Things To Do In Maldives Luxury Resorts

Maldives is a paradise like no other, with a summer all year-round, this tropical island nation located in the Indian Ocean is an ideal destination for those who want to experience a fine tropical holiday. Below mentioned are the five cool things to do during your holiday in Maldives.

Go Scuba Diving and Snorkeling

Maldives welcomes both beginners and expert divers, offering a glimpse of rare marine creatures. You can go on either morning or afternoon dive trips offered by certain resorts (such as our Maldives Luxury Resort Amaya Kuda Rah), while full day diving is also available. For those who are travelling with kids, you will find an area with shallow waters where the little ones can swim and play. Another must-visit is the Banana Reef, a protected marine area that is home to various species of reef fishes.

Visit a Local Fish Market

Male, the capital of Maldives, offers a few inland attractions and they reveal more of the colorful Maldivian culture. First on the list is the Male Fish Market, the city’s commercial center, where you will see hundreds of freshly-caught fish and other seafood. The market is most crowded during the mid-afternoon, when the sailboats arrive to unload the day’s catch. Fish are usually laid on the floor, and the moment they are displayed, buyers automatically flock to the open-sided market. Fresh fruits and vegetables also available here.

Parasailing

You will never run out of fun water activities in Maldives! While it is true that it is sunny here all year round, the most suitable months for parasailing is from December to April. Even if you’re a beginner, there’s no need to worry because parasailing is one of the safest yet most exciting water sports in the world. Participants are usually taken by a motorboat in the middle of the water and that’s where you will take off. Two of the best places in Maldives for parasailing are the Furanafushi and Vihamanaafushi, both of which are located at the North Male Atoll.

Take a Stroll in the Sultan Park

There are not many public parks in Maldives where you can stroll around, making Sultan Park a must-visit. It is located on the southern side of the former Royal Palace Grounds of Male. It has a massive Iron Gate that welcomes visitors and a pond filled with water lilies. There are also shady trees where you can rest and simply enjoy the green oasis. At night, the is beautifully illuminated when artificial trees light up.

Learn to Surf

There are three major surfing zones in Maldives, which have different peak seasons. First, there’s the Male Atolls, where waves are the most suitable for surfing from March to October. Next is the Central Atolls, a great surfing destination from May to August. Meanwhile, the Outer Atolls have two surfing seasons: one from late February to April and the other one from late August to October. You can either go on a resort-based surfing activity or charter a private boat to take you to all the surfing destinations on the atoll of your choice.
