Must-Have Essentials to the Maldives – Make Your Holiday Truly Unforgettable

Don't miss an opportunity to take a trip to the Maldives where you can spend your days in sun-soaked bliss by the beach. Before you go there, however, it is important to plan what to pack and take some essentials that will help make your getaway even more memorable.


Swimwear Options

While you will take swimwear to an island destination like the Maldives, don't pack just one option but several which you can wear alternatively. Chances are, you are going to be spending most of your time out at the beach, ocean or pool so it is a good idea you have more than one choice; it will offer more photographic opportunities too!


Bags For the Beach

When spending time at the beach, having a lightweight beach bag that has a lot of space will be useful. Additionally, you can take a wet bag to put all your wet clothes or footwear, safely set apart from dry clothes. Also worth having is a dry bag, ideal to store electronics and other items away from the water.


Sun Protection

Soaking up the glorious tropical sunshine beside the ocean is one of the best things to do in Maldives; family resort options will provide various outdoor activities for young and old alike too. With that in mind, you need to bring adequate sun protection to ensure you don't get sunburnt. Make sure to pack sunscreen which is marked SPF 30 or higher as well as sunhats / caps and sunglasses for the glare.


An Underwater Camera

You may think this is not an "essential", but once you witness the stunning underwater landscapes full of colourful coral and marine life you're likely to wish you brought one along! Properties on private islands such as Reethi Faru Resort offer both diving and snorkelling in Maldives and having an underwater camera or GoPro will help you capture some amazing shots.


Waterproof Phone Case

Your phone is likely to be with you at the beach to capture those quintessential coastal or sunset shots that are bound to get plenty of likes on Instagram! Of course, taking your phone to the shore can be tricky since the last thing you want is for it to get wet or have sand go inside. What you can do is bring a waterproof phone case so you can rest easy and take selfies galore.


Clothing for Island Visits

While those staying at private resorts in Maldives are free to wear short attire and bikinis, this is not the case when at inhabited islands like the capital, Male, or at religious sites. Make sure you pack some conservative attire which covers legs and shoulders to be worn when visiting islands where locals reside.


Travel Adapter

The standard electricity supply in the country is 220V to 240V (50Hz Alternating Current) with three-pin UK-style sockets the most common one found. There may be variations though, so it's safer to bring a travel adapter for your electronic devices. You do not want to face an instance where you can't charge your phone or camera and lose the chance to photograph the many attractions in Maldives.
