A tranquil haven for travellers of deep blue seas and spectacular atolls, Maldives is perhaps one of the few destinations in the world that offers its travellers countless possibilities of making a holiday truly unforgettable. From its fascinating coral gardens and stunning reefs, it comes as no surprise that most of the leisure activities in Maldives encapsulate the beauty of the crystalline, azure waters of the Indian Ocean.

Visitors who travel around the island never cease to be amazed by its languishing idyll living, as more often than not, travellers are seen simply sitting on the beach, gazing at the rhythmic waves of the ocean. However, it only takes one mere glance at the country to realize that it is much more than what meets the eye.

As the pinnacle destination for water sports, the island provides an array of leisure activities involving its vast expanse of beaches. Sprung up around the island, the resorts offer its guests the needed equipment and gear to engage in the thrilling sport. Some of them include diving, snorkelling, surfing, parasailing, kayaking, jet skiing, water skiing, kite surfing, wind surfing, sailing and catamaran sailing. Among such activities, surfing remains as the leading crowd-puller, attracting people from all walks of life. A sport defined as an adrenaline pumping and heart beating activity, the massive swells and breaks experienced in Island, especially during the monsoon period are perfect for surfing aficionados. In addition, most resorts provide training courses to novices and beginners, allowing them to get into the action.

Another attraction that tourists find alluring is the excursions around the island. Having around 2000 islands, both inhabited and uninhabited, touring from one island to another is an enjoyable experience as it gives the travellers an insight to Maldivian lifestyle and culture. From the fishing villages to the metropolitan cities to desert islands, one can find many things to do whilst touring the islands such as night fishing. Having gained popularity among the locals, night fishing allows you to embark before sunset and experience the sensation of catching fish. If that alone is not enough to satisfy the discerning traveller, visiting a virgin island will definitely prove to be worthy. A place where one can celebrate a quiet time with your loved one, perhaps have a picnic on the beach, it is a heavenly retreat, untouched by man. A land of remarkable surroundings of natural vegetation, dazzling waters and sun-beamed sandy beaches, the day trip will be a fascinating experience, especially in the night where a canvas of brilliant starry lights unfold before your eyes.

A place ideal for honeymoons, travellers can also indulge in shopping or relax in the spa and wellness centres. Offering an idyllic bliss of serenity with nothing but happy thoughts evading your relaxed mind, Maldives is truly a dreamland come true.
