The Maldives enjoy a sunny climate for the better part of a year. Hence, locals and visitors alike prefer to dress in lightweight clothes.

Since the Maldivians observe the religion of Islam, it is advisable to dress conservatively when visiting inhabited islands like the Capital Male’ City. The idea is not to wear revealing dresses. In the resorts you can dress as you please.

Most visitors prefer to wear T-shirts, cotton clothing, skirts and shorts. The preferred footwear is sandals and flip-flops. For classy dinners at resorts and visiting inhabited island’s semi formal and casual clothing will be perfect.

The Maldives is all about the white sandy beaches and underwater beauty. Hence, pack a lot of swimwear and beachwear.

In addition to the clothing, you can include the following items when you pack for your dream holiday in the Maldives:

  • Sunscreen
  • Sunglasses
  • Digital camera
  • Camcorder
  • Money belt
  • Hat or Cap
  • Torch light
