The Top 5 Adventurous Things To Do in the Maldives


I hope you all had happy New Years! With 2018 already here, I’ve been thinking about my travel plans. Always chasing the sun, especially when I need to escape winter here in Canada, it really makes me reminisce about my time in the Maldives. If you’re planning a winter escape in 2018, I highly recommend visiting these picturesque atolls (another word for islands)! Lounging beachside can be fun for a few days, though more adventurous activities call my name!  Accor Hotels offers terrific winter getaway experiences in the Maldives, with packages that include loads of fun activities. If you’re an adventurer like me, be sure to check them out!  Here are my top five favourite adventure activities:



1. Snorkeling

I can never seem to get enough! I’ve always found it so exhilarating and so much fun! Ask your local guide to take you to the best spots. When I was there, we were fortunate to visit a turtle hub. We saw at least 8 turtles, it was fantastic! If you’re a first-timer, don’t fret! Snorkeling can be a little intimidating at first, but once you get the basics down, you’re basically a pro!

2. Visit the Capital

Visiting the capital is a great way to see the local culture. Male is the capital city (island) of the Maldives. Despite the city’s small size, it offers some great attractions like museums, parks, and the famous Old Friday Mosque. For more information on my tour in Male, visit my Male Blog Post



3. Parasailing


Parasailing can be loads of fun, yet challenging. My mom, an experienced parasailer, taught me while we were vacationing in the Maldives. I recommend taking a lesson if you’re new at this like I am.





4. Island Hopping

Being stationed on one atoll can be a little dull at times, why not explore other atolls and sandbanks? Grab your sea kayak or hire a small boat to take you atoll hopping. There are some stunning beaches to be explored, you won’t want to miss them! Find the best beaches in the Maldives HERE




5. Scuba Diving

From diving with sharks to swimming through some of the world’s most beautiful dive sites, the Maldives offers some of the best scuba diving in the world! Find out where to dive by visiting: Scuba Diving in the Maldives
