Water Wonderland


Your Adventure Playground Awaits

Adventures on Miavana span the horizons of land, sea and air. Celebrating these elements, our array of activities on the island offers guests an immersive experience to discover, explore and re-awaken their senses.

Unlike anywhere else in the world, Miavana’s marine-protected waters transport guests to the ends of the Earth to experience the ultimate sea adventure in the Indian Ocean. With no set itinerary or time slots, our activities team tailors unique, adventure-filled itineraries to best suit your activity desires, according to the season you’re visiting.

Plan your days as they come and do as much or as little as you please from adrenaline-fuelled watersports to catch-and-release fishing and snorkelling in the waters right in front of your villa, we have an activity for every kind of adventurer visiting Miavana.

With warm waters and a wide diversity of kite spots around the island, Miavana is a kiteboarder’s paradise from May to October with our very own kite beach on the island. We have two R66 helicopters that fly guests out to reach otherwise unreachable kiteboarding spots, a first in the world with heli-kiting. Find the perfect jump-off point, land on a deserted beach – not a soul in sight – and be the first to map out an unforgettable adventure.


Whether you’re a pro or a novice, our private island is an excellent destination for fishing. Depending on the season you’re visiting, you’ll find species such as sailfish, marlin, mahi-mahi, giant trevally, dogtooth tuna and barracuda. Try your hand at deep-sea fishing, jigging, popping, trolling or fly-fishing on the reef flats with our top-of-the-line equipment and our passionate, experienced team. 


All aboard. Cruise into the sunset, explore the archipelago, stop off for a picnic or simply sit back, relax and enjoy the ride. Spot dolphins dancing in the wake of the boat, or migrating whales breaching from July to September. For a cultural experience, explore Miavana’s mangroves in a traditional dug-out canoe. 

Kayaking / Surfskiing / Stand-Up Paddle-Boarding

Up for a challenge? Take a trip around the island by Kayak or simply slow down with a leisurely paddle around the safety of our bay. Miavana’s calm waters provide the perfect training ground for stand-up paddle boarding, offering an all-around workout and beautiful views above and below the translucent water.


Upon arrival on Miavana, our activities team will kit you out with snorkelling gear that you can keep throughout your stay. Coral reefs fringe our island so you can snorkel right from the beach in front of your villa or venture further afield by boat to explore the reefs nearby.

Discover Scuba Diving

Exploring the waters is for the whole family. With a max depth of 2m, children aged 8-9 years old are able to do full scuba gear and jump in to explore our house reef while very closely supervised by one of our PADI instructors. We are a PADI-qualified dive centre with passionate dive instructors who are on hand to guide certified divers through Miavana’s vibrant reefs or introduce beginners to our shores through a variety of PADI dive courses.
