3 Water Sports To Try In Veligandu

With crystal clear shallow waters, endless stretches of sea and a cooling breeze, Veligandu Island Resort & Spa has excellent conditions for fun on the water. If you are looking for experiences that are more action-filled than the last ones we shared, you will want to read on. Take on the Indian Ocean and chase the adrenalin with these three water sports.

Stand-Up Paddle Boarding

Also known as stand up paddling or ‘SUP’, this sport allows surfers to stand atop their boards and use a paddle to propel themselves across the ocean. Stand up paddle boarding makes for a leisurely workout as you enjoy the seascape. The crystal clear waters in Veligandu ensure that you get to view the marine life beneath you.

 Windsurfing

Feel the wind on your skin as you surf across the sea. Windsurfing combines surfing and sailing to create an exhilarating experience at sea. Those who are not afraid to get their hair wet will enjoy gliding over the waves. Windsurfing is an incredible way to take in the sights as the tropical breeze guides you.

 

Jet-Skiing

By yourself or with your partner, hop on a jet ski and bump off along the waves. Adrenalin filled and thrilling, jet skiing is a wonderful way to experience the lagoon differently. Nothing compares to that moment when you are speeding off across the ocean, shouting at the top of your lungs and making a splash.

 

 

Adventurers are advised to practice caution and safety while out at sea. To ensure that the tranquillity that other guests enjoy is not disturbed, motorised water-sports are conducted at a distance from the beach. Our qualified Ocean Water Sports team is ready to recommend a Water Sports option that suits both your experience level and preference. Equipment rental and lessons can be booked at the Ocean Water Sports Centre, which opens from 8 am to 6 pm daily.

For seafood lovers, the Madivaru Sunset Seafood Dinner on May 9, 2019, is the dinner not to miss. Served on the quiet and romantic beach, watch the sun go down as your waiter attends to you.

On May 12, 2019, join us on the beach for our Mother’s Day Dinner. Our Executive Chef, Siegbert Horn and his team have created a sensational menu that will ensure you wrap up this special day in the most spectacular way. The incredible menu and the awe-inspiring setting by the sea will guarantee that you have a Mother’s Day to remember.

The Romantic Full Moon Dinner on May 18, 2019, and May 24, 2019, appeals to your romantic nature. The enchanting atmosphere under the moonlight, by the sea, as a cooling breeze blows sets the scene to enjoy dinner in the company of your loved one. Lose yourself in the wonder of the night and each other while you enjoy tantalising delicacies.

With the Bubbles & Lobster Dinner on May 31, 2019, Chef Sigi puts together a fantastic menu around the Maldivian lobster. Toast to the beautiful island life with a glass of Prosecco as you relish the delectable feast. Dig into the char-grilled prawns served with arugula salad, followed by grilled or steamed lobster served with asparagus pilaf rice, to mention but a few.

Finally, throughout the month, escape to a private location on the beach for the Signature Private BBQ Dinner. Secluded and idyllic, this highly requested dinner allows you to have the beach to yourself as you enjoy prime cuts or fresh seafood, expertly barbecued for you by your private chef.
