Try various watersports
Yearning for some thrill? Well, indulge in watersports to get an adrenaline kick. From kayaking and paddleboarding to jet skiing and parasailing, the Maldives offers a great variety of exciting activities to experience. If the underwater world is calling you, then consider learning scuba diving. Thankfully, the Maldives is the best place for that! Through scuba diving, the two of you will be able to explore marvelous marine life and create cherished moments together. Most island resorts offer scuba diving lessons in their packages, which is a huge bonus.
Enjoy an outdoor movie screening
The Maldives is known for some of the world's most stunning outdoor cinemas. Just imagine the two of you watching an exciting movie with the dazzling ocean or tropical jungles as your backdrop! However, only a limited number of resorts offer such extraordinary experiences. Typically hotels organize such events on a regular schedule. Some do it on request, which means you can ask for a private movie screening. One of the most incredible experiences is offered by Soneva Jani — the resort features a giant screen located overwater. So forget your worries, sit back and enjoy classic or contemporary cinema pieces while sipping on refreshing cocktails.
Admire the Sea of Stars
The Sea of Stars is a magical phenomenon in the riffs of the Maldives. Once the sun sets, you can see thousands of tiny fluorescent blue specs glowing in the ocean. And this view is truly mesmerizing! The most well-known spot for admiring this unique phenomenon is near the shore of the Vaadhoo islands. The water here is filled with bioluminescent phytoplankton, and the movement of the waves creates a magical shimmering effect. The best time to experience the Sea of Stars is from June to December, when there are greater volumes of plankton in the sea. Still, this phenomenon is quite unpredictable, so you need a little bit of luck!
