Go on a Dolphin Cruise

The Maldives is one of the best places to catch the fun acrobatics of dolphins and more by joining a dolphin watching cruise during your holiday. They do have a predictable schedule so it’s fairly easy to choose either a morning or afternoon cruise.

Try Snorkelling

Colourful coral reefs teeming with abundant marine life will enable both adults and kids to have an unforgettable underwater adventure. While it is possible to go diving throughout the year, the best time to do so is considered to be during the months of April to October.

Kids Clubs

Enrol your little ones at a fun Kid’s Club available at many family hotels in Maldives including the likes of Niyama Private Islands Maldives. A variety of educational and entertaining activities such as nature walks and cooking classes are conducted just for them to enjoy!

Catch Some Waves

The sheltered sandy bottomed lagoons provide kids with a safe environment to take up surf lessons. Wetsuits won’t be required but rash guards are definitely recommended to protect your little ones from the harsh equatorial rays.
