Your visit to Bandos Island Resort and Spa is not complete without trying your hand at the local pastime of fishing.
Bait your hook, drop your line direct from a Dhoni to the reef and hope for a nibble as you watch the spectacular colours of the sunset and listen to the ocean waves lap the surrounding islands. After two hours of fishing for your own supper, we prepare a delicious barbecue on a beach at Bandos Maldives. While you are waiting to barbecue your catch you will be entertained with spectacular ‘bodu beru’ (local music with drums, rhythm and dance). After dinner you can just sit and relax with your loved ones on the white powder sandy beach and watch the glittering bonfire on the shore.
Experience our fun search for wild dolphins while viewing the best sunsets the islands has to offer. One of our most fun-filled excursions, it’s an opportunity to see dolphins in their natural environment, jumping and doing their friendly tricks, and even swimming with the boat as you both go jumping and streaming across the ocean.
The coral reefs in the Maldives are inhabited by diverse marine life and are teaming with colourful fish. Snorkelling is the easiest way to enjoy the beauty found beyond the lagoon. Reef snorkelling takes place directly from the boat and is therefore suitable for stronger swimmers. Guests are advised to wear adequate sun screen.
Hop on board a local mechanised Dhoni and sail away across the North Malé Atoll to explore the different types of islands in the area. Snorkel, swim or take a nap while you top up that tan in our tropical paradise. You will discover a local island and see Maldivians at work and experience their island lifestyle. Visit a local souvenir shop where you can buy something to remember your trip. The full day tour includes a picnic lunch on the beach on of Bandos Maldives. Half day tours start after breakfast and we return to Bandos for lunch.
Malé must rank amongst the smallest capital cities of the world but it has plenty of atmosphere and history to interest visitors.
Explore the streets of this tiny and unique island city through a tour by experienced local guides. Watch the fisherman unload their catch at the bustling local fish market or wander the aisles of colourful Maldivian produce at the local market. Malé also has a number of interesting historic and religious sites that illustrate the history and culture of the Maldives.
Take a walk in the narrow lanes and witness the hustle and bustle as shopkeepers, fishermen, civil servants and businessmen all go about their daily business.
Step aboard our glass bottom boat and immerse yourself in a spectacular underwater world in complete comfort. Sit back and enjoy the breathtaking scenery above and below the gentle ocean waves as you float above the colourful corals and mesmerising sea life while blissfully gliding along the crystal blue waters. This is an ideal excursion for those who don’t want to get wet, but who still want to enjoy the splendour of this exotic expanse.
