Join in on the fun and meet fellow travelers

You can also go on a picnic in some of Maldives’ deserted islands. Some resorts organize parties and evening entertainment where you can dance the night away. Staying in a guesthouse, instead of a plush hotel, will give you the chance to experience the island the Maldivian way and get to know their culture and local cuisines.
Ride on a dhoni

Experience riding one when you go on a leisurely cruise to any island or even when you just want to go snorkeling or fishing. Add more fun to it when you go night fishing and compete among your friends on who had the best catch. You can also ask your in-house chef to cook your catch for you.
Soak in the Maldivian heritage
More than the sun, the sea, and the sand, Maldives has a rich heritage that travelers must experience. Island hopping is the best way to know how the Maldivians live. Discover handicrafts made of locally-sourced materials such as mats made of dried reeds, robes with intricate embroideries, or even toys made with coconut leaves. For art lovers, a visit to the National Museum of Maldives is a great way to know Maldives’ history.
With these must-try activities in Maldives, no wonder is has been named as one of the best places to be. Enjoy not only the sun, but the serenity and the energy this island has to offer.
