Experiences

The special topography of Maldives’ coralline islands means that most resorts have a ‘house’ reef which can be accessed directly from the beach. The clarity and temperature of the water make it one of the best snorkeling destinations in the world. Expect to encounter reef sharks, dolphins, turtles and shoals of colourful reef fish just meters from the shore. The Maldivian archipelago of tropical islands in a string of circular atolls is spectacular from the air. 

 

Choose a resort with a seaplane transfer for a remarkable aerial view. Experience golden hour on the water and take a sunset cruise on a traditional wooden boat, or Dhoni. Join a snorkelling tour to the protected South Ari Atoll for a chance to swim with the largest fish in the ocean; the magnificent whale shark. Assist in a coral planting activity, a special experience which highlights the fragile beauty of Maldives’ marine ecosystem. All resorts boast an excellent array of guest facilities such as a dive centre and watersports centre, while those on larger islands may also feature tennis courts Parents will love the ease of kids’ clubs. Be sure to check age restrictions, as these can vary between resorts.
