Activities for men in the Maldives

24 May 2021 | All Blogs, Destination, Experience

Activities at Baros Maldives are much more than sun tanning on the beach and romantic candlelight dinners. As many women list the Maldives on top of their travel wish list, some men might wonder if an extended holiday in the Maldives may be too boring. Baros defies the “boredom in a sunny paradise stigma” by offering a variety of activities that the most adventurous husband or energetic boyfriend will find rewarding.

Here are five activities that are also rewarding for men:

1. WATERSPORTS

Because Baros Maldives does not allow children under nine years old to visit, there is plenty of space and activities which are designed for child-free fun and action. Water sports activities are plentiful, allowing the physically fit to explore the waters around the island. The most relaxed option is to paddle around the island on a stand-up paddleboard or in a kayak but also the thrill of speed can be enjoyed by water skiing. Other water sports options like Wakeboarding, windsurfing and catamaran sailing are available too.

2. FISHING ALL DAY

When you visit the Maldives, fishing is the obligatory activity on the list for the sporting-minded. Big Game Fishing is a Deep Sea Fishing Experience on our specially designed vessel. Search the deep, blue waters for fast, ocean going fish such as Sailfish, Tuna, Marlin, and Wahoo and test your strength as you land the catch of a lifetime. If you catch a worthy fish, you can take it to the kitchen and cook your own dinner with our chefs, who will show you how to marinate and barbecue your catch to make a memorable and authentic Ocean to Table dining experience.

3. DIVING

There are many options for exploring the sea underwater at Baros and the Divers Baros Maldives team will make sure you do not run out of new dive spots and underwater secrets to explore. Tackle that dive certification you always wanted to have, or just participate in a discover scuba diving experience to see if you can get the hang of it. For those who have seen it all, join the team on a night dive or fluo night dive and explore a whole new underwater world at night.

4. TASTE BUDS AND FINE CIGARS

Cuban cigars like Cohiba Mini Cigarillos, Cohiba Siglo #2, Montecristo #3, Montecristo #4, Romeo y Julietta Churchill are all available at The Sails Bar for an inspiring smoke whether you are playing a game of chess or admiring the views of the surrounding lagoon through the palms. If Cigars are not your kind of leisure time pleasure, meet our chefs and experiment with Classic Maldivian Dishes. Experience the joys of creating Maldivian culinary delights for yourself with our award-winning chefs in a private hour-long cooking masterclass.

5. DINING AND INDULGING

Catch a glimpse of marine life at night in the lagoon below as you relax on the top floor of the Lighthouse Lounge. Witness the fiery hues of the Baros sunset as you celebrate the evening caressed by the gentle breeze and welcomed by the mellow rhythm of our live jazz band. With the finest wines, cocktails and canapés, this is the perfect setting to wind down after another day. Then descend for dinner in the Lighthouse Restaurant to indulge in the finest beef cuts from Australia and Japan or fish fresh from the Baros lagoon.

6. LUXURY CRUISES

Experience freedom on the high seas aboard a luxury yacht “Laura” – charter it for majestic cruises in the atoll, to snorkel or dive at your favourite locations or simply just to relax in the private saloon. You can set out into the sea the traditional way on our Dhoni “Nooma” with her sail billowing in the breeze and wooden prow pointed towards the horizon. There will be a private butler to serve to your every whim, and all that’s left for you is to enjoy the daylong adventures.
