So in amongst the palm trees, golden sandbanks and beaches of the islands, some of The Maldives most beautiful experiences are underwater! Wild right? So dive in! (no pun intended) and explore the jaw-dropping tropical marine life! Rainbowfish, Nemo's, Dory's, whatever multi-coloured you can think of, you can probably see it here in the Maldives. One of the few places in the world with thriving, abundant marine life. Home to whale sharks, manta rays and many gentle giants of the ocean! Although large in size, both have a diet of mainly plankton and small fish, so DW they're not going to eat you... Unless you resemble a small fish, and in that case, we bid you good luck. These gentle giants live harmoniously in the crystal clear waters, and the experience of seeing them up close and personal is out of this world. One you will for sure be telling the grandkids about. Plus, you can use your snorkel & mask for some fun drinking games when you're home. Memories on memories, ya know.
This may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the Maldives. Still, one of the most essential parts of the biodiversity of the Indian ocean is keeping it that way. Clean beaches = clean tourism = longevity, ya feel? Learn about the marine ecosystems and how fishing plays a vital role in the Maldives' beauty. Give a helping hand to keep those dreamy white sandy beaches and stunning shorelines clear of plastic. You'll not only be living your best life in paradise, but you'll also be helping maintain the Maldives, and that, for one, deserves a beer or cocktail in celebration afterwards.
I mean, BBQs are banging anyway. So imagine having one on an idyllic, secluded sandbank lined with palm trees after spending the day snorkelling and island hopping the turquoise blue waters of the Maldives. Dreamy AF, right? The sunsets in the Maldives are world-famous, so a beachfront BBQ overlooking the ocean as the sun goes down is perfection. Ding, ding, ding, we have a winner! The nights are just as exciting as the day. DID SOMEONE SAY BEACH PARTY?! Grab that cool box, sip some beers and let the magic of the Maldives take over you. 10/10 1000+ likes guaranteed on the gram kind of settings.
Because really, how much more delicious would dinner taste if you learnt how it was caught yourself? Yep! It's a must in the Maldives. Fishing is a way of life and super important to the locals and their businesses. They've practically mastered the art of it, and some are happy to share their wisdom! So give it a go, learn the motion of the ocean and the stories behind it. We can guarantee your taste buds will be tingling at the feeling of satisfaction as you devour that 'catch of the day!'
If you aren't currently picturing yourself right now laying out on a golden sandy beach with the sun beaming down on you to the sound of the trickle of the ocean gently flowing well, you're missing out, dude.
