While the Maldives is known for its water sports, equally enjoyable and captivating are the many excursions on offer; here are a few which you should experience on a holiday.
For those staying at private island resorts, one of the best activities to do in Maldives is to take a cruise on a traditional dhoni (local boat). Sunset cruises are the most popular be it with that special someone as you enjoy a champagne toast or with family or friends to take in and photograph this spectacular sight.
Deserted Island Visits
The country has countless deserted islands and resorts like Adaaran Prestige Water Villas offer excursions to some of them. It’s perfect for couples in search of sublime solitude where they can share a gourmet picnic. Trips for groups are also available and one can sunbathe and snorkel to your heart’s content and enjoy a BBQ lunch too.
Another of the exciting things to do in Maldives is to embark on fishing trips. Such excursions in the mornings are ideal to catch big game fish such as dogtooth tuna, marlin and sailfish. Some resorts even offer sunset or night fishing utilising traditional techniques, while your catch can be prepared for dinner the following day.
The surrounding ocean is home to various dolphin species such as spinner dolphins which can be seen on special excursions. Such dolphin safaris will be a treat for young and old alike and though sightings are not guaranteed, there’s a good chance to witness these marine mammals swimming or frolicking in the water.
