Why the Maldives is the Perfect Family Destination
Planning a holiday that the whole family will enjoy is no easy task; luckily, you get a destination like the Maldives which offers dream getaways for parents and kids alike!
Amongst the unique aspects of holidays here is the chance to stay at private island resorts, especially those in the North Male Atoll of the Maldives; villas are ideally positioned over tranquil waters where you can have a dip anytime you choose or beside the beach where kids can enjoy spending their time playing.
While you can spend lots of quality family time together, resorts such as Grand Park Kodhipparu also feature separate facilities for adults and little ones. This includes a kids’ club with fun activities, while babysitting services are on offer too; meanwhile, parents can indulge in some soothing spa rituals together!
At resorts in Maldives, you will find an array of water sports. Apart from snorkelling at house reefs which is not to be missed, you get PADI-certified dive centres that offer diving for kids too. Banana boat and fun tube rides are also family favourites, while kayaking, parasailing, stand-up paddling and jet-skiing are on offer as well.
For a memorable excursion, you can take a cruise to spot dolphins on a traditional boat called a dhoni. You can also plan to visit secluded sandbanks or watch a movie under the stars on the beach. Some resorts even have a resident marine biologist giving families a chance to learn more about coral and marine life.
