I don’t think there’s a water sport that does not exist in the Maldives; the country is mostly water, so you can’t expect any less. 

As a fan of water sports, whether it is the adrenaline-pumping ones like scuba diving, kite surfing, fly boarding, and snorkeling, or the milder ones like catamaran sailing, kayaking, riding in glass-bottom boats, and banana boat rides, the Maldives got it.

You can enjoy your sports with sunshine, monsoon wind, and the consistent waves of the atolls. Each of these water sports is better enjoyed during the right season. 

According to Best Travel, The best time to visit the Maldives is between November and April, outside of the monsoon season. It is recommended to visit around March and April (excluding the Easter holidays when pricing is more expensive) when you will enjoy hot, dry weather and quieter resorts.

5. Home of Seafood

If you are a fan of fresh seafood, then you will fall in love with the Maldivian dishes. Tuna fish, among other sea foods abound in various Maldivian waters. These are used to prepare diverse mouthwatering dishes influenced mostly by Indian and Sri Lankan recipes.
