For those who want to discover marine and coral life, snorkelling is the best way to do so. Most resorts will have a house reef, making it easy to venture out and snorkel to your heart’s content. The Baa Atoll Biosphere Reserve, Manta Point and Banana Reef are some of the best snorkelling spots in the Maldives. Scuba diving is another popular activity, with locations like Maya Thila, Coco Thila, and Kandooma Thila offering incredible coral reefs filled with abundant marine life. A Maldives diving resort such as the likes of Velassaru Maldives will be able to organise an excursion for experienced divers.
Dining in the Maldives is anything but ordinary! Immerse yourself in the deep blue sea while enjoying a fancy star-class meal with guests like sharks and manta rays for company. If you are up for this unique meal, night try looking up restaurants like this to get your very own underwater dining experience.
Glass bottom boat ride
If you prefer a more relaxed beach experience, glass-bottomed boat rides are perfect for observing marine life and enjoying the comfort of a leisurely boat ride. Some excursions will include a cookout and time for swimming and snorkelling. It’s the ideal activity for all the non-swimmers of the group.
Sea Walking allows visitors to stroll along the sea floor and experience the undersea like never before, surrounded by nature beneath the waves. Naturally, those who attempt this must be able to swim, and with an instructor present, it is perfect for kids and adults alike. The best time for sea walking is from January to April.
