WHAT TO DO IN MALDIVES

The Maldives are made of more than 1000 islands and each island housing its own reef with one of the most spectacular marine life, so most activities are closely linked with water and if you don’t like snorkeling, canoeing, diving and things like that, this place is probably not for you.

BEACHES

White sandy beaches surrounded by palm trees are perfect to relax and read ,some good book (You can bring your or borrow one from the resort library.) There are no people, no noise so you can enjoy a slice of paradise just for yourself and get some tan. Also, there I found some wonderful shells that are actually the best souvenirs from this trip.

SNORKELING

The Maldives are famous for countless varieties of sea life and to see all that was a unique experience. We got a snorkeling equipment for free and spent hours exploring the underwater. I must admit that I was frightened almost every time I touched the sea because I have a terrible fear of sharks and they told us that we will probably see them while snorkeling. Okey, they also said that those we could see in the house reef are still babies, not bigger than 1,5 m and are not dangerous, but come on please, for me shark is a shark and I don’t think 1,5 m is small. I tried hard to ignore the fear because snorkeling there was absolutely breathtaking experience and I didn’t want to miss that. It was like being in a huge natural aquarium, full of exotic fish and colorful corals. We saw the shark only once while snorkeling and if you ask someone  braver about that they would probably  say that the shark was little, but I don’t have to point out how it looked to me. Let me just say that we immediately finished with all the water activities for that day.
The last day I was finally encouraged to swim to the coral edge and I’m still sorry that I wasn’t brave enough to see it before. It was absolutely breathtaking. The coral edge suddenly collapses to unknown depth. It looks so unreal, completely different marine life, rare species of fish, bigger than sharks and rays we saw before and they were not afraid of us. We could almost touch them how close we were. Amazing!!!

CANOEING & STAND-UP PADDLING

We could borrow a canoe and stand-up paddle board whenever we wanted for free. Not far from our island was a small uninhabited island with even more beautiful beaches.  We often  paddled to the island. There we were collecting coconuts, exploring the forest and chasing the crabs on the beach (or they were chasing us). We spent some great time and even saw the huge rays and sharks on the way there and I admit that I was much happier to see them from this perspective.

ACTIVITIES PROVIDED BY  MALDIVES RESORT

Every night we got the plan with activities for the next day so we could choose some. One that I liked the most was a dolphin cruise. After they introduced us with a different species of dolphins and showed us on a map locations where they regularly occur, we sailed on the open ocean to find them. The dolphins have some kind of routine, they are coming into the atolls in the early morning and leave again for the open ocean in the late afternoon so it is easy to find them. I saw them before in captivity, but it was a completely different feeling to watch them in their natural habitat.

 SPA AND WELLNESS CENTER

This is a perfect place to pamper  yourself after the whole day of swimming, snorkeling and canoeing. They offer an enormous range of treatments that will completely renew your body.

YOGA

The resort provides free yoga classes twice a day and there really is something for everyone, whether you are seeking pain relief or just relaxation. We often practice it no matter where we are and here we didn’t want to be limited with schedule so we asked for mat and practiced every evening on our terrace.

GYM

This was a daily routine. There is no better way to start your day and stay in shape during the vacation. The gym was brilliantly designed. There were no walls, it was all in glass so I had a feeling like I’m practicing outside and that was great especially if you consider that you can’t go jogging outside in the Maldives because it’s always around 30 degrees or more with high humidity.

The Maldives are not just about beaches, palm trees and sun if you thought so. There are plenty of activities for those who prefer more active vacation .I described you my favorite, but you can also try big game fishing, parasailing, whale watching, night diving and many more. Every resort provides different activities and you should choose a perfect one for you depending on what you like to do. Check out TripAdvisor  and Booking.com to find what suits you best. Think about that carefully while planning a trip because transport from one to another island is expensive and hard to organize so you will probably remain on the same whole trip.

Thanks for reading !!! If you have any other questions about Maldives feel free to ask me. 🙂

      Hi, I almost never use agency to plan a trip because I like to do it on my own. Check out TripAdvisor and Booking.com, I’m shure that you will find some great offers there.

    This post is really interesting, but why it is on 18th place in google’s search results.
    It deserves to be in top 5. Many webmasters think
    that seo is dead in 2016, but it is not true.
    There is sneaky method to reach google’s top 5 that
    not many people know. Just search for: pandatsor’s tools
