How the Maldives Makes Use of Its Best Resource

How the Maldives Makes Use of Its Best Resource

With its heavenly combination of sun, sea and sand the Maldives is one of the most spectacular places on earth.

Set like jewels in the Indian Ocean, the Maldives rarely have a bad weather day. Indeed the locals enjoy year-round sunshine, it really is a non-stop heat wave.

Like all tropical countries the seasons see-saw from wet to dry. During the wet season you get beautiful refreshing rain to cool down the humid day. And in the dry season the humidity drops and the sun smiles all day long.

Sporting Play

Blessed with this extraordinary climate and weather, the Maldives are the perfect place to become acquainted with many different types of water sport.

Some of the most popular ways to get wet are snorkelling and scuba diving.


Absolutely anyone can try out snorkelling. It is a simple, fun and safe way of seeing the extraordinary underwater shallows of the Maldives. It requires very limited equipment, which can be hired at low-cost, and you don’t even have to be a regular in your swimming costume to be able to dive straight in.

There are many instructors on hand in the Maldives to give you essential tips and direct you to some of the finest snorkelling spots in the world.

Scuba Diving

Scuba diving is for those who want a little bit more adventure, though it can even be done by first-timers. And with numerous diving centres offering world-class instruction from PADI licensed teachers, the Maldives is a great place to learn.

Scuba diving you will take you deeper than snorkelling, meaning you will get to see even more of the unique coral reefs and exotic fish that the islands have to offer. What’s more the PADI training you will receive is recognised all over the world, so you can swim under whichever sea you visit.

Getting Wet

There are a whole load of other exciting water sports for you to enjoy on the pristine Maldivian ocean. You will find that hotels and guesthouses offer access to many of these sports, and if your accommodation is missing the one you want, you will easily be able to find somewhere else that offers it.

If boating about is your thing then the Maldives offers sea kayaking, canoeing, catamaran sailing, and jet-skiing.

If you want to take advantage of the natural surf and the sea breezes then why not try out the surfing, windsurfing, kite surfing, or parasailing?

If something a little less adrenaline pumping is your thing then hop on a banana boat and get towed around, or try out knee boarding, and fun tubing.

Taking it to another level

Modern technological wonders make much that was previously difficult now easy, underwater scooters are just such an example of this. They are perfect if you aren’t a confident swimmer or diver, so there is no need to miss out on the underwater fun. Even if you’re an experienced diver you can still be wowed by these machines.

Travelling solo or in pairs these scooters have a motor and breathing equipment so all you have to do is hold on and enjoy the ride.

Finally, for those who want to see the underwater world without having to shower the salt water from their hair afterwards there is the underwater spa. This is just how it sounds: you can go for the full spa treatment and watch the fishes swim by at the same time. With glass walls through which the sub aquatic world can be view this just might seem a little bit like an aquarium, but when have you ever worn a face mask in an aquarium? 

Only in the Maldives!!
