If you venture beyond the quiet realm of your villa and the wonderfully slow Maldivian pace of life, you'll find a wealth of recreational diversions. For a start, you can dive or snorkel in the transparent brilliance of the ocean, explore its riches, and go deep-sea or night fishing. After all, this is a paradise renowned for superlative fishing, sailing, waterskiing, diving and snorkelling. If you prefer, sit in the shallow waters and watch the myriad of exotic schools of fish dart in and out of the light. Enjoy a canoe ride with your partner or let the resort guide take you both on a leisurely catamaran ride. For more vigorous workouts, head for the resort's health & fitness room. And for the curious, take a ramble around Male' (the world's smallest capital) exploring its sights and shopping. If you have had enough sun, simply retire to breezy Naiboli bar for board games or some quiet reading.

Well known in the divers circle as a diving mecca. Why are so many divers hooked on this little piece of paradise? When you experience the crystal-clear waters of the Indian Ocean, its colourful underwater world, mind-boggling variety of fish and some of the spectacular wall and drift dives, it all makes sense instantly. Divers can choose to explore the surrounding waters of the island which has good dive sites or visit exceptional sites accessible by boat.

From dolphins to manta rays, moray eels to white tip sharks; you can have face-to-face encounters with the most magnificent marine creatures. With over 900 species of fish, the Maldives boasts some of the most breathtaking dive sites in the world with untouched ecosystems and unparalleled bio-diversity.

As a Five Star Golden Palm PADI Dive Centre, Banyan Tree offers the full range of PADI and Nitrox courses. They pay individual attention to each guest, so courses and dives are conducted in small groups of 6. They also offer specialty courses on Drift, Deep, Night, Boat and Naturalist diving, Navigation and Peak performance buoyancy dives, as well as a beginner's resort course and PADI Open Water course.
