The water sport is dangerous, yet fun as the large waves of water thrash the tube, followed by the high-speed current of water. Make sure to hold on tightly throughout your ride; the experience usually lasts for 10 to 15 minutes.


This is another fun-filled activity that you must not miss out. It allows you to cruise across the sky with a cool breeze kissing your face. While enjoying the parasailing experience over the clear azure water you get to soak in the fantastic panoramic views of this beautiful archipelago.

Magical Vaadhoo Island

The island is also called the Sea of Stars and is very different from the regular beaches. The seawater glows brilliantly under the light of the moon. The phenomenon that the water exhibits is known as bioluminescence, and it mainly happens because of the free-floating planktons. These microscopic creatures glow as a defence technique when they get attacked by the fishes. This is because of which it seems like the sea is shimmering and shining blue. The light emitted does not create any heat, so it is absolutely safe to play in the water.

COMO Cocoa Island

Even though Maldives are filled with tons of gorgeous islands, make sure this island is included in it. This is because the charm of this archipelago is incomplete without this island. The clear azure water and the pristine soft sand is something that will soothe your soul. The exquisite island is a tropical paradise for a relaxing and rejuvenating experience. The place is also famous for its comforting spa treats, scuba diving and snorkelling.
