Family Fun in the Maldives

Family Fun in the Maldives
Looking to see if it is the best vacation spot for your family? There are tons of opportunities for family fun in the Maldives.

Set in the heart of the Indian Ocean, the Maldives is one of the most scenic holiday destinations in the world. If you are looking to see if it is the best vacation spot for your family, look no further. There are tons of opportunities for family fun in the sunny side of life.


Exploring a new environment is always an adventure. You could either snorkel the island’s house reef or venture beyond. A snorkelling safari allows you to explore multiple locations in search of vibrant fish, sea turtles, and other marine life. You just might spot a whale shark if you are lucky enough.

If you enjoy fishing, you can take a traditional Maldivian ‘dhoni’ (boat) out on the water around sunset. Alternatively, start your night right with a dolphin cruise. Watch the light of the setting sun bounce off them as they leap out of the water.

Feeling Sporty?

There is an abundance of watersports activities, both motorized and non-motorized. Snorkelling gear and floaties are usually free to borrow. However, motorized equipment like jet skis can be rented for an additional fee.

From the world-renown Chicken Break to smaller breaks that are perfect for beginners, Maldives is a surfer’s dream. Never picked up a board yet? After a few lessons, the whole family will be surf-ready in no time!

If you need a break from the water, there are still plenty of options. Play some tennis, beach volleyball, or even futsal with the kids. Almost every resort hosts a well-stocked game room with anything from board games to foosball, even video games.

Winding down

A relaxing massage is the best remedy for tired and weary bodies. Some resorts offer spa treatments for little ones too! Why not try out a father and son, or mother and daughter massage? The treatments facilitate a unique bonding experience.

There is more to come before tucking in for the night. After a day full of adventure, a themed dinner accompanied by good music is just the beginning of a relaxing night. Watching a movie together under the open sky illuminated by the stars followed by roasting marshmallows over a bonfire is the perfect end to a memorable day of family fun.
