snorkeling is appropriate for anyone who can swim, so you can even bring your children. There are various shallow snorkeling areas all around the country, even near resorts, so you won’t have to drive far from your hotel.
Spending your holiday to Maldives gives you the opportunity to experience some of the best scuba diving in the world. The Maldives is a scuba diver’s dream, with its unique underwater terrain creating sweeping currents and diverse species such as manta rays, whale sharks, turtles, and dolphins. The North Malé Atoll, Baa Atoll, and South Malé Atoll are among the top diving destinations in the area. Scuba diving courses and PADI diving certification can also be obtained here, including at Club Med Maldives.
Go on a Male Tour
The Maldives has a diverse culture, and Male is one of the most incredible places to learn about. The Maldives National Museum, the Old Friday Mosque, and the local market are all must-sees. Male’s two oldest structures are the museum and the Old Friday Mosque, both of which feature unspoiled, traditional architecture.
Feast on Your Catch and Go Big Game Fishing
Fishing is a significant sector in the country and the primary source of sustenance for its residents. Why not go fishing with a native and learn how to catch some fish? You will be taken to excellent fishing sites to catch red snapper and barracuda. If you’re staying at Club Med, you can bring your catch back for our chefs to prepare.
Take a Sunset Cruise
If supper on the beach isn’t enough, how about dinner on a sunset cruise? Set off to the middle of the ocean while on your dream holidays to Maldives, where you’ll be alone with your closest relatives, and friends on calm waters painted orange by the setting sun. If you’re lucky, you could even see dolphins up close.
Explore the islands via seaplane
Take a seaplane for a bird’s eye view of the Maldives’ different islands from the sky. There’s nothing like flying over the stunning blue waters and white beach islands in your private jet. If you’re lucky, you might even see a school of dolphins in the sea.
Dinner for Two on the Beach
Surprise your loved one with a romantic dinner on the beach as the sun sets. A supper like this will make your Maldives holiday even more unique, with the sunset, lapping waves, and excellent people by your side. When you have a sunset beach supper at Club Med, you may savor international cuisine, grilled fish, and more.
Experiencing holidays to Maldives should undoubtedly be on your vacation bucket list, especially if you enjoy traveling worldwide. If you’re wondering what to do in the Maldives, we hope this list will assist you in planning your holiday.
