Activities in Maldives
With its seaside environment it is not surprising that many of the recreational activities available in the Maldives focus on water activities. An extensive array of water sports will draw the attention of the enthusiast.

Diving
The warm seas of Maldives have high visibility throughout the year, with water clear enough to see the passing fish as far as fifty metres away at times. Add to that the marvelous formation of over 3000 coral reefs and the free flowing tides of the monsoons. The result of these perfect conditions have created one of the world’s richest diving coral reef areas. Over a thousand species of fish and other underwater creatures inhabit the Maldivian waters. The monsoon tides of the Indian Ocean create a collection of small marine creatures as well as microscopic plant cells. This in turn creates a hub for all kinds of underwater species who gather in these waters lured by the abundance of food.

Surfing
In a place that is more sea than land, there is no end to the fun things you do in the water. Maldivians swim for recreation, they play water polo with their friends at weekend picnics, they surf addictively. The visitor is not excepted: every single resort of the Maldives has a sports centre that provides a range of water sports activities.

Spa
Just lying on a deserted beach of a Maldivian island, taking in nothing but the continuous rhythm of the waves, the sea salt in the air and feeling the soft white sand on your bare feet is enough to sooth your senses. Each island with its green vegetation and secluded setting is a natural spa in its own right, designed to soothe, caress, and heal.

Spas set in the Maldives, thus, are perfected as the ultimate getaway cocoons in the middle of the vast Indian Ocean. Traditional healing methods, that have been passed on for generations as family secrets by the hakeembe (healing experts), have been incorporated into special spa programs in the Maldivian islands.

The types of treatments vary with each spa but you can get almost any world-class treatment in a Maldivian spa. Every Maldivian resort has a spa; some of them nestled deep within thick vegetation, others sitting in solitude on a wooden jetty built on the lagoon, and some even built underwater.

Seaplane photo flight
Seaplane photo flight offers you the sightseeing sensation that gives you the opportunity of a lifetime. Enjoy your unparalleled Maldives holiday experience from the sky in one of the De Havilland DHC 6 Twin Otter seaplanes. The seaplanes are ideal for sightseeing and photography. Their high wings, large view windows and untainted glass present panoramic views and unrivaled photo opportunities. The excitement of landing and taking-off from the sea is truly memorable.

You are guaranteed a magical tour above some of the most spectacular scenery in the Maldives. You will fly over the shallow lagoons, pristine and uninhabited islands, a variety of tourist resort islands, fishing villages and the continuously hue-shifting seas of the Maldives. Watch schools of dolphins, Manta and sting rays, and schools of fish as they cavort in the crystal clear waters.
