Tucked in a quiet corner of the Indian Ocean is an idyllic chain of islands known as the Maldives. Known for its abundance of luxurious resorts and stunning natural beauty, the Maldives have earned their spot on most traveler’s bucket lists.
What do you do when you get to the Maldives? Aside from soaking up the sun, here are five must-have experiences while in this tropical paradise.
Private Beach Picnic
If you are looking for peace, quiet, and a unique experience, then a private beach picnic is just the thing for you. Enjoy a delicious gourmet meal prepared by a local chef as you sit back and enjoy your tranquil surroundings.
Snorkeling and Diving
Snorkeling and diving in the Maldives is an absolute must. The crystal clear turquoise waters provide you with excellent visibility. The abundance of reefs around the island will dazzle you with their collection of colorful and exotic fish.
Dhoni Sunset Cruise
Dhoni is a traditional Maldivian boat that makes it the perfect vessel for a sunset cruise. Watch the sun setting over the horizon as you cruise around the islands. If you are lucky, you may even spot some spinner dolphins swimming by.
Try Mas Huni
For the traveler who is looking to experience the local flavor, mas huni is just the dish. This traditional Maldivian breakfast is made of finely chopped tuna, onion, coconut, and chili. While it is a far cry from eggs and bacon, you might be surprised by how much you enjoy the tangy and fresh flavor of mas huni.
Dance along to the Bodu Beru
The Bodu Beru is a traditional Maldivian performance consisting of rhythmic drumming, singing, and dancing. The atmosphere around the performance is exhilarating and will give you a feel for the local culture and traditions.
The Maldives is high on the list for many honeymooners and those seeking a tropical getaway with pristine beaches and azure waters, but the islands are also perfect for families as well as couples or solos looking for a retreat to simply relax, recharge and reconnect.
