What Can I Do In The Maldives?

The Maldives is the perfect long-haul beach destination, great for relaxing and doing nothing. It's not just about laying on the beach and dipping your toes into the warm waters however as there is plenty of activities which you can do as well. Diving and snorkelling obviously rank highly on the activity list as the Maldives is one of the best dive destinations in the world. At certain times of the year, Manta Rays and Whale Sharks are visible and if your chosen island has a house reef, then you can expect to see a huge variety of marine life. There are other things to do as well such as sunset cruises, a picnic on a desert island or visits to a local island to see how the Maldivian people live. 

Where Should I Stay? 

The Maldives has over 150 hotels to choose from across its many Atolls.
