5. Tour the Islands On Board a Seaplane
Although it may seem like an extravagant activity, the fact is that traveling the islands on board a seaplane is one of the most popular excursions on trips to the Maldives. In fact, the hydroplane is one of the most used means of transport on the islands.
When you are flying over the archipelago, you can see its full extent and you will have the opportunity to take really spectacular photographs. If the nerves allow it, of course!
6. Dining Under the Sea
One of the most popular hotels in the Maldives, the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island has a restaurant under the sea located exactly 4.9 meters deep. Both the roof and its walls are reinforced glass, so you can watch while you eat the marine fauna in full activity. The truth is that this is one of the most incredible experiences you can experience in the Maldives.
7. Ice Skating
Yes, we have not been wrong. In Maldives you can also skate on ice despite being a tropical island. You can go from taking a bath in the waters of the Indian Ocean to ice skating in just a couple of minutes.
The culprit that this is possible is the resort Jumeirah Vittaveli, who has designed a track for ice skating on a beach in the Maldives. Of course, it is obviously not an ice rink to use, it has been manufactured with a complex molecular technology.
8. Visit a Desert Island
We have all dreamed of being on a desert island. Or at least the idea has crossed our mind when answering the hackneyed question about what you would take to an uninhabited island. Well, in the Maldives you will have the opportunity to visit a completely deserted and virgin island.
This is another of the most popular excursions in Maldives because there are not many places where you can do this kind of activities. And is that only 203 islands of the almost 1,200 that make up the territory of the Republic of Maldives are inhabited. If you have always dreamed of knowing how a shipwreck feels, this tour will enchant you.
9. Losing Yourself in Your Capital
Viajes Maldives are not complete without a visit to Male, the archipelago’s capital. There are numerous places to visit in this city, but what we recommend is to lose you in its streets to learn about the customs and traditions of this country. They will surprise you much more than you imagine.
