World Turtle Day, In Photos

Today is World Turtle Day! A day when turtles are #shellebrated, get it? May 23 is observed the world over to create awareness of and share knowledge about the protection of turtles. The sea turtles that abound in Meeru Island Resort & Spa waters are part of a species that has lived for more than 150 years! The way you travel to Meeru to seek sun, sea and sand, sea turtles often travel for thousands of miles, crossing oceans as they feed, before returning home. The common species spotted around here is the Olive Ridley Sea Turtle. Here are our favourite photos of sea turtles taken by you.

Snorkelling in the Meeru lagoon is a wonderful experience that is elevated by the Snorkelling Boat Trip. With this guided trip, a Dhoni transports you to a nearby reef where you can dive in and explore the vibrant and diverse marine life that the Maldives is known for. The Snorkelling Boat Trip is open for swimmers over the age of 12 and is a great group activity that you can be a part of with family and friends.

Sunset ‘Punch’ Cruise

Sunset Cruise Meeru Maldives

Sail into the sunset aboard a local Dhoni with our Sunset ‘Punch’ Cruise, a pleasant afternoon trip that affords you the luxury of watching the stunning Maldivian sunsets. Aboard the Sunset Cruise, you may sip on a glass of special punch as you take in the panoramic, one of a kind view. If you are lucky, you may spot dolphins frolicking in the glow of dusk.

Turtle Explorer on a Yacht

For a chance to hopefully see the sea turtles that have made the Maldivian waters their home, join our Turtle Explorer on a Yacht excursion. A yacht will transport you to the best reefs in the North Male’ Atoll where if lucky, you can swim with and photograph sea turtles. Included and served on board are lunch, drinks, pastries and afternoon tea or coffee. This life-changing experience is open to swimmers over the age of 18.

We have compiled a few ideas on how you can spend your time while on this tropical paradise.

Get In The Water

The turquoise Indian Ocean is not only famous for its beauty but also for the incredible marine life, which it houses. In Meeru, you can spend the day discovering the beautiful lagoon as a family, seeking out the beautiful fish, learning how to dive with EuroDivers in the Bubble Makers Diving Class for children from the ages of 8, or exploring a nearby reef through our Snorkelling Boat Trip. All of these experiences allow you to have fun and with the Diving Class, pick up a new skill. As you make merry in the water, parents are reminded to always keep a watchful eye on their kids.

Explore

Sunset Cruise Meeru Maldives

Excursions in Meeru provide the entire family unique and varied adventures. Tour the underwater world inside a submarine on our Submarine Sightseeing Trip or discover the charm of Male’, the capital city of the Maldives on the Male’ Sightseeing Trip. Take out to the sea aboard our Sunset ‘Punch’ Cruise and hopefully spot and photograph some dolphins. Visit a nearby local island on our Island Hopping excursion and get a first-hand glance at the culture. These are just some of the exciting things you can do together as a family in Meeru.

Learn

Meeru Museum

Exclusive to Meeru, the Meeru Museum offers a once in a lifetime chance to travel down history and learn a great deal about the Maldivian way of life. The Museum houses artefacts that show how the Maldivians used to cook, clean, travel, dress and learn. It provides a great history lesson for the entire family. A popular attraction at the Museum is the real-life skeleton of a whale shark that visitors love to take pictures with.

Play

Beach Volleyball at Meeru

There is much room for play in Meeru. With a colourful and equipped Komas Kids and Teens Club, the younger ones have much to do and occupy their time. Join them for a fun game of darts or pool. Alternatively, you can take to the water in our fun tube rides and enjoy the thrill of bouncing on waves. On the beach, a fun game of volleyball is excellent to bring out your competitive spirit. Table tennis, tennis and golf are other sports that you can enjoy in Meeru. For families that love nature, rent bicycles and cycle around this tranquil paradise and try and see how many tree species you can identify.
