Male Attractions

The Maldives are one of the most amazing destinations to spend a great vacation in. You can choose to relax on the white sandy beaches while appreciating the splendor of aquamarine waters, or you can join in the fun that Maldives attractions have to offer.

Outdoor Activities
The fabulous year long warm weather makes the Maldives a delightful place for diving aficionados; great weather is responsible for clear waters offering visibility exceeding 50 meters in some instances; great for scuba diving and snorkeling.

Surfing has become another one of the most popular Maldives attractions and with the average size of reef breakers of 4-5 feet intensifying to 8-10 feet during surf monsoons (February through November), it can be a lot of fun.

Fishing trips, another of Maldives attractions, are also an exciting way to get the most of your vacation. Big game and night fishing are big activities, with night fishing offering great excitement.

Unique
Among unique Maldives attractions, the Whale Submarine Maldives tops the list. You can visit the depths of the Indian Ocean in a state of the art whale submarine, the largest passenger submarine in the world. The descent to the reefs is quite exciting; the first stop comes at 25 feet in depth, where you can appreciate beautiful corals and fish. Going further down you’ll have the opportunity to see white tip reef sharks as well as the largest groupers in the Maldives.

Tip: Take one of the Submarine evening cruises. It’s quite an adventure. You’ll see sleeping manta rays and magnificent schools of fish.

The Sites and Museums

Many of the islands offer interesting sights, as well as small but important museums displaying the history of the islands. They are an important part of Maldives attractions.

Visitors should not miss a visit to Biyadoo Island, with its beautiful vistas and Manafaru with its incredible wildlife. Though you can find more attractions in a place like Male, other islands have much to offer.

Among Males’ attractions is the National Museum which displays photographs and artifacts relating to the history of the islands. A different type of Maldives attraction but perhaps just as intriguing is the Male fish market; fishermen bring their catch on a daily basis while café and restaurant owners flock to make their purchases. The whole interaction is an experience.

Among other popular islands that make for great Maldives attractions, are Baron and Kurumba; these are larger islands with fabulous health spas. There are water taxis as well as luxury yachts to take you to and from the airport.

The more serious divers will enjoy the secluded island of Waadhu, with a hotel consisting of cottages built on stilts. Bodufinolhu also known as the island of fun is now on the list of most visited Maldives attractions. Its lagoon of pale aquamarine water makes the perfect setting for gentler water sports.

The Maldives are a great attraction for their breathtaking beauty. Everyone can agree that they are the place for everyone to enjoy.
