Sep 02, 2020 Stories of a Small Island

Even though the Maldives has been welcoming tourists for five decades, there are still many people who have missed the chance of a holiday in one of the most beautiful destinations in the world.

If you are planning your fist trip to this tropical island destination and you are wondering about the “Must Do’s when travelling to Maldives”, here are 5 activities you should consider adding to your Maldives bucket list:

1. Explore the Underwater World

The most obvious option on your bucket list is to explore the magical and unique underwater world of the Maldives. Make sure to book a resort that has a flourishing house reef close to shore so you can discover what is going on underwater near the resort before you head out on snorkelling excursions. Resorts like Milaidhoo Island Maldives offer various excursions to snorkel and dive spots. You can visit different types of reefs and be amazed by underwater attractions such as Manta Rays, Whale Sharks (during season) as well as turtles and other marine life. You can opt in for private diving or reef diving in small groups, night dives and even fluo night dives or join an excursion to one of the know spots to for Manta Ray diving (during season). Nitrox diving is also available upon request at Milaidhoo Island Maldives.

2. Discover Overwater Activities

Excursions, water sports and boat trips are available so you can experience all the waters around the Maldives in comfort. Stay active but never too busy to appreciate the natural marine environment and enjoy the moment. Excursions to find wild dolphins as well as fishing trips and sunset cruises are available at most resorts. Milaidhoo Island Maldives offers a variety of excursions in small groups or exclusively by private arrangement, and various non-motorised water sports (complimentary) as well as day trips and dining on a luxury yacht.

The Maldives are known for unique and exceptional dining experiences, such as dining over water for example at Ba’theli Lounge & Restaurant – the first fine dining restaurant that offers island cuisine inspired by the Maldivian Spice Route, set in the lagoon on traditional Maldivian boats.

3. Explore a Tropical Island

If you haven’t seen it with your own eyes, you will not believe the beauty of the Maldives. Picture perfect turquoise lagoons, white powder-sand beaches, lush tropical greenery and swaying coconut palms.  You need time to take it all in. Wander around the island – in many cases that only takes a few minutes – learn about island life and admire the flowers and trees. In addition, you can treat yourself to exquisite culinary experiences, as most resorts offer a wide variety of international and local dishes. Milaidhoo boasts three restaurants, with menus incorporating dishes from Europe, Asia and the Maldives, being home to the first fine dining restaurant in the world serving exclusively Maldivian cuisine. Dine on the beach, on a sandbank, on a luxury yacht while cruising the atoll, in the privacy of your villa or wherever you wish at Milaidhoo.

4. Experience a Touch of Romance

Rest assured, the Maldives is the best destination in the world for your honeymoon or, if you are travelling with your family or friends, romance will touch your heart. Sunsets are magical, and the gentle caress of surf on the beach under the stars is soothing. A simple dinner on the beach at Milaidhoo might become a romantic moment to remember. You can choose if you want to embark on a romantic journey with private sunset cruises, a spa treatment for a couple or dinner for two on a secluded sandbank – or simply unwind, soak up the romantic ambience of a small island and relax.

5. Relax Where Nothing matters

In the Maldives you will find the time to relax and do nothing.  There are no ancient monuments you have to see, no shopping malls you have to visit and no boring tours to miss. Once you reach Milaidhoo, nothing matters. The clock will tick your way giving you the time and freedom to be yourself. The turtle you missed seeing today, might just swim by again tomorrow. You can safely relax and unwind with the assurance that a day spent on your own terms where nothing matters is a day well spent.
