Parasailing in Maldives

Duration: Half Day

parasailing in maldives

If you are looking for thrills and adventure on your holiday in the Maldives, parasailing should be at the top of your list for things to do. For those who enjoy a challenge, this fun and exhilarating water sport is an excellent way to view the beauty of this paradise archipelago from a bird’s-eye perspective, giving you plenty of exciting memories to take away with you.

The Maldives are made up approximately 1200 coral islands, which are grouped in a double chain of 27 atolls stretching over 800km from north to south. Surrounded by crystalline turquoise waters and coral reefs, it is no wonder that this breathtaking archipelago is such a popular destination for holiday makers.

Located on the equator, southwest of Sri Lanka and India, the climate here is generally warm and humid with plenty of sunshine throughout the year, so it is an excellent location to visit at any time. Only about 200 of the islands are inhabited, and just over 80 of the islands are used as resorts, so you will undoubtedly stumble across plenty of idyllic, secluded spots for swimming, snorkeling and sunbathing. Whether you are seeking pure relaxation on deserted islands, or adventure on the open water, you can do as little or as much as you want here.

If you would like to gain a unique and surreal perspective of the Maldives, parasailing is one of the most exciting activities available. It is also one of the most refreshing as the cool ocean breeze offers a welcome break from the tropical heat. Many of the luxury resorts offer parasailing as an activity and some offer instructions for beginners.

Enjoy fantastic aerial views of stunning coral islands, which lie scattered like gems in the clear tropical waters, and catch glimpses of pristine white-sand beaches and beautiful hotel resorts as you soar hundreds of feet above the crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean with a parachute, whilst being towed along by a high-speed boat. Enjoy the exhilarating feeling of the wind rush past you and the ocean spray against your skin as the boat speeds through the water. This is the ultimate adrenaline rush and an unforgettable experience.
