Things to do in Maldives

When you are thinking of holidaying in the Maldives, the first question you want to ask is "What can I do in the Maldives?"

What is there to do in Maldives?

The Maldives is famed for its rare underwater beauty. The profusion of psychedelic colours and the abundance and variety of life underwater have fascinated divers and snorkellers since Maldives was discovered as a scuba diving destination.

The highest level of visibility that one could expect- sometimes exceeding 50 metres - and warm temperatures throughout the year makes diving in the Maldives a delight you would want to experience over and over again.

Here we have made a list of activities offered by most resorts in the Maldives to make your Maldives holidays memorable and fun. In addition to these activates individual resorts will have resort specific actives planned for your holiday in the Maldives. So always ask the travel agent or email the resort directly "what are the things to do in Maldives"
