The Maldives; spread across the warm Indian Ocean is a number one destination for a holiday of fun, sun, surf and beach. But, packing just your snorkel and bathers is not enough. In order to enjoy a holiday of unlimited fun, keep on reading this article for the essential Maldives packing list!


Snorkelling Gear

If your resort in the Maldives is home to an activity centre, snorkelling equipment can from there. However, taking along your own snorkel, fins and mask are ok, especially if you are used to the equipment and feel comfortable with it. Snorkelling is one of the most rewarding sports in the Maldives and really, anyone with swimming skills can indulge in it.


For Exploring the Ocean

Amongst all the attractions in Maldives, swimming in the ocean takes precedence. You need to pack at least two swimsuits; one for looking fabulous and one for swimming in the sea, and you will be doing quite a lot of it since no one can resist the lure of the warm Indian Ocean. A stylish swimsuit will go down well for times you choose to chill by the poolside, many top resorts like Niyama Maldives, offer luxurious escapes and you should play the part.


Beach and Pool Accessories

A sun hat is essential; if you plan on exploring the surrounding islands and visiting Male the capital, you will most likely be spending time cruising the ocean. Hence, a good hat to keep your head cool is needed. Add to the list your favourite pair of sunglasses and of course, loads of sunscreen. Take plenty, since you may not find the brand you prefer on the archipelago, plus costs could be pretty high too. A good-sized tote or beach bag will come in handy for taking along your 'chilling out' stuff. A favourite book, MP3 player, a bottle of sunscreen, beach towel etc. add to this a good quality dry bag for storing your phone, camera and other equipment which may get damaged by sand and water.


For Dressing Up and Covering your Feet

The best dressing up you will do in the Maldives is when you attend dinner at your luxury Maldives resort. Even then light cotton dresses are best, choose colourful dresses, tops and skirts and shirts, with cotton pants for men. Kaftans are ideal and double up as a cover-all for when you're done swimming and as an elegant evening dress. Pack some gym clothes too for, working out and indulging in yoga sessions on the beach; top activities in the Maldives. You will find there's sand everywhere, and other than for flip flops, sandals are the best footwear. You will be walking about barefoot most of the time, but consider water shoes, for times you explore the reefs. Mind you do not walk on or damage the coral, though!


An Underwater Camera

Boasting over 500 species of marine life in its waters, the Maldives is beautiful both above and below the waves! An underwater camera is the best way to capture this beauty and take it back home. You won't regret investing in a good brand!
