Apart from working on your tan and sipping sunset cocktails, set aside time on your island holiday for some of these iconic Maldivian experiences.
1. Stargazing at Soneva Fushi
Maldives’ remote location makes it one of the best places to enjoy the night sky, but to really up your stargazing game, plan your stay at Soneva Fushi to enjoy their astronomical observatory. Peer through the lenses of their state-of-the-art telescope and feast your eyes on awe-inspiring observations of the night sky. Expect to see razor-sharp images ranging from the Plough of Saturn to the craters on the moon, along with celestial bodies that are usually invisible from the rest of the world.
2. Swim with manta rays and whale sharks
Every year between June to October, larger numbers of manta rays are drawn to the higher levels of plankton in Maldivian waters. A few resorts like Komandoo Maldives Island Resort and Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru offer guests the unique opportunity to not only spot but also snorkel with these majestic creatures. Locating them may get tricky, but you will be guided by experienced crews who know the waters and the creatures’ patterns extremely well. It most certainly will be a swim to remember!
Make a trip to Vaadhoo Island in Raa Atoll to watch the sea come alive at night. The island is known for its natural phenomena of bioluminescent phytoplankton, which emit a soft blue glow. The result is a sight to behold when night falls — a glow in the dark beach, with these magical organisms twinkling like stars in the shallow waters that lap the shore.
