10 Things To Do In Maldives
of the reasons we love swimming is that there’s no talking to be done.
It’s just our favourite and the noise of water in my ears, its taste in
my mouth. Besides, all of us grew up by the sea, in Sardinia
and not the weekend in the summer goes by without going to the beach.
Snorkeling is mostly one of favorite things to do by traveler and the
rumor had it that it reaches a
whole different level in the Maldives.
guess that rumor was right. One of the biggest Maldives
attractions is its marine life, and one of the
nicest things to do in Maldives is snorkeling. Within moments of
getting in the water, we spotted an incredible variety of colored fish
and corals. It couldn’t get any better than that.
had seen people doing water flying in Sardinia and it never occurred to
me to try that. Then we saw it was on offer at Adaaran
Hudhuranfushi, one of the splendid resorts where we
stayed in Maldives, and decided to give it a try. It was one of the most fun things
to do in Maldives that we got to experience, though we admit that it
could hardly stand.
flying requires a lot of strength in the legs and abs, which we thought
we had. Guess every traveler need to train more for that, but either
way, every time all the traveler were pushed back in the water everyone
could laughed it off. It was a blast. It definitely is what to do in
Maldives for a good laugh.
tubing is one of the craziest things to do in Maldives
of the coolest things to do in Maldives. we had tried it in Eilat in
March, and wanted to do it again. When another one of the bloggers who
had been invited to the conference, said it was available at our resort
and asked others to join on the experience, we had no doubts.
was an intense 8
minutes of laughter and screaming. Fun tubing has to be one of the
craziest things to do in the Maldives. It’s a million miles away from
the romantic picture that most people have of this paradise archipelago,
and yet so much part of it!
are sure not afraid of heights. We also have done zip
lining in Argentina, and it was meant to be super scary
but I was ok. With this in mind, we decided to give parasailing a try.
After all, this is what to do in Maldives to see it from above, right?
it is a must do in Maldives, we went parasailing. A quick boat ride and
the sail was spread for me, and up we were, going in the air. It was a breathtaking 15
minutes for me. Literally. we spent the first minute thinking it was
rather cool. Then realized the boat down there was way too small. Then
as we started screaming and wanted to go down. Then closed my eyes
for a few moments to take some very deep breaths.
we calmed down, and enjoyed the time we spent in the air, admiring
the gorgeous sea around me. It really is one of the nicest things to do

of the experience diver there said that diving is what to do in Maldives
to fully appreciate its beauty. As he never omitted to say that, with
the love for the sea that feel, there was no excuse for everyone not to
dive. So when we learned that Adaaran
Prestige Vadoo, the second resort we stayed at, offered
diving from the shore and that we wouldn’t have to put up with my epic
sea sickness, we thought it was my chance.
we really wanted to check whether diving really is one of the greatest
things to do in Maldives. All we have to say is a massive YES, it is. Absolutely
fantastic. In the 41 minutes we spent under
water, at a depth of 12 meters, we surely that everyone would admired a
huge variety of fish, including sharks and an eagle ray. The only regret
that we have is that we haven’t started diving sooner. Im sure everyone
would hooked and want to do it more often!
is just one of nicest things to do in Maldives
thing hadn’t realized before going, is that the Maldives have some of
waves in the world. We didn’t try surfing
myself, because apparently the waves are for quite advanced surfers. But
we have seen several people surf and I concluded that surfing has to be
one of the top things to do in Maldives.
we did try stand up paddle (SUP) though, and it was fun. The water was
very smooth, and I could see the corals and fish below! SUP is what to
do in Maldives for a fun, chilled and easy (well, sort of!) sport and
great water views.

a SPA treatment
the things to do in Maldives, there’s having a spa treatment. We surely
appreciate that! We are tremendously busy, all the time. When we travel,
we move from one place to the other. When we stayed at home, we mostly
spend my days sitting at my desk, creating content for this blog and
managing my online business. We hardly have time for beauty treatments.
Yet when we feel we owe them to ourselves.
the manager of Adaaran
Prestige Vadoo mentioned the presence
of a SPA at the resort and suggested that one of the top things to do in
Maldives is going for a Balinese
massage, We had to check it out. We just did it so that we
could confirm what he said, and for good measure we also booked myself
in for a facial and a manicure.
manager was right: doing a SPA treatment is what to do in Maldives.
no doubt that admiring the sunset is one of the top things to do in
Admiring a splendid sunset (or

sunrise. And it is well known that one of the nicest things to do in
Maldives is admiring that special

overwater bungalow – most resorts in Maldives have them. The effect is
fantastic. This is what to do in Maldives for a quintessential local
we were starved before arriving in the Maldives. we also had spent 3
full weeks in Sri
Lanka, where we weren’t a real fan of the
local cuisine. Forgive me, but we can’t stand curries and the
overpowering taste of garlic. We was relieved to see that the choice of
food in the Maldives is incredible. And the quality outstanding.
there’s one thing that is not missing in the Maldives, that is good
food. From fresh tropical fruit to delicious fish; from barbecued meat
to Japanese or Italian cuisine; one of the greatest things to do in
Maldives is eating. I made sure to complete the experience with a

villas that have direct access to the sea. All we can say

pool and a deck for sunbathing; as well as a jacuzzi at the back. The
only noise one can hear is that of the breeze and of the sea. And the
view is simply spectacular. It is so relaxing that we concluded that
staying in an overwater bungalow is definitely what to do in Maldives.
there’s more. In my years of travel, we have seen many amazing hotels
but we have hardly had the opportunity to enjoy the comforts offered.
Finally we were able to actually make use of my beautiful room. we’d say
that relaxing in a gorgeous room is one of the nicest things to do in
Maldives. All we can say is that we didn’t want to leave!
