So you are going on vacation. A tropical paradise awaits you, a scattering of picturesque atolls, where most hotels are located on separate islands. If you forget to take something important, remember – it will be difficult and expensive to find.
After the euphoria of anticipation of the upcoming trip will pass, you need to take a breath and sensibly think: “What should I take with me?”
The first thought that will visit you is a swimsuit, swimming trunks, and sunblock. Of course, this is important, but there are things that should also be put in a suitcase. So, we describe in detail what might be needed in the Maldives.
BEFORE YOU LEAVE HOME, CHECK OUT THE ESSENTIALS:
- International passport;
- Ticket reservation;
- Hotel voucher;
- Medical insurance;
If you are scheduled a transfer by seaplane, check in advance the baggage allowance. (Standard luggage weight – 20 kg, hand luggage – 5 kg). The excess is paid at the rate of 5 dollars per kilogram. Remember, luggage weighing more than 30 kg is not accepted on board a seaplane!
The coral reefs of the Maldives are part of the incredible and most beautiful underwater world of our planet that attracts snorkeling. At a minimum, this requires a mask and snorkel.
Equipment can be rented directly at the hotel, but if you don’t want to swim in a mask and snorkel that other tourists have already used, take them with you. Please note that some hotels charge a rental fee.
Recently, full face masks for snorkeling are gaining popularity. If you do not plan to dive deep – this is the most suitable option. In addition, some models are equipped with a camera mount to capture the underwater world. Full-face masks can be found, for example, in the Decathlon store.

The necessary photographic equipment.
The Maldives holiday destination is a special place, unlike any other. This pleasure is sensual, aesthetic, and contemplative. The Maldives do not need Instagram filters, because the reality is so impressive that it is hard to believe in it: white fine sand, clear azure water, tall palm trees. In order not to fill the phone’s memory, create a collection of photos from high-resolution islands using a camera.
The underwater world of the luxury destinations Maldives is fabulously rich, so this trip is an excellent opportunity to invest in an underwater camera.
Photo equipment checklist:
- Underwater camera;
- Charging device;
- Memory cards;
- Selfie stick;
- Underwater dome;
Going to the Maldives should prefer light clothing made of natural fabrics. The dress code rules are set by the hotel where you stay. Therefore, in advance, ask about the rules that are set for you. For example, somewhere, it is forbidden for men to appear for dinner in shorts and open shoes. But in general, casual luxury is the atmosphere of most resorts.
The Maldives is a Muslim country. If your plans include a visit to Male or islands where the local population lives, women should take a headscarf that can be worn over their shoulders, put on light pants or a long skirt.
We recommend girls to take at least one comfortable swimsuit. Bikini looks great while walking on the beach. But if you want to go snorkeling, diving or water sports it is better to choose a bathing suit.
