Maldives : Things to do in The Maldives for 7 DaysLike1

Four Seasons Kuda Huraa

MALDIVES

Reasons why Maldives is

always the perfect escape!

WHERE TO STAY

Our recent stay in Maldives was at Four Seasons Kuda Huraa, a 25 minutes speedboat ride from Male. The little sister to Landaa Giraavaru and keeping up with the Maldivian Villagers style deco. Luda Huraa in Maldivian means “little island” and so, the little island was created in a way where you can walk everywhere almost as if you are in a little village. We spent 3 nights on the island and cyclone Ockhi was just ending but we did face some drastic storms during our stay. Each overwater villa has their own private pool and an option to chose between sunrise or sunset. We spent most of our days at sea exploring the dive center’s activities and only our last day, spent some time at the main pool, where you can also have your breakfast at Cafe Huraa. 

ACTIVITIES IN FOUR SEASONS KUDA HURAA

Surf Center  Some of the best waves in the world can be found just minutes away from Four Seasons Resort Kuda Huraa and it was one of the reasons why we decided to visit! The Resort’s surf school, run exclusively for Four Seasons by Tropicsurf, offers certified courses for beginners, a variety of clinics, and escorted excursions for more experienced surfers. Staff member also revealed to us the best secret surf spots! So if you are a surf lover, you will definitely love catching some waves here!!

Island Living  If you were ever curious on how the locals liven the island, then near Kuda Huraa sits the village of Bodu Huraa, where you can get a first-hand look at local island life. Take a boat ride over and enjoy a stroll past the village schools, see shipbuilders and fisherman at work, or stop into one of the small restaurants for authentic Maldivian fare.

Cruise the Four Seasons Explorer Four Seasons Explorer is their most intimate resort experience: a luxurious three-deck catamaran that embarks on 3-, 4- and 7-night cruises, plus private leisure, surf and manta ray charters into the undiscovered Maldives. It sails between the enchanting garden island of Kuda Huraa and the pristine hideaway of Landaa Giraavaru in the Baa Atoll UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

Water Activities One of the GREATEST things to in Maldives is spend 9 hours at the beach! Activities from Kayaking, Seabed water sled (which I loved!), snorkeling, jet skying, diving, sailing and you might even pick up a new hobby!

Dolphin Cruise I’ve always said that the most beautiful sunset is a Maldivian sunset and the best sunrise is the African one! Having done the dolphin cruise over 10 times, every time I hop on, it always gives a different and relaxing experience! 

Spa Experience Take a dinghy to another little island and experience the treatment rooms’ transparent floor panels look deep into the ocean while you have a deep tissue massage! On both occasion,  I saw some eagle rays right under my nose!

Turtle and Shark Safari Take a speedboat to a neighboring island and snorkel with the most beautiful fish! The Turtle and shark island is a very popular location where sharks and turtles are mostly found there. We found around 3 turtles and 9 sharks! Being underwater with these beautiful creatures is one of the best things about the Maldives and super safe!

Wreck Diving Divers, check this out! The Shipyard, where there are two wrecks near Lhaviyani Atoll, Skipjack 1 (the former Hokomaro 3) and the Gaaffaru. This is not our first ship wreck, the first one I ever saw was diving in Greece, but I have to stay, seeing the ships under water is one of the most eeriest things ever!

Learn More About Turtles The Marine Discovery Center in Kuda Huraa opened in 2011 and also houses the Maldivian Sea Turtle Conservation Program that helps to rear turtle hatchlings as well as care for rescued turtles until they are healthy enough to be returned to the sea. Kids can also attend marine biology camp for the day and learn so much about the marine life and it is extremely important that they do so!

Important Information Use fewer plastic products. Plastics that end up as ocean debris contribute to habitat destruction and entangle and kill tens of thousands of marine animals each year. To limit your impact, carry a reusable water bottle, store food in nondisposable containers, bring your own cloth tote or other reusable bag when shopping, and recycle whenever possible.

Travel Junkie Diary

Maldives is always the perfect escape

Maldives has always been the perfect escape for me and my family. I travel to Maldives alone, I travel there with girlfriends and I travel to Maldives with my husband and 6 year old daughter. It has always been a place in my element. The sea and the underwater life. As a certified PADI diver and a surfer, I host many small group travel to Maldives for volunteer projects to clean up the neighboring island and to educate the people back home on our marine world. Always remember to be mindful of using plastic such as straws, bags, bottles when in Maldives and avoid feeding fish or sharks. Always remember to never step on corals while snorkeling as you can kill them and it would take years and years for them to grow. They are very important for the marine lifecycle.  Click below if you like to register to join one of our trips for marine conservation.

  • One of the very few images in @joalimaldives that I saved on laptop before my memory card on my drone got completely corrupted and wiped out everything. 💆🏼 Note to self: Sh** happens 🐠 ☀️
  • She has a thousand things to say to you... and a thousand reasons not to 💫
  • It’s a fact that I struggle with words often face to face, because strong feelings can all be inside me but only left for me to feel them... It is not that the meaning cannot be explained... But there are certain meanings that are lost the moment they are explained in words, and that’s how, without any pressure, I’ve learned to take it all in... 💫
  • Are you a beach villa or a water-villa person?
Each water villa at @joalimaldives has a 35sqm pool (Apart from the ocean residence which have two pools like this one!)
Happy Sunday from the happiest island! ♥️
  • A wish you were here kind of day 💫
@joalimaldives
  • Maldives is a beautiful paradise but has a fragile ecosystem that plays a role to keep the magic alive. The construction at JOALI Maldives @joalimaldives was designed to build around the trees, to save as many as possible. They saved over 1000 trees and work so passionately on sustainability. 🐠 It’s very close to my heart that we constantly support and value our ocean especially the marine life ♥️
  • I love to introduce you to JOALI Maldives. @joalimaldives 
A brand new island that stands out because it has built its’ whole identity on ‘Joie de vivre’ which constitutes the art of living... really, truly living life, embracing it fully. Whether you call it living in the moment, or self fulfillment, joie de vivre is a quality and a feeling we can all learn to acquire. Say hello to the beautiful and unique @joalimaldives
  • It’s just who she is, a little entertainer, especially when I ask her to look at the camera so we can take a ‘subtle’ shot... but nope, instead, she breaks into her dance moves and I thought... why the hell not... and just took the picture. ♥️
  • One of the most beautiful places I’ve been to, Madeira Island 🌴 - An Island 2 hours away from Lisbon by plane! Have you ever been?
  • A year ago today I was in Cambodia 🇰🇭 💫
So much growth from where I was and where I am today, but I’ll always remember where I started. 
I’m curious to know, which was the first photograph you remember of me since you started following my journey?
  • A new week in the UAE and my last before being back on the road! It’s been a great break from flying but I think I’m ready to get back out there with my camera! 
Happy Sunday everyone! Kick ass in whatever you are doing today! ♥️
  • Who is coming with me!? We just released new dates for @travelwithtjd for 2019 and I am overwhelmed with your responses!! There is a power in disconnection and I find it right here! I now count the days to go back to Finland and everywhere in Scandinavia. 
Click the link in bio and join our Adventure Travel Movement in Finland in March 2019! Spaces are very limited 😊 and it’s an adventure of a lifetime in the most authentic way!! ♥️
